Edit

Edit any type of architectural object via 
a powerful high-level API.

Create

Create any standard architectural object, or extend the object model with your own fully-functional custom objects.

Write

Save architectural objects with their design data in the latest architectural object version.

Visualize

Visualize architectural objects on any platform using any device through .dwg in the Drawings SDK and visualization in the Visualize SDK.

Publish

Publish architectural objects to rich, functional 3D PDF, or standard 2D PDF using the Drawings and Visualize SDKs.

Architecture as an Application Kernel

Instead of importing and exporting data from your application, extend Open Design Drawings with Architecture to work natively with .dwg and architecture data. Join the growing group of Open Design members who are using Architecture and Drawings to power their architectural CAD applications.
