    • Various industry standard export formats

      Hi,
      I find your app as perfect mobile input companion for different CAD applications.
      I guess you could gain more users if you would provide more industry standard export formats besides dxf and Archicad: I am looking forward to export to Vectorworks (.vwx).
      Sure, one could use dxf but it is seldom smooth and painless.

      Thanks
      Robert

      • Emergency Evac maps

        Symbols showing exit signs, etc for Evacuation Maps.
        Heavily populated buildings such as schools, manufacturing facilities, office buildings and stores should and oftentimes are required to have an Emergency Preparedness Plan to be prepared for natural or man made disasters. A valuable component to any plan is the Emergency Evacuation Map that shows the location of safety equipment and exit routes. An accurate floor plan is essential to the creation of the EEM.

        • export option

          Have the export be read by Chief Architect. This would increase your sales of your product. http://www.chiefarchitect.com/

          • Columns, Beams & Roof Structures

            Can Orthograph draw structural members like columns, beams, purlins, bar joists, and truss joists?

            • Is it possible to handle multiple projects in OrthoGraph?

              I need to work on multiple drawings using my iPad. Can I create more drawings and switch between them using OrthoGraph Architect?

              • Demo projects in various export formats

                Here is a sample .dxf export file from OrthoGraph Architect 3D. OrthoGraph although works in 3D and creates its building model in 3D the DXF export format currently is only a 2D file. If you need 3D CAD output from the App then either created IFC files or use the OrthoGraph ArchiCAD Import module to import OrthoGraph's native file format.
