Barry Milliken is a practicing Registered Architect with extensive computer aided design (CAD) experience. He uses Visio for most of his design work because it’s an easy and cost effective 2D graphics program. Barry created a custom solution for drawing site plans in Visio and has partnered with Visimation to offer it as a Visio add-on product called visiSitePlan.
VisiSitePlan contains several stencils with intelligently programmed shapes that automate a variety of drawing tasks. The beauty of using Visio for these kinds of plans is that you can more easily create very colorful drawings suitable for presentation as well as for the actual construction. Most traditional CAD systems produce line drawings that are not very attractive.
This solution combines Visio’s built-in features for architectural drawings with Barry’s enhancements and Tutorial files to help you get started. There are also shapes and tools for properly calculating and annotating site information.
This is for homeowners and designers who would like to draw these plans without spending thousands of dollars on a CAD system. It’s especially economical if you are already a Visio user.
