Illuminando is a native Cocoa OS X CAD, specialized to perform lighting calculations using interactive tools that allow to obtain a simple and effective input. After calculation the result are presented in 3D OpenGL and in a complete RTF report.
Illuminando has a CAD interface that can generate morphologically defined parametric objects (vaults, hipped, domes, etc..) or freely be generated through the use of primitives (cubes, spheres, cones, etc..) in order to simplify the design procedures, and also can import from DXF 3D files. The working window projects objects within a three-dimensional space that displays the axial reference system and a plane of virtual modeling. The rationalization and intuitiveness of the available commands allow the acquisition of the graphics tools provided by the Application, minimizing the learning curve. Moreover, UNDO and REDO command allow the possibility of control and security in the work developing. Powerful LAYER and VIEW management, intelligent PASTING options (the Application allows to copy the attributes of an object and paste only those that is possible to transfer on an object with different characteristics), RESHAPE, MOVE, ROTATE, MIRROR, SCALE, OFFSET, rectangular and polar ARRAY, EXPLODE, JOIN, DIVIDE, EXTRUDE commands, online HELP for the execution of commands: these are some of the possibilities offered by Illuminando.
Some utilities permits to manage specific needs:
