7 (More) Websites to Help Us Be Better Architects

Last year we published a list of 22 websites meant to make an architect's job a little bit easier. From selecting the perfect color scheme to tracking the price of your next big purchase, solving technical problems or simply trying to balance your sleep and caffeine intake, the list sought to offer solutions to a diversity of issues – with something (hopefully) for everyone.

This year we offer an addendum with seven additional sites meant to further allay the ever-stressful life of architects. From using peripherals for additional screen real estate to receiving your daily fill of the top architecture news, or converting PDFs to DWGs and adding scale figures to models, ArchDaily seeks to share more of the best of what the web can offer to architects.

Scale

1:25, 1:50, 1:87, 1:100, Scale offers a variety of architectural figurines meant to add the to-size people that every model craves.

Modelo

A 3D collaboration platform meant to revolutionize the CAD industry, Modelo uses best-in-class technologies and design thinking to alleviate communication, presentation, and project management challenges. 

Sketchfab

One of the leaders in VR, Sketchfab is browser-based platform for sharing and viewing 3D models that seeks to make this technology as universal to architects of the future as digital drawings and renderings are today. 

CadSoftTools: PDF to DWG Converter

This online automation transforms PDFs into editable AutoCad DWG files with all the lines, polylines, hatches, arcs, ellipses, and images intact.

PimpMyDrawing.com

Need vector based characters to populate your renderings? PimpMyDrawing.com offers high-detail outlines of models to complete monochromatic project schematics – and they're free!
