I am Ahmed Saad, architect. I am very interested in the field of CAAD and how computer can help man in architecture through different design and building stages . I have a QUESTION that I hope you can help me answering it or telling me who or where I can find the answer.
I am asking about if there is a software that can help man recognising a drawing in a certin format and solve it structurally?
OK, I will explain more. I imagine a software that can import dwg file (for example) and tries to recognise it's architectural elements like stairs, doors and walls then manipulate with this recognised drawing as an architectural elements (not as just lines) then the software can calculate and analysis this plan and of course I can get structrual output drawings and results.
I wish I could obviously explain what I hope to find. Please help me to know all information about this software even if it's just a research. and which organizations and universities can I contact to knoe more?
thank you very much for your time,
Ahmed Saad, Architect
