I was myself contemplating this just last night. What I found is that during any design process you tend to be totally consumed by the project. It is always in your head in various degrees of course. You look at your drawings, making small changes, trying to improve your design.
This gets tiring after a while. You get sick and tired of staring at the plans, sections etc, and you start doubting whether itīs a good design or not.
This is where Iīve found Archicad to be enormously helpful. I can actually go inside the building "walk" around and see whatīs there. I can render an image in Artlantis and get some really great views. The computer software helps me "see" the building. It provides another way of looking at the project. You can actually see the spacial qualities of each room. This is helpful because you can be inspired to work more on the project and break through the "boredom" of a project.

Furthermore, it makes changes (even late changes) easier to make than if you have a "hard copy".
