What is Production realism?

Like photo realism produces realistic images on your computer, Production realism enables you to create your advanced 3D furniture design right on the computer screen, taking advantage of all the great Vectorworks interiorcad 3D modelling and presentation features. And because you are not interested in pretty pictures for their own sake, you have full control over the production process of each part of your design at every single step along the way. What you build on the screen will be milled, drilled and bevel jointed on your NC machinery. Last, but not least, bill of materials, costings and other workshop-ready documents are taken care of, too.
