Advanced Natural Design
Welcome to Concepts! An advanced sketching and design tool for iPad, Concepts is used by architects world-wide to design homes, enhance communities, build landscapes and plan renovations on-site, with clients, at home and at the office.
Architects can explore and sketch ideas naturally by hand, produce precision drawings to scale, iterate on designs quickly, export to software applications like AutoCAD, and instantly share their work for an efficient, mobile workflow. Designed as a smart yet natural replacement for all those reams of trace, Concepts is chosen by architectural firms, freelance architects, interior designers and landscape architects as their go-to mobile design tool.
Combined with the sensitivity afforded by the Apple Pencil, I was finally able to use my iPad as a true sketch pad.
