As part of my Projects Portfolio: CAD & PV-Systems I will be showing you what tools and software I use. Furthermore, I will be updating this area with more projects later in the future.
If you would like to contact me just click here, and I will kindly reply back.
I am an Architectural Designer and this (with a few more things) is my goal of a house. Trailer House are a great way to save on money and play with very nice layouts for a home. This example is a simple 48′ trailer converted into a single bedroom house. Fast to build, cheaper than a normal house and a blank canvas to create your own space.
– Aurora Solar –
Recently I started working with Aurora Solar to complement my PV System Designs. This is an easy to use software as well as a really powerful designer tool. Above all, It can help you simulate the system performance, calculate costs, design some really neat systems and so on.
In my opinion, this application has so many tools that I think it is its own post. I use it as web application and I’m using google chrome in my gaming laptop.
Disclaimer: I made this as an example. It is a screenshot that I took of roof somewhere in the world and placed a PV system on top of it. If this is your house and want to take the picture off please message me and gladly will take it off .
– PV System – One Line Schematic –
This is a one line diagram of a photo-voltaic system. I created this based on the standards of an engineer, the electric utility inspector and company designer. For me, making this was very simple. In fact, you only need to know the basics parts of a system and the rules of the NEC (National Electric Code) that are required to comply. After that One Lines become routine.
I work with this every day, so it is really interesting to see the little details that change depending on the model of the inverters, the PV module and OCPD. I used for this project AutoCAD LT because is something really simple that you can design based on knowledge and experience.
– Architectural Drawing –
I completed this Architectural drawing for a Bar & Museum project in Puerto Rico recently. For this project, the foundations will be made out of reinforce concrete while the rest of the structure will be wood and a metal sheet roof.
Me and my dad created a set of drawings using AutoCAD 2017. Just plain drafting and design no complicated procedures or tools. I’m using this time a custom built computer using an Nvidia GeForce GTX 960, Intel i7 5th Gen and 32GB memory of RAM (I love this desktop).
– Proposed 3D Rendering –
I created this rough preview rendered in AutoCAD 2017. My client needed a 3D view to visualize the goals. The main goal is expanding the parking lot to a non develop area.
How I create this is really a simple process. First I’m extruding from a proposed 2D drawing, secondly I’m adding materials and textures, then I add some 3D blocks to show off some environment and finally render. I’m using a Nvidia GeForce GTX 1050 on a gaming laptop with a Intel i5 7th Gen.
