Why Every AEC Company Should Have a Color CAD Plotter

Posted by Kevin Vaughan on Fri, Sep 11, 2020 @ 09:19 PM

Historically, the construction industry is based on one of the most inefficient work models on the planet. In fact, according to Wikipedia, The construction industry has suffered from a productivity decline since the 1960s while all other non-farm industries have seen large boosts in productivity.

 

Times are changing though, and many leading firms are now focused on improving their processes, communication, and collaboration efforts. Most of this is supported by the latest software technologies. Naturally, this has affected the need for as many paper construction drawings in the past, but these plans are still vital to many people involved in the project. But, there needs are different, and more than ever, they can benefit by having a color CAD plotter.
