"Just downloaded a copy of the free version, after it was recommended by a friend, and it is really neat."

"The online tutorial was really helpful in doing the really hard stuff using this amazing product."

— Anand. Bala, Bahrain

"Thank you so so much for such a beautiful tool."

"Wonderful application. You can work so much quicker than in other CAD programs like ArchiCAD and VectorWorks. ...I found it intuitive and very pleasant to use."
— Mario Lenoti, New Zealand

"I would like to congratulate you and your company for the effort that is this truly amazing piece of architectural design... Even though I already have AutoCAD 2000 I find this software more easy to manipulate, yet it yields very intricate design."
— Ashley Espedido

"WOW!!!!! I downloaded the lite version of DesignWorkshop to see if it is as difficult as all the other programs of this type and after working with it and the tutorial for an hour I see this program is much more intuitive and powerful. I can't believe I just created a cottage with the help of the tutorial. I wish your company great success because if there is a piece of software out there that deserves it this one is IT!!!!"
— Lance

"You have a truly great product!
"The intuitive interface is marvelous, to say the least... I'm very impressed with its import of 2d plans..."

— Tom Patton


"Thank you very much for the quick reply, you have the best customer service I have ever come in contact with! ...
"I have been producing about four models such as I sent each week lately, your program is a dream come true for an old matte board and number five x-acto blade model maker."

— William Maple, Principal, exhibit designer, Maple & Associates, California

"It's so easy. Design, wallify, assign textures, and voila! In practice, architects want to be able to build a quick model. This is perfect."

Michael Anonuevo, Douglas Teiger Architects, Santa Monica

"I finally got around to using your product and I wish I had done so earlier. The program is all that you advertised and more!       It's intuitive in traditional Mac style, and is complimentary to a 3D designer during that Zen-like process of creation. I've already demonstrated it to several associates and they we're just as excited as I was with the results. I recently did my first complete CAD project for a client, from concept to presentation, to plans using your program. Usually CAD models look too geometric or "computerish" to use as a presentation tool, but the shade and shadowed images of DesignWorkshop were not only strong enough to present to the client, but also sold the concept and complete job contract."

William Maple, Principal
  Maple & Associates, California

"I've got to hand it to you. Not only do you provide free software, but you support it...FAST. You get my "Gold Mouse Award" for a Great Product backed up by Great Service."

John Weakley, Ontario, Canada

"I am blown away by the texturing capabilities. The speed is amazing. This update will be really helpful in our design presentations to clients."

James J. O'Neill, O'Neill and Zimet Architects

"It took me two hours in DW to get to the progress of 30 hours of learning ArchiCAD."

Paul Setti, Project Architect
  Stephen P. Herlong & Associates, South Carolina

"DesignWorkshop presents the quickest and easiest interface for us to begin designing. I'm able to get a lot accomplished in a short time. The learning curve is quick."

David Bailey, Senior Architect
  Department of Parks and Recreation, State of California

"Amazing technical support."

D. Peter Bacot, Davis Design Drafting, Davis, California

"DesignWorkshop is the best design tool I've seen."

Dr. Alec Goldenberg, New York

"...I really like the online user's guide. I have used it extensively..."

Adam Robins, Department of Architecture, University of Oregon

"Everybody here is thrilled at what it's doing for us. We can address and remedy 3D issues much sooner, especially in terms of roofing. We're saving money... We can run 3D design in parallel with with a 2D drafting program without taking a performance hit."

Larry Martin, The Roybal Corporation, Denver

"Before, we presented with renderings. Now we create multiple scenes, walkthroughs, and make multimedia presentations on a PowerBook. It really wows the client."

Michael Anonuevo

"The fast rendering of lights and textures, and the ability to get right into the spaces you design and look around has made this an absolutely wonderful and involving design tool."

"Love the Tree Machine app from Artifice's web site. Thanks for a great product!"

Nathan Wilbur, Landscape Architect

"I am really enjoying creating my building and being able to make people see my vision! Without DW...I don't know if I would be so appreciative of computer modeling."

Ross Leventhal, NBBJ, Seattle

"Really enjoying the new software (Classic). I've had it less than a week and have rendered two building projects."

Rick Mullen

"As architects we're trained to think in 3D, but clients are not as able to visualize. DesignWorkshop bridges the gap."

David Bailey
