The list below is by no means complete. We just want to give you an idea of the CAD services we provide.
2D CAD drafting
Your conceptual sketches can be handily translated into 2D drafted technical or schematic drawings, ready to proceed to next phase of your design.
It can be Architectural, Landscaping, Interior design, Masterplan or Shop drawing scribbles on paper, table napkins or cardboard! If you want something copied to a two-dimensional technical draft from pictures, PDFs or online references, we can do it. As long as we can infer dimensions and scale with your guidance, they can be encoded straight away.
Paper to CAD conversion
We encode into CAD from PDF or JPG files, as long as measurements are readable.
We also take references from actual pictures. Do you have a structural glazing or floor connection picture you took somewhere from your travels? Or the loveliest spiral staircase you want to include in your project? Got a house to sell, but missing the floor plans? We do our best to draw and detail the same according to your requirements. We always ask you if the outcome is as how you imagine it to be.
We draft Detail and Shop drawings from your examples or just show us a reference and we can flesh out the technicalities to your satisfaction.
Wood workshop drawings and millwork, either in metric or linear, is part of our, ehm, woodwork. Fabrication of metalworks zoom in to the tiniest screws, so it's always better to tweak on drawings than get a disastrous product from your workshop. We can work with whatever standard you are employing for your outfit.
If you only require wireframes and render on your own or instruct us on your visualization needs, we can easily work with you either way.
You can basically send to us whatever 2D/3D state your project is, or we can also start from scratch. We start fleshing them out to your specifications. We have been working with Sketch Up, 3D Studiomax, and Autocad 3d. We are still under training for Revit.
Wether drafted drawings and colored renderings or presentation sheets, AEX can help you present your project professionally.
We know this is one of the subjective aspects of Client presentation. What we can do is work with you on layout, graphics and schemes. We understand your clients always ask for a dozen different options in the end. That's why you need more hands working in coordination on that final project.
Home renovations & extensions
Even a small area in your house that needs renovation requires a clear set of technical drawings.
Whether a bathroom upgrade, adding a swimming pool or remodeling your kitchen, AEX can execute these in a matter of days. Perhaps you have a modular furniture system in mind or set of technical information, just direct us to your reference and we shall do the rest and coordinate with you every step of the way.
All your design ideas and concepts would be understood better by your clients with a stunning picture. Photorealistic renders are the closest to visualize these. We include rendered floor plans and perspectives complete with sunlight or nightime options and designer accessories.
Frequently Asked Questions
What kind of office is AEX?
We are a licensed and registered design and technical consultancy based in the Philippines. We do not have multiple cubicles of freelance or part-time drafting persons across the region.

Everyone is an architect working full-time for AEX, supported with administration and management people.
Which types of CAD drawings do you provide?
Do you compile architectural specifications?
No, we do not compile architectural specifications, general or detailed, as that is largely dependent on your office protocols. We do encode the text descriptions or specifications of any reference materials that you provide or point us to.
Will you check regulations and standards?
We are informed generally of the International Building Code (IBC). We have worked with the British Standards and the DIN. We are also experienced with the US protocols via the American Graphic Standards. However, we do not guarantee specific applications to your projects. That is very dependent on your technical and aesthetic designs.

Yes, we can and do accommodate Lump Sum monthly fees for a team of AEX architects working solely for your office on single or multiple projects.
What is the lowest price you can work for?
We offer CAD services for as low as $45 per sheet. However, we cannot say anything sensible about the costs for your project, unless we have some detailed information.

How does the free sample service work?
After you have specified your project details and uploaded some reference files, we will produce a single finished drawing sheet. Please allow for a delivery timeframe of 2-4 days. You can also email us directly with your trial project if you prefer.
The free sample will basically demonstrate the quality and output levels you can expect from our team. If you are satisfied with the result, we can use the sample as a base to continue our cooperation.
