Tensile structures and fabric structures are still a relatively niche product and we understand many architects and designers may not have the time to familiarise themselves with the basic principles and shapes required to create beautiful and practical tensile structures. This can lead to issues with design and costing and often to last minute decisions on whether to keep the tensile elements or not which can often seen as be surplus to the overall specification.

Here at Fabric Architecture we obviously see fabric as anything but surplus to a beautiful design and with this is mind, we have made our most popular structures available in dwg. files making them accessible to drag and drop directly onto your CAD plans and 3D modelling platforms. With the increasing use of technology, the rise of BIM and improvements in modelling software’s it is important for all members of the design, engineering, or construction industry to remain current and accessible. We know collaborative working is the future of the industry, increasing coordination, quality of planning, transparency, and accountability.

The 3D model library is available through the education section of our website, where you can sign-up to receive a free dropbox download of all 74 files spanning a rage of sizes and styles suitable for outdoor use. Whether you are designing schools, business parks, or outdoor event spaces, there are plenty of structures perfect for the job.

Our 3D Model Library is available to architects, designers, and students alike as we aim to take the stress out of your technical planning.
