‘SitePAD: the first true CAD app for iPhone + iPad’ – ArchiCAD Monkey
In a couple of past articles I’ve talked about the different options offered for CAD on iPhone and iPad, and how nothing has really impressed anyone yet - bringing great frustration to many design professionals. We’ve transitioned from desktop to laptop quite quickly in the past few years, and now we’ve been aching for someone to create a useful app on the go. The existing apps are either too simplistic or just vector-based drawing systems - which give the impression of an architectural drawing - without any practical use other than creating an image of say a floorplan, which later must be traced over - most times inaccurately - in a proper CAD application to become useful.
So the other day I was very pleased to come by a website which lead me to a very promising iPhone app, called SitePAD. I was even more surprised to find out that one of the creators of the app - Timothy Barnard - was actually a coursemate of mine from Manchester School of Architecture. I had a chance to chat with him over a drink, and it seems Tim and his brother Paul have formed “Fresh Design Base Ltd” and together set out to create the first truly workable app for drawing and viewing CAD files on the iPhone, thus the appropriately named : Pocket Aided Design (PAD).

SitePad. First 2D CAD on iPhone and iPad. Aiming at 3D.
BY JOSH ON APRIL 27, 2010 · VIEW COMMENTS
If you felt a rumble in the aether that ended up with a guy suddenly appearing in your face poking your eyeballs with a tablet computer, you’re probably not dreaming and you’re probably not holding back a good solid punch to his gut.
Neither is Timothy Barnard of Fresh Design Base, a Manchester, UK web design firm and creator of SitePAD. He created SitePAD (Pocket Aided Design) to “extend your office capabilities onsite” via your mobile device and provide a way to share the data through an online interface with your team members.
It’s not only the first CAD app on the iPhone and iPad, but is taking direct aim at developing a 3D version and defining what subscription-based CAD apps and touchscreen functionality will be like. We discussed the product with Tim and got the low-down on why he created it and how it helps in design. Read More...

Sitepad draws up a plan for IPhone app success
A Sale-based architectural student and his brother have launched an iPhone application which they say will greatly speed up the process of getting architects’ sketched ideas translated into technical drawings.
Tim and Paul Barnard’s Sitepad app was approved by Apple to go on iTunes earlier this week.
The app allows architects and surveyors to sketch their plans on an iPhone or iPod Touch in CAD format while on site.
This drawing can then be sent via the Sitepad website to be downloaded back at the office and converted into a full technical drawing.
Tim, 26, currently in his eighth year of studying to be an architect, said: “Hardware has now developed to such a point that...Read More...
SitePAD launched as the first truly mobile CAD platform, extending office capabilities on site, saving time, gaining time and revolutionizing the CAD industry.
