DomusTerra is a new low-cost program for architectural land modeling. DomusTerra springs from Interstudio's vast experience in the land modeling and representation sector, begun in 1988 with the first release of Nonio C.

DomusTerra 3D land modeling software for architects and landscapers, suitable for smaller projects.

DomusTerra has all the characteristics of its big brother Nonio C - interactive modeling, walkthroughs in real time, supports textures, supports plug-in renderers - with some limitations regarding direct plotting, modeling and allowable number of points. While Nonio C is best suited for more elaborate surveys and for modeling large tracts of land, DomusTerra can be used for smaller projects and architectural landscaping.

A land model created with DomusTerra can be exported to an architectural program, such as Interstudio's own Domus.Cad or Graphisofts ArchiCad, where it may be viewed and elaborated along with the architectural model. The reverse operation may also be performed: an architectural model may be imported to DomusTerra (in QD3D MetaFile format) where it can be placed directly on the modeled landscape.

DomusTerra imports and exports in Domus.Cad, GDL, DXF 3D, QuickDraw 3D MetaFile, and DigiCad 3D formats.

Here are some key features of "DomusTerra":
supports documents of up to 1 points
imports in XYZ ASCII, DWG 3D, DXF 3D and QuickDraw 3D MetaFile formats
exports in Domus.Cad, GDL, QuickDraw 3D MetaFile, and QuickTime VR Object formats

automatic generation of triangles, contour lines, and surfaces
allows direct intervention of model using break lines
vertical sections from polygons
special calculator for surface and volume calculations
integrates Domus.Cad information.
