Embellishments

In TAD, we embellish our objects till we are happy that it captures exactly what we want to talk about in our designs.

An embellishment is a detail, that is added to make something more interesting and useful in our understanding In our case, we would keep thinking what else do I know about that object as we proceed with the design. Do we know its height? Then add that, and therefore increase the embellishment! Do we know its level? Yes? Then add that too… Do we know some other property it may have? Good. Now add that, and embellish that object even further

When an architect works on a design, the design process will lead him/her through various knowledge about the objects in his/her design. This method of adding embellishments to any object is central to TAD being a “BIM” i.e. it can handle any number of information that may be present on objects.

Unlike other conventional BIM software; TAD does not have user-interface elements for most of the embellishments tha t one can think of. That is deliberate. Only for height and level and few other things, TAD does give an interface for those embellishments. But for everything else you need to use Ardela and write a small code for that new embellishment you want to insert, for which we have not given a user-interface element.
