In various sectors and industries, the use of digital design drawings has enabled the collection and visualization of relevant job data. The emergence of the CAD system changed several branches of the design segment and until today it is one of the main methods used. However, the evolution of society and technology culminated in the development of the BIM methodology, seen by many as promising in the design of projects, as it allows graphic improvements while integrating the project participants in the different phases of the work. Such an approach becomes information focused by exploring parametric and 3D representations of virtual models. In this article, both CAD and BIM contributions to the industry are raised through a case study of a residential electrical project developed by the company CGWorks.
