  1. Can I chip in my thoughts? I agree with VW not being that intuitive to model in. Have you considered Sketchup? The architectural practice where I used to be the head of the vis. department used VW as their main draughting software, but Sketchup for massing models and detailed 3D models (or rather we eventually persuaded the architects to start using Sketchup!). Depending on the project we would either take their model into C4D and carry on modeling, rendering, etc. or model the design ourselves in Sketchup from their VW drawings. And apart from the usual ridiculous deadlines it all worked pretty well. I would say the combination of Sketchup, C4D and Layout (Sketchup's side-app to dimension and layout drawings and export as DWG/DXF files) would suit you perfectly. Nothing I've used beats Sketchup for quick architectural modeling. It's very easy to learn, and it's as accurate as any other CAD package. You might even find you don't need C4D for rendering if you use Vray in Sketchup. Not much good for animations, but great for stills. It even does lighting analysis which may be useful to you. Hope some of that's useful Cheers Pete
