ShadowDraw is a simple and quick tool for the accurate preparing and checking
of shadow diagrams. It is an essential tool for architects and designers, town planners and building surveyors.
There is now a version of ShadowDraw for most major Australian
locations; Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane, Adelaide, Perth, Hobart and
more.. We also offer a custom design
service for specific locations and needs.
ShadowDraw has been available for 22 years and is the acknowledged
industry standard, used by every council and most architects and designers
(Victoria and NSW). Its simplicity has been acknowledged by the Planning
Institute Awards and support by the HIA (Victoria).
The Melbourne kit also comes with a set of six overlays that interpret
the provisions of Rescode. These have just
been updated to take into account Amendment VC99. These are really useful
tools for planners and designers alike.

The key to the manual ShadowDraw kit is its simplicity - it does not
require computers or calculations. The kit comes with three A4 size transparent
overlays that enable the user to plot shadow diagrams for winter, summer and the
equinox. The kit comes with overlays, booklet with simple instructions
and other useful information.
The overlays can be used on plans of a variety of scales.
It produces accurate, reliable and fast results. In addition, it provides
designers with the opportunity to better appreciate the impact of building
proposals, assisting in more site responsive and energy efficient outcomes.
