i do.. but then again, i wouldn't say i'm a typical architect-- in fact, when people ask me what i do, i just say 'carpenter' as it generally leads to less conversation afterwards
also, i don't need to do full on construction docs since i design & build.. i just use the models as the construction docs.. less work for me and easier to communicate with the crew when they're looking at the models..
i've also been using an engineering firm lately that's been ok with me just sending them .3dm files and they approve/deny/suggest from there..
a few screenshots/snapshots:
(absolutely loving the smash command for this type of stuff.. it's made my life much easier
this project from earlier this summer had some production companies in the mix and it was agreed all the info would be shared via sketchup files since everyone had it.. but everything from my side was done in rhino then either compiled in sketchup for the visuals or sent to the engineers as the actual .3dms
video of that one:
i'm just using the beta mac version for now but hey, i'm adhd.. i'm risky like that ... i just make sure i keep a prior .dmg around in case a new update goes bad (which has only happened once i think in the past few years.)
i don't have a complete rendering solution right now through rhino itself but i still manage to get some pseudo clay style things out of mac rhino's toucan which do the trick.. this is my current project which is (hopefully) going inside someone's house
anyway.. the answer to your question from me is yes, absolutely.. though it may be in a way that doesn't really conform to typical architectural standards etc..
