His name is Michele Calvano, an Italian architect specialized in Reverse engineering of 3D models for design purposes. He has been chosen to open our new section of interviews with professionals that are using VisualARQ as a regular tool for their work.

His long academic and professional career – he is an architect and researcher – has brought him to innovate and search for new solutions that meet the current market requirements. And then he discovered VisualARQ.
