BRING OUT THE “I” IN BIM

ARCHICAD 20 leverages well-structured information resulting in informative design visualization, which ensures enormous efficiencies throughout design and construction.  With the help of smart filters and brand new graphical override, designers can freely change the representation of any 2D and 3D views of elements with similar properties. This feature allows a number of workflows that make communication, coordination and model checking much more efficient.

INFORMATION IS ARGUABLY THE MOST VALUABLE PART OF BIM AND ARCHICAD 20HELPS DESIGNERS TO BRING OUT THE MOST OF IT!

STORING THE INFORMATION IN BIM

ARCHICAD 20 allows users to utilize their Building Information Model as the central storage place for all related information. They can even easily store and maintain design information that was not created using CAD or BIM tools, like Excel spreadsheets.

ARCHICAD’s ‘Mass property value import’ functionality offers an easy way for semi-automated data import/export from and to Excel worksheets.

Using this method, architects can replace the tedious task of entering their consultants’ data manually, where the number of human errors are considerable.

SHARE INFORMATION IN BIM

SHARE GEOMETRY AND DATA WITH THE LATEST TECHNOLOGIES. 

ARCHICAD 20 has improved its current IFC- and BCF-based OPEN BIM workflows by exporting color-true precise element geometry, implementing survey point (national datum definition), enhancing property management and mapping, sharing physical properties of building materials, etc.

In addition to supporting IFC‐based workflows, implementing other ways of BIM data communication such as gbXML and direct export to PHPP means that designers can exchange data with engineers and consultants from numerous disciplines, without the risk of information loss.

Information sharing via purpose-made tools such as BIMx or generic tools such as Excel enables a much wider target group to get involved and use the wealth of information stored in the BIM.

Designers can easily define the representation of any 2D and 3D view and reduce the need for traditional supplementary 2D CAD work.

By defining “Graphic Override Rules,” new, unchanged and demolished representation of elements can be created for renovation projects; structural, MEP, and other layouts can be created with specific color-codes, line-types and pen-colors; semi-automated, 3D construction documents will offer greater clarity.

Models overridden by colors (including the colors defined by renovation statuses and mark-up highlights) can be shared not only between ARCHICAD teams, but with other disciplines and applications via IFC-based model exchange.

GRAPHICALLY ENHANCED DRAWINGS

DRAWINGS ARE CREATED BY ARCHITECTS FOR ARCHITECTS. 

ARCHICAD’s focus on architecture, backed by more than 30 years of experience and innovation, is evident in millions of buildings worldwide.

From the outset, ARCHICAD has been developed from the ground up by architects for architects to address the architect’s desire for great design without compromising on practical needs.

ARCHICAD’s focus on architects ensures that the design workflows and collaboration tools serve their needs from the first sketch through the full life-cycle of the building.

The ARCHICAD toolbox is laid out according to the architect’s workflow – Design, Documentation and More provide quick access to even specialized functions like creating wall ends and corner windows.

ARCHICAD 20 brand new Graphical Favorites provide excellent visual feedback about saved element settings with automatically-generated, colored 2D or 3D thumbnail previews – available instantly for every tool.

Unlike Revit where graphics and architectural representations are heavily dependent on the setup of the graphic parameters and templates, ArchiCAD by default has the ability to generate drawings that are already architecturally represented before making any type of adjustments.

Graphic Favorites entries, selection sets, single or multiple entries can be exported in various formats (binary or XML) to help ensure modeling, project or office standards for every member of the team.
