ARCHICAD’s remastered Façade Design workflow enables architects to design, develop and detail hierarchical curtain wall systems with great freedom using modular patterns. The design happens with a natural graphical input in the most natural design environment in 3D or 2D elevations, while ARCHICAD ensures the curtain wall system is structurally correct and adheres to local requirements for documenting and listing.
Expression Based Properties
ARCHICAD 22 allows you to use logical expressions to derive new properties and property values that depend on the element’s own parameters. This new function greatly enriches the information — or “I” component — of BIM. Its automatic workflow lets you define any calculation rule as an element property value and update it automatically, without time-consuming and error-prone manual data entry.
The GRAPHISOFT MEP Modeler™ is an Add-On to ARCHICAD®. Firms using ARCHICAD can use the MEP Modeler to create and edit 3D model-based MEP networks (ductwork, pipework and cabling) and coordinate them within the ARCHICAD Virtual Building. The MEP Modeler uses a familiar interface and tools integrated right in the ARCHICAD environment.
The [eptar] solution helps designers to draw documents and lists the necessary reinforcement for their buildings in ArchiCAD. The application provides tools to define all 2D drawings as well as complete 3D models.
[eptar] provide great freedom in defining constructions and also help to specify complex objects. Eptar Reinforcement checks the rebar ID numbering and corrects it if necessary. With tools, users can simply calculate the necessary amount of rebars. Iron list is available on the floor plan just as the interactive schedule.
OPEN BIM is a universal approach to the collaborative design, realization, and operation of buildings based on open standardsand workflows. OPEN BIM is an initiative of several leading software vendors using the open building SMART Data Model.
