Great architecture requires collaboration of all design disciplines. Architects have a central role in coordinating all aspects of their design with other disciplines during the entire design process. ArchiCAD 14 turns IFC technology into full-fledged workflow solutions enabling collaboration with engineers regardless of their discipline or the name and version of the application they prefer working with. This “open” approach to interdisciplinary collaboration greatly broadens designers’ options for real Integrated Project Delivery (IPD) resulting in faster delivered projects and significantly less coordination errors. New features include:
• Refined Model Mapping which extends ArchiCAD construction element data by adding new properties such as “IFC Element Type”, and “Structural Function” to provide the foundation for model mapping with engineering BIM models.
• Direct Link to Structural and MEP Application through the use of IFC translators optimized for exporting model data to various applications, including Revit Structure and Revit MEP.
• Streamlined Autodesk AutoCAD 2010 DWG I/O which enables architects to coordinate their designs with engineers using traditional 2D workflows. ArchiCAD 14 introduces streamlined DWG/DXF 2010 Import-Export and support for DWG formats used by all Autocad 2010 based application.
• Next Generation Teamwork is revolutionized even more by optimizing the management of design teams working on shared BIM projects.
