What is BIM?
This information is used internally by the CAD software and exported to the project team to add computations like energy analysis, calculating structural loads, lighting analysis or heating and cooling calculations, etc.
Coordinated and computable building model
You work in one model with many views as floor plan, sections, and elevations. Your BIM project are fully coordinated and don't require any manual updates to keep it synchronized.
Components that makes BIM
3D doesn't mean having automatically BIM. Computations performed by the project team are using the 3D model as data source of information. The project team requires data in standard format. Shared parameters, templates, project parameters, object properties are the data sources we mean by the I in BIM.
BIM communication between the project team members
The standard BIM file format is the IFC, which contains all building information data gathered from or added to the project and this same format can be used during the whole life-span of the building.
Most important features:
Export / Import features
Import & Export CAD Files
Frequently you have to send your project to someone who needs a CAD file. You can save your work as DWG and DXF files even if your project is a multi-storey building in one step. The geometry remains intact through the import and export operation and layers are also preserved.
Import & Export 3D models
ARCHLine.XP supports 3D file formats such as 3DS, SKP, OBJ, ATL, C4D, VRML, Indigo, and Autodesk FBX. Using this export feature you can establish a good direct connection with some of the most popular professional rendering software.
IFC Export - Industry Foundation Classes
The 3D model can be exported into IFC format based on the IFC2x3-TC1 version.
The IFC model export format generated by ARCHLine.XP is the way in which the 3D architectural model information can be transmitted to Structural, Quantity take-off or similar applications.
