2, Instant Documentation

BIM-specific documentation requires you to handle and compile a large volumen of drawings and data. ARCHLine.XP 2021 offers powerful tools to speed up and automate the documentation and publishing process with the folloowing tools: 
  1. Clever Callout function displays part of the model at increasing levels of detail (LOD) keeping your design organized, by attaching additional drawing elements without needing them to be modelled in the original view.
  2. Bulk Print Queue large numbers of drawings (views and layouts) into a single PDF file in just a few clicks. Job done
  3. Lighting speed Section generation has been introduced. Even if your model is complex, the section is generated in seconds.
  4. Wall views with scaled furniture are just a click away. What’s more, the furniture can be shown on the wall view with or without its doors.
  5. Depth range option of objects on the floor plan provides cleaner 2D drawings, hiding unwanted visual elements that are further away than the distance required. Provide even higher clarity, easy to comprehend, uncluttered drawings.

3, Push / Pull

Create and modify unique 3D solids, using the Push/Pull command. Just draw a contour, and extrude any shape you need. You can even attach custom shapes to architectural elements. From broad conceptualisation of your ideas to detailed modeling of fine details Push/Pull puts you in total control of your modeling experience.

4, Linking IFC, RVT, DWG, PDF files

Visualize external content for coordination purposes, by linking different file formats. The IFC, RVT, DWG, PDF files are automatically updated when you open the project and can be manually updated at any time when YOU decide.
The linked models are displayed in both 2D and 3D and the associated BIM data can also be accessed.
