ARCHICAD 22 is launched by GRAPHISOFT

GRAPHISOFT has introduced ARCHICAD 22, the updated version of ARCHICAD building information management (BIM) software. Given below, some exclusive features of it.

Better Facades: The Curtain Wall tool is entirely redesigned and transformed to a real design tool rather from just a modeling tool.

The new Curtain Wall tool contains an interactive preview, where it is possible to arrange your required facade design with frames and watch it appear on the wall. If it is required to employ a repeating pattern, the pattern can be produced in the preview tool, and can be selected how many times you want it to repeat on each wall. If you prefer to apply the similar facade patterns among projects are required, you can arrange the design in your Favorites folder, where it is easily accessible. To deal with more complex facade design, the frame tool can be applied to sketch or trace a pattern, then utilize it just as you would a regular frame.

One can also obtain 3D shapes and structures as part of your facade, and formed with standard “smart frames” that automatically modify their borders when it is required to cut or relate panels.

The Rhino-Grasshopper Connection: The Curtain Wall tool also performs in collaboration with Rhino’s Grasshopper tool, a visual programming environment that facilitates you to produce generative algorithms.

Practically, it signifies that one can generate patterns that function in the background of your facade pattern, like making the pattern tiles smaller on one part of the facade than on another or making organic shapes within your patterns. It also facilitates you to import photos or images as a pattern, in spite of drawing the pattern freehand directly in the curtain wall tool.

Parametric Building Components: In ARCHICAD 22, the parametric standard elements and non-parametric custom profiles are merged to create intelligent profiles for elements as well as manage their shapes and sizes and their cross-section through BIM parameters. It allows you to model various components (e.g., one column or beam that has to be slightly longer) with the equivalent profile. The auto text label that is created will automatically modify on the basis of which components it is dragged to.

Expressions: The new Expression Defined Properties capability facilitates the users to acquire more organized information from the model devoid of too much manual work. The new capability allows you to utilize any information accessible in the project (e.g., number of rooms, floor area, wall height) in custom expressions to answer questions like “How many boxes of tiling do we need for the floor?”

The product of these expressions is also utilized in other expressions. As for instance, you wanted to know the cost of those tiles, you could plug your first expression into a second expression.

Updates to BIMx: BIMx’s Hyper-model is a suitable way for integrated 2D and 3D building project navigation. But, in earlier version, it could only be seen on a mobile device. This version contains a web viewer that facilitates you to navigate and explore the building from a browser. It allows access to the complete Hyper-model, as well as an auto play mode is included that flows automatically through saved favorite views of the building. To end with, these BIMx walk-through videos are implanted into a website, facilitating the architects to generate online portfolios which comprise of 3D project images.

There are many parts can be seen at the starting of Revit 2019, from that window if user launches the icon named Sample Architecture Project many options can be seen which is pre loaded with Revit 2019 new features.

• On the upper of the left side in the Revit window users can see pre loaded navigating options which are opened in the window and make easier to move on from one tab to another. The best thing is that there is multi-screen support and tabbed views which make Revit 2019 a multitasking one. The windows can be maximized, minimized etc. at the same time.
• The Free Review option has added some levels in it which can be edit, remove as per the design; the Crop Window option has also added few things.
• The Graphic filters are also added and it upgraded new levels in 3D to work easier.
• Revit now allows having Complex Fill Patterns and Life like Rendering to work and have fun with patterns.

• Next feature is Split Railing that has simplified the modification and creation of railing in one click.

There are many more features available in Revit 2019, so it is worth to have a try them. autodesk.com

Autodesk launched newest BIM software called BIM 360 Design

Autodesk introduced new and advanced BIM Software known as BIM 360 Design to allow efficient collaboration in Revit by improving data sharing and permission structure.

This newest application will empower the team members to explore data and information across the BIM 360 Design platform as well as work in concert all together whether they’re a cubicle or a continent apart.

In addition, the system’s updated permission structure facilitates each team to obtain private virtual workspaces and distribute the on-going projects. From now onwards, the designers don’t have to send files to and fro, because all collaborators will perform in equivalent system.

With the help of a new Design Collaboration Module, teams can properly monitor the data exchange, milestone achievements, and deliverables on a visual project timeline.

Progress can be also monitored in an automated visual representation of the design and it will allow all the team members to check what is completed.

BIM 360 allows the users to avail everything from a web browser, making collaborative working well-situated and intuitive.

bim.aero – The newest free program for BIM professionals

The iluac software, a company from France, recently launched a new program called bim.aero, to deal with the barriers which BIM delivers to designers by facilitating them to produce BIM models with software they are well versed.

The program can be downloaded from the Mac App Store. The software facilitates the users to develop a BIM model and database from almost any CAD or 3D source model. As the designers will be able to utilize their CAD or 3D design software according to their choice, they don’t need to focus on BIM considerations throughout the design and drawing phase of building projects.

bim.aero facilitates the users to import a 3D model as per their choice of CAD software. As soon as the model is imported, the user will be able to develop a BIM database by allotting the BIM hierarchies with in-built templates and standard IFC property data. Presently, bim.aero permits 3D models for being imported from the formats given below:

• SKP and SKB file formats (SketchUp)
• 3Dxx file format (3DTurbo)
• DXF file format (AutoCAD)
• FBX file format (Autodesk)
• OBJ and MTL file formats (Wavefront)
• 3DS file format (3D Studio)
• STL file format (3D Systems)
• DAE file format (COLLADA)
• ABC file format (Alembic)

After importing the model into bim.aero, users can simply generate BIM data hierarchy, and set up connections among its components and the imported geometry with predefined templates and user-friendly, drag-and-drop features. The users will be able to produce their own property and quantity dictionaries. The software is also applied to explore BIM data and navigate through a model, as well as render it, transforming it a robust 3D visualization tool.

bim.aero is free, but with the use of the software’s Premium Pack (in-App purchase), it is possible to export a final BIM project with the IFC 2×3 format. IFC is a base language that can be employed to deliver information among BIM applications whereas retaining the definitions of various types of information in the transfer. It arranges for BIM interoperability.

bim.aero offers the following exclusive features:

• An easy to use Mac interface
• Include different types of data to elements in a 3D model
• Generate and compose BIM hierarchy and visualization
• Drag-and-drop BIM entity to geometric components
• History of operations on any individual model components
• Find out components in the BIM by clicking on a map
• Intuitive and powerful hierarchical selection
• Apple Metal API-based rendering with anti-aliasing and Retina display support
• Perfect per-pixel transparency with fresnel term
• Cut-Planes
• X-Ray
• Textures and transparency
