Discover ArCADia BIM newest version, which is based on the new CAD graphics module.
Here are some of the significant changes in ArCADia BIM 14:
Tool Palettes - The Tool Palettes have been expanded and can be placed on the side of the program screen. This option is especially useful if you use wide, panoramic monitors, where the icons placed on the ribbons at the top of the screen take up too much useful drawing space. You can put the most needed or all necessary options on tool palettes, and turn off the ribbons, thus enlarging the work screen. You can define tool palettes yourself; you can also export them or import them to another workstation.
ArCADia BIM System- Significant changes have also been made in the ArCADia BIM system, which installation designers will especially appreciate when drawing, for example, overlapping elements. Until now, it was difficult to select or modify an element lying under another one. Now all elements are visible, even those "hiding" under other ones. In addition, the level of detail in views has been changed quite significantly. Projects that were created in previous versions, and in which the level of detail has not been modified, will have the Average level which means that the pipe will be drawn with two lines and will show the actual area it occupies. In the Low level, it will be drawn as before, i.e., with a line, and elements such as e.g., fittings will be shown with a symbol. In the High level of detail, however, you can even see the thickness of the ventilation duct casing.
3D Views- In ArCADia BIM 14, it is possible to introduce a real 3D view for design elements in all installations, i.e., when entering for example a basin, it is possible to replace the default view with a specific object downloaded e.g., from the manufacturer's website. These changes should also be appreciated by architects who work with industry professionals working on the same BIM system, because through a properly introduced object they gain the certainty of connecting the installation to the product of their choice.
