ArCADia BIM is a CAD software system that intelligently supports and coordinates all participants throughout the design process in line with BIM (Building Information Modeling) technology. Work in a CAD environment using BIM tools, with object drawing and quick documentation creation. Use many features that significantly accelerate design work in the construction industry. By using objects such as a multilayer wall, doors or windows, you can quickly create CAD drawings, without losing anything from the full compatibility of the project with the DWG format.
Based on a well-known and developed for many years CAD platform,ArCADia BIM guarantees full compliance with the DWG format.
Support BIM technology, object-oriented architectural design.
Ready-made architectural elements: multilayer walls, stairs, bases, columns, chimneys, windows and doors.
Compare and merge documents.
Automatic floor entry, additional support for Teriva ceiling design.
Drawing of flat and spatial technical documentation and its writing to the native DWG format.
Work on layered drawing with the use of groups, blocks, external references and raster backdrops.
Precise drawing with use of Cartesian and polar coordinates, characteristic points and tracking.
Work on a real-world model and print at any scale on a specified sheet of paper.
Support of the IFC format. Exchange design data with other programs.
