PLUG-INS FOR ARCHICAD

ArchiCAD Plug-in for Terrain Modelling
A common problem faced by ArchiCAD users is the creation and management of 3D terrain models. The ArchiTerra Plug-in was developed to resolve this problem. To create a realistic setting, designers often need to contextualise their projects within certain surroundings. This allows the environmental impact of the project to be monitored throughout the planning phase. The need for such functionality may also arise for city planning or landscaping purposes, requiring the creation of more or less vast 3D terrain models.

ArchiCAD 9 – AxisVM 8 I/O

Workflow:
o The architect creates the model of the building structure in ArchiCAD. The load-bearing structural elements can be modeled using the beam, column, slab and wall tools.
o Then the model is exported via the IFC 2×2 format into AxisVM 8.
o In AxisVM, the structural engineer makes the necessary modifications and additions on the structural model and performs the required structural analysis on it.
o The architectural documentation is created from the original model in ArchiCAD
o The structural engineer creates the structural documentation based on the structural model in AxisVM.
