The first part, Multidisciplinary Data Exchange, describes typical workflows between ARCHICAD and such professions as Structural and MEP Engineering. It also explains how to set up your ARCHICAD model for optimal export, and which ARCHICAD features (e.g. change detection) can help you manage an imported model.
The second part, File Handling and Exchange, lists all compatible file formats, and details how ARCHICAD interacts with file formats such as DXF-DWG, PDF, and Point Clouds. The last section, Working with IFC, is a detailed reference for ARCHICAD’s sophisticated capabilities for optimal IFC-based exchange.
