ARCHICAD Design Concepts – Sections and Elevations from the BIM

ARCHICAD Design Concepts

The following narrated movie clips introduce the core design concepts of GRAPHISOFT ARCHICAD and will highlight the crucial differences between a Building Information Modeling (BIM) design and documentation solution and a regular “2D CAD” application.

Sections and Elevations from the BIM

In ARCHICAD all plans – like floor plans, sections, details or elevations – are extracted directly from the three dimensional central design model. You can continue the design in any view — the changes will be carried out through the entire project model! Just imagine all the benefits! All the views are automatically coordinated by the central Virtual Building model.
