2D & 3D CAD technical design

progeCAD Architecture 2014 is an advanced powerful BIM solution for parametric Architectural design and is fully compatible with AutoCAD® and other CAD programs supporting DWG/DXF/IFC file formats. It offers a winning combination of general-purpose CAD features and sophisticated functionality of the Building Information Modelling system along with the incontestable advantage of the DWG environment.

The program optimizes projects creation by making the building design phases easy and straightforward: from modelling to rendering, and up to interactive virtual tours of a model. Besides, progeCAD Architecture 2014 is compatible with the Windows XP, Vista, 7, 8 operating systems supporting even the latest Windows 8.1 OS with significant engine performance improvement. The intuitive GUI is quite familiar as it includes all drawing and editing commands and tools of the generic industry standard CAD software.

progeCAD Architecture FEATURES
The newly implemented features which dramatically increase the versatility and flexibility of the design process are:
IFC 2x3 file format import/export: The support of the IFC file format, the standard object-based file format with a data model for better exchange of architectural projects, will contribute to full compatibility with other BIM applications such as Allplan®, Revit®, ArchiCAD®. The IFC format allows to import and export building data, including such complex objects as stairs and roofs, significantly reducing data loss.
Multiple Viewport creation on one Layout with the possibility to separately handle visualization options will speed up the creation of unique views of a project and facilitate print layout management.
progeCAD Architecture 2014 version is also showcasing the following features:
• Single hided roofs of any shape defined by polylines
• Render engine and material compatibility improvement
• Print improvement with Plot options support
• Insertion of X-Refs with Solid ACIS
• Changes in the default values of some parameters or commands to ensure compatibility with the latest AutoCAD® versions (like in Tolerances and MText)
• Changes allowing plot preview and settings display even with no printer selected
• Background colour support in MText (through the Property Panel)

Owing to the fact that progeCAD Architecture integrates the BIM technology, the user operates directly on a 3D model, that ensures the speed of execution and editing as well as great creative freedom during the process of modelling. It is possible to insert complex parametric objects (such as doors, windows, roofs, stairs, 2D/3D furnishing) directly in a 3D model observing their interaction and transformation in real time. Immediate visualization of all modifications in 2D and 3D dramatically saves up time and reduces errors when revising a project. Along with the generic CAD features and architectural intelligent BIM components, progeCAD Architecture provides the tools typical of the advanced DWG environment, such as: ACIS 3D solid modelling, advanced rendering, animation creation, CTB and STB print files support, free 2D and 3D block libraries. The architectural design is further assisted through complete image management with high quality photorealistic rendering, 3D/4D smooth animation, as well as material maps and topographic components.
