Archicad is BIM – and BIM is the Future
WHAT IS ARCHICAD?
Archicad is BIM software. Building Information Modeling, or BIM for short, has largely replaced classic CAD.
When you explore Archicad, you will notice two things right away:
YOU‘RE WORKING ON A CENTRAL 3D MODEL
Modeling is intuitive and fast, and you immediately see the dimensional and aesthetic effects of any changes you make.
THE INFORMATION IS STORED DIRECTLY IN THE MODEL
This can be information on the design, about operation, even instructions on how to recycle a component. In later phases, you can add project or component information at any time — for example, fire protection or surface material specifications when preparing for construction.
