The program enables the user to import IFC files (e.g. from Revit and ArchiCAD) to the ArCADia BIM system as well as to export an architectural design along with the installations and networks, in the IFC format.

The program allows to import the body of a building in the IFC format (e.g. from Revit and ArchiCAD) while transforming objects (walls, ceilings) into elements of the ArCADia BIM system. When a design, with the installations and outer networks, is imported, elements of these installations are loaded as 3D objects with the information about their properties. The program exports ArCADia BIM system designs in the IFC format through exporting the body of a building with the installations and outer networks. 

If a design has been created and exported correctly, the objects that are imported from an IFC file will be converted into elements of the ArCADia BIM system or into 3D objects with the information about their properties. If the objects do not comply with the assumptions of the system (e.g. all ceilings from all levels have been created on one level), they might not be loaded when imported.

is an industry-specific module of the ArCADia BIM system, based on the ideology of Building Information Modeling (BIM). The application is designed for structure designers and it was designed to maximally support the user during the development of reinforced concrete column drawings in CAD applications.

ArCADia-REINFORCED CONCRETE COLUMN is an object-based Application which uses 2D data entered by the user (in the form of views and sections) to generate a 3D model of column reinforcement which may be freely modified and which enables, for example, the new sections to be created. The element reinforcement designing with this Application is in line with requirements of EN 1992-1-1 Eurocode 2: September 2008. The Application enables the designer to enter the reinforcement data manually and also captures these data directly from calculation applications: EuroFerroConcrete module of R3D3 3D Frame and R2D2 2D Frame software, and Reinforced concrete column PN-EN of Constructor system. It is also possible to copy selected, already completed column from the same or prepared previously file.

ArCADia-REINFORCED CONCRETE SLAB is an industry-specific module of the ArCADia BIM system, based on the ideology of Building Information Modelling (BIM).  

The program is intended for construction engineers. The purpose of the application is to provide maximum support to the user in developing detailed structural drawings of reinforced concrete slabs in a CAD program.

The ArCADia-REINFORCED CONCRETE SLAB is a structural program, which creates a spatial model of the slab’s reinforcement, allows further editing and, for example, automatic creation of new slab cross-sections, based on the data entered by the user, in the form of views of the slab’s top and bottom reinforcement plates and the element’s cross-sections. The shaping of the slab’s reinforcement plate in the program is possible based on the guidelines specified in the PN-EN 1992-1-1 Eurocode 2: September 2008 standard. This program allows the entry of data regarding the slab’s shape and support by the design engineer and captures data concerning the slab’s shape and support directly from the ArCADia-ARCHITECTURE program based on the set ceiling. If the cover of the given level in the ArCADia-ARCHITECTURE consists of several ceilings, all ceilings after their selection are transferred to the ArCADia-REINFORCED CONCRETE SLAB program as separate models of reinforced concrete slabs.

The ArCADia-REINFORCED CONCRETE SLAB program includes the following features and capabilities:

  • Ability to design multiple slabs within one document.
  • Ability to transfer the ceilings including their support conditions from the building’s model in the ArCADia-ARCHITECTURE program.
  • Ability to build the geometry and reinforcement plate of the slab in two main views defined separately for the top and bottom reinforcement plates as well as any number of assumed slab cross-sections.
  • Full control of the visibility of the drawing and printing of the views and cross-sections and their components as well as the ability to switch between them when working on the model.
  • Free panning and adding of new slab cross-sections as well as setting the depth of field of cross-section reinforcement.
  • Ability to freely shape the slab’s contours and its supports in the form of walls, columns and joints as well as the introduction of openings of any shape into the designed slab.
  • Automatic inclusion of rectangular reinforcement grids for any given shape of the slab or its fragment with maintenance of a uniform or altering grid reinforcement in both directions as well as maintenance of the vertical (top and bottom cover) and side cover for all grid bars.
  • Automatic inclusion of rectangular reinforcement grids for the user-defined area inside the slab of a rectangular or any other shape.
  • Ability to copy the defined grids within the scope of the top and bottom reinforcement as well as between these surfaces.
  • Ability to bend the bars from the top grid to the bottom grid.
  • Ability to introduce regular densities of the reinforcement in both directions in the selected area of the given grid and to make a copy.
  • Ability to introduce a cut-out of any shape in the predetermined grid, regardless of the opening in the slab.
  • Ability to modify the grid’s contours and the direction of the main and secondary bars in the grid as well as the ability to strip down the grid into single bars (any compactness in the grid is stripped down along with the grid strip-down).
  • Ability to add single bars to the grid in the main or secondary direction (constituting a grid bar until the grid is reconstructed).
  • Ability to copy the grid bars (constituting non-removable bars after grid modification).
  • Ability to modify the length of single grid bars (until the grid is reconstructed).
  • Ability to move the entire distribution of the bars in the grid with its maintenance after grid reconstruction (without removing the grid).
  • Automatic removal of the distribution of excessive grid bars based entirely on the slab’s support area (walls and joints).
  • Ability to establish vertical punch fittings in the areas of direct slab support on columns.
  • Automatic inclusion in the list of reinforcement steel of the regular distribution of the top grid’s support tables.
  • Dimensioning of the reinforcement in millimetres or centimetres with the ability to set the accuracy.
  • Automatic inclusion of the necessary radiuses of reinforcement bar bending.
  • Ability to create reinforcement bars of any shape.
  • Ability to modify the diameters and properties of reinforcement bars.
  • Automatic ejection of reinforcement bars, including their dimensioning and description (details of reinforcement bars).
  • Ability to insert an aggregated numbering of the slab’s reinforcement bars and their descriptions for bars with a regular increase in the bar’s length, which limits the quantity of bar numbers in the slab.
  • Free insertion of reinforcement descriptions to element views and cross-sections.
  • Automatic continuous numbering of all bars within one document or for one slab.
  • Ability to freely shape the dimensioning of the slab’s geometry.
