Just as you planned!

ideCAD® Architectural is developed for project design of all sizes, is a powerful software that will meet all architectural requirements, such as architectural drawings, rendering and animation. ideCAD® Architectural also allows you to easily prepare architectural detail sheets with its superior two-dimensional drawing features. Providing a platform for working with civil engineers, it shortens the design process and increases efficiency through information communication and sharing.

Building Information Modelling (BIM)

ideCAD, including integrated architectural and structural (reinforced concrete and structural steel) software, shortens the project time with the product that allows different disciplines to work under the same infrastructure, with the oppurtunity to create, review and edit the project together. While the changes made by different disciplines are revised within the same building information model, efficiency increases. 

BIM is not a stand-alone program. BIM is a process that by working together with architects, civil engineers, mechanical engineers, electrical engineers and other disciplines, preparing the 3D model of the building to include the characteristics of the materials and materials to be used during the design phase and reducing the time and material losses that will occur during the construction. In summary, it is the name of the process that enables analysis such as energy efficiency before starting project. In this process, ideCAD provides full automation in architectural and static project.

Architectural, Reinforced Concrete and Steel Structure Design

With ideCAD Structural, reinforced concrete and steel mixed multi-storey structures, hall-type and industrial structures, canopy structures, stadium and similar structures, multi-storey reinforced concrete structures with steel-fitting roof can be modeled.

 

Owing to Building Information Modeling, common data is studied in the architectural and static project design process. In the system that enables architects and engineers to work together on the same structure. The project is modeled once and "Full Integration" is provided. Architectural plan and formwork plan are two different modes of operation within the same project and overlap exactly.

Architectural and Structural Integration

There is no need to re-model architectural projects prepared with ideCAD Architecture for static reinforced concrete calculations. Because the Building Information Model is created in the architectural project phase. Building objects such as walls, columns, beams, foundations, stairs, floors are common for both professions. In addition, the properties of the objects such as width, height, and material are the same. In this way, the engineer receives a project from the architect consisting of elements whose parameters are determined almost entirely at the end of the design work. Defining the walls and floors during the architectural project phase allows the project to start engineering without any loss of information and time and shortens the static project process.

Data exchange with other programs

In addition to sharing the three-dimensional building information model of projects with other BIM programs with the help of IFC data, the program allows to read and save in 100% AutoCAD compatible DWG format, and 2D architectural drawings can be imported and used as a base. Data exchange is provided with DXF, DWF, OBJ, BMP, JPG, TIF, TIFF, PNG and TGA formats. With PDF compatibility, projects can be examined "without having the program".

By transferring data to SAP2000®, ideCAD allows comparison of the analysis results of structural systems. Projects can also be transferred to Tekla.


From Desing to Presentation

For preliminary projects, proposals, automatic cross-section and views, permit projects, details, quantities and bill reports, decoration, landscape design, and visualization is in to the one program.

 

Preparing Construction Permit Project

Ready-to-print license sheets with automatically generated cross-sections views..

Details
Using 2D drawing tools details and manufacturing drawings can be prepared.

 


Modelable Structures

Reinforced concrete and steel composite multi-storey structures, hall type and inter-storey industrial structures, canopy structures, stadiums and similar structures, multi-storey reinforced concrete structures with steel overlay roof, the lower floors of reinforced concrete, subsequent steel structures can be modeled.

Reinforced Concrete Systems
Using ideCAD® Architectural, plan and formwork plan can be prepared in the same project with two different working platform and it is compatible.

 

Steel Systems
Using steel profiles from library, you are able to create steel structure projects and visualize it.

Reinforced Concrete and Steel Composite Structures
Get more modern projects by incorporating reinforced concrete and steel structure into the architectural process!


Terrain, Site and Landscape Design
Terrain Modeling
With coordinates of sketch or contour lines you can model your terrain. On the terrain gaps, pavements,flatness, roads, pools, and building can easily built. Terrain measurements and any elevation can be checked.


Excavation Analysis
Cut and fill volumes are automatically added to the list.


Facade Design
Jamb Design
Doors and windows can be drawn by profiles and jamb design is automatically drawn from jamb object tool.

Railing Design
In addition to the railing object in library, user can also define special additional railings..

Curtain Wall Design
Curtain Wall can be drawing by lines, arc, and spline commands.

 
Frontage Covering
All frontage parts can be modeling with weather boarding, fuga, and terracotta sheetings only with one step.


Object Library

ideCAD® Architectural has a lot of tools from furnishing to the landscape in its library. In the software it is possible to create your own design or import from other libraries.

Inclined Libraries

Objects that automatically detect the elevation and angle of the floor are placed in accordance with the surface slope.


Free Modeling
Using flexible modeling options from library and  it is possible to add other structural elements to the your projects..
Geometrical Objects Library
Sphere, box, prismatic, cone, tube, torus and loft objects..

Extended/Rotated Objects
Possibility to design different architectural objects by using special cross sections...


Decoration Works
Using hundreds of objects in libraries and free modeling possibilities, you can easily create your decoration with ideCAD.
You can follow the model from beginning to end in 3D and you will make a difference in your indoor projects with high quality visuals and animations.

Story Plans with Furnishing
You can take a cross-section and perspective views from anywhere of story.

3D Texting

With 3D text command, 2D text that you will write in the plan is it becoming 3D by giving a thickness. Angle and elevation parameters can be entered and horizontally, vertically or angled planes can be obtained. 


Visualization

ideCAD® Architecture brings the quality of visualization and your designs becomes back to life with photo-quality rendering and animations.


Animation

Using the latest software technologies, you can navigate your project with the opportunity of animation designed according to today's needs and prepare photo-realistic presentations.


Cross section and View sheets
You need to only draw story plan in order to have multiple cross-section views of structure.

Technical cross sections and views
Automatic sections is prepared in details according to the project control form.
(Axle, plastered and metered display)
Appearances in Presentation Technique
Presentation techniques for brochure, portfolio, and webpage.


Quantities and Bill Reports
From architectural modeling the quantity and bill reports is prepared automatically. Door and window gaps of the wall is automatically substracted on the calculation of quantity and bill reports. Any changes on the project is uptaded immediately to the quantity and bill reports.


Model Presentation with 3D Printer
 
Your ideCAD models are exported as three-dimensional data that 3d printers can read.
 

Software Technology
ideCAD professional software team made able to work with more than one software at the same time with 64 bit software, and with advanced software techniques to detect object allows to create your projects fast modeling and visualization.
