ideYAPI / ideCAD

Move forward with the power of teamwork!

The IDS (Integrated Design System) eliminates the hassle of paperwork and ensures full compatibility between ideCAD® Architecture and ideCAD Structural. Thus, architects and engineers collaborate on the same platform. Both parts make drawings or calculations of their own discipline and all information is collected in a common file. With the common database, changes made in one place are automatically reflected to other places, so there is no inconsistency between the projects, the loss of time and the risk of errors are minimized.

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".

ideCAD® Wrep

IdeCAD® Wrep, which enables the review of projects prepared with ideCAD products, the preparation of 2D editing and detail drawings and drawing from the plotter, enables engineers and architects to present their projects to their customers. Customers can easily review and share their ideas with ideCAD® Wrep without the need to purchase the program. IdeCAD® Wrep, which has 2d drawing possibilities of ideCAD products, is distributed free of charge and can be downloaded free of charge from the internet.

IdeCAD® Wrep also has drawing tools that is same as other line-oriented CAD programs, so you can draw from scratch or start to draw from beginning. By using these tools, you can create your detail and manufacturing drawings in a single program without having to work with traditional programs. ideCAD® Architectural projects can be opened also with ideCAD® Wrep, you can take sections and views, make detailing and make them ready for output.
