On Tuesday, 9th November 2010, Chapter has organized a product talk on “ArchiCAD Roadshow 2010” held at PAM auditorium. The talk started at 9.30am and ended at 5.30pm and was attended by 20 participants including architects and graduate members.
In this session, the speaker, Mr. Andrew Lim the Director of Graphisoft (Malaysia) Sdn Bhd greeted everyone and introduced himself and the invited ArchiClub member from Finland. The speaker introduced ArchiCAD 14 which popular for Architecture. These products are really useful for architect in designing a new building and plan.
ArchiCAD users have the opportunity to experience the new version of product that is faster, better and more refined than its predecessor. According to speaker, this product can specify the element class in the element settings and this indicates to the other program; in conjunction with IFC data transfer, what the building part type concerned is. Three settings have been added to the construction element setting menu.
IFC element type specifies whether and element is a wall, a slab or a window etc. This enables the user to select only a part of a more extensive model needed by the recipient or to send only the one floor of a model that is needed. This makes data transfer easier, as it eliminates the need to send the entire model every time data is exchange.
The talk ended after the AcrhiClub meeting with all ArchiCAD users and big thanks to Mr. Andrew Lim for presenting an interesting talk.
