ArchiCAD integrates with AxisVM

30 Mar, 2006

The two programs can now share 3D modeling data via an IFC 2x2 interface.

Graphisoft announced that its 3D building design solution ArchiCAD now can share virtual building model data with Inter-CAD's structural design solution AxisVM. According to the companies, the data connection between the two applications is made via an IFC 2x2 interface. As a result of the integration, users reportedly can transfer the load-bearing elements of the ArchiCAD model directly into AxisVM. Civil engineers and structural designers can run analyses on the imported model or, if necessary, they can modify or redesign the structure with the structural design tools in AxisVM.
