ArCADia BIM CAD software system supporting BIM technology.
The origins of the idea behind ArCADia discipline applications system date back to ArCADia-ARCHITECTURE and ArCADia-IntelliCAD 2008 programs, the primary purpose of which was to accelerate the creation of a .dwg drawing. Designed for the construction industry, these programs had no additional discipline modules at that time. However, they were equipped with internal mechanisms as well as additional functions e.g such as the automatic drawing of walls, inserting windows, doors, making of statements, use of an extensive library of .dwg blocks.
The basis for BIM technology is not only the design and work in 3D mode, but the integration of information about the designed structure in the form of a complete, virtual model incorporating not only data concerning the architecture and structure of the building, but all of the discipline-related problems.
Gradually, subsequent BIM supporting applications are being released onto the design software market. Their manufacturers choose various assumptions and paths to create a program consistent with BIM. As a result, in spite of the fact that the purpose of BIM technology was also to standardize the method of design, applications very often differ from one another with regards to interface and method of operation.
