ideCAD Structural 7

Powerful architectural integration thanks to IDS
IDS technology provides structural engineers with a platform for cooperating with architects. This is guaranteed through the compatibility with ideCAD Architectural. Those involved in the project can concentrate on their planning and calculation work; all information is stored in a joint data model. The joint data model for both architectural and static work caters for automatic updating by each member of the individual respective teams. The joint user interface and joint data model prevent time and data losses.

With IDS you do not design a virtual model of your building - you design the building itself. ideCAD Structural and ideCAD Architectural use the same static components. Object properties such as length, width and height are used jointly. The use of real components such as walls, columns, beams, foundations, stairways and ceilings etc. in conjunction with corresponding specific parameters allow for the continual bidirectional modification of your building by architects and civil engineers using a single file without wasting any time. Already working with real components in the architect's planning phase avoids errors and accelerates the design process which is carried out in advance of static calculations.

The integrated visualization technique in ideCAD Structural not only allows for the creation of renderings and animations, but also smooth and simple project planning. Static calculation and reinforced-concrete measurements are carried out on the basis of the three-dimensional calculation model. Furthermore, real-time 3D representation allows for visual control. Compatibility with IFC (Industry Foundation Classes), DXF and DWG creates a basis for working effectively and smoothly, and for the exchange of data with other CAD programs.
