ARCHICAD 21 introduces a flexible way to classify elements and spaces for better support of national or company standards and for unprecedented interoperability between project stakeholders.
Classifications for construction elements or zones can be handled in a centralized way within the scope of the project using the new Classification Manager function.
Element classification can be defined; its related properties can be set and transferred between projects via XML file format.
IFC hotlinks can be placed into the design as many times as needed. In case of large projects the Model Filter option can be used to narrow the display of the referenced IFC content.
These IFC modules can be easily updated ensuring streamlined roundtrip collaboration with engineers. Collision detection works for hotlinked IFC module elements too.
