Leading the Way in OPEN BIM
ARCHICAD STAR(T) Edition 2016 supports highly iterative coordination with engineers and consultants and delivers several IFC-related improvements.
STAR(T) 2016 allows users to import the IFC model exactly as it looked in the original application in which it was created: “perfect geometry, minimal attributes.”
IFC Spaces will always be converted to editable ARCHICAD Zones by retaining their original geometries; ability to override materials and representation styles of IFC model elements; IFC data mapping with library part independent GDL parameters; customizable property update function; and faster IFC data handling in IFC Manager.
Collision detection now works with all imported IFC MEP elements as well. Improved collision detection performance makes STAR(T) 2016 a unique BIM authoring tool with full-fledged interdisciplinary coordination capabilities.
