The future of cooperation in construction
BIM (Building Information Modeling) is the contemporary working method for planning and implementation of building projects. Exchange of BIM-models (format IFC) between all parties will become mandatory in public projects sooner or later. This process is already advanced farther in other countries.
The essential data model for exchange between different software applications is IFC. Therefore, this interface has been expanded comprehensively in Dietrich's and optimised to your current and future needs.
The import of an IFC-file, no matter the software, automatically delivers the complete building structure and building elements in Dietrich's (wall, ceiling, roof). These are used directly and may be processed further with all program functions. Even roof centring is generated completely in the scope of the program and will be available in full right after the import.
When importing, the properties of the elements (structures wall/ceiling/roof, windows and doors, installation elements) are recognised and can be interpreted and documented with own settings. This way, the important elements will already have the desired versions and properties without any further rework. You can start to work on the design right away. . This comprehensive import not only enables you as a Dietrich's user to easily process IFC models, but also to bring them into the desired form just be reading them in. Most building values will be input automatically.
