The general overview of progeCAD Architecture

A Brief Overview of progeCAD Architecture

BIM Applicaton with Full 2x3 IFC Compatibilty even for composed building objects (roofs, ramps etc.)

Architectural Modeling
progeCAD Architecture enables direct work on a 3D building model manipulating architectural objects and elements just like "plastic" objects, freely shaping them in real time. This approach is valid not only for simple building objects but also for the composite ones, since their structure follows a synergistic BIM logic. The software allows to realize your most complicated design ideas in an easy and fast way.

High Quality Rendering
PhotoPRO lets you create high quality photorealistic images thanks to the fast OpenGL algorithms and the state-of-the-art ray-tracing technology. Every object already embeds materials and textures within its editable attributes, so the only thing for you to get a high-quality real representation is a mouse click.

Live walkthrough
WalkPRO allows to set up a real-time virtual tour around your 3D photorealistic model, walking indoor and outdoor of your building and using  such options  as "staircases to ascend", "doors to open" etc.  In addition, it is possible to create .avi video files just clicking on the “record” button to create a video presentation of your project.

Composite Elements & Structures
progeCAD Architecture includes a set of sophisticated dialogs and modelers to create slabs, staircases, roofs, rails and vertical or horizontal elements of any type and shape. Dynamic shaping and editing of any composite element is performed through the progeCAD Architecture parametric dialogs which cover practically every construction case. The parametric behavior of all these structures enables to  change or adjust most of their properties at any time of your design process. Using these BIM tools, you can quickly evaluate alternative design solutions and discover the most desirable ones.

progeCAD Architecture also provides:

  •     Dialog boxes to define and shape beams, columns, slabs and other structural elements
  •     The Staircase modeler to generate even the most complex shapes of staircases as well as their parts and accessories.
  •     The Roof modeler with unlimited options to design any type of roof structure and add such components as attics, lofts, skylights, inclined openings and others.
  •     Dialogs for vertical elements, gables, ramps, rails and other more specific building elements such as chimneys and pergolas.

Apart from the Parametric Library Generators used to create e.g. openings, shutters etc., progeCAD Architecture also includes a large number of items (objects, accessories, symbols)  grouped into thematic libraries (Living Room Furniture, Dining Room Furniture, Kitchen Furniture, Office Furniture, Equipment, Plants etc.). Furthermore, the Dynamic Library Editor allows to define and create new libraries, edit existing items  or even upload dwg drawings and convert them into library items.

Topographic Component
progeCAD Architecture embeds the complete Topographic component including a group of smart commands for a quick and accurate creation of topographic plans and for an automatic generation of 3D ground models.

BIM Alternative

progeCAD Architecture is an affordable BIM package to create building models exchangeable across other BIM software platforms through the IFC 2x3 file format. Unlike traditional sophisticated BIM packages, progeCAD Architecture offers an easier approach to digital building modeling and, in addition, the capabilities of generic DWG CAD drafting.

High Compatibility

progeCAD Architecture works directly in DWG ensuring complete compatibility with AutoCAD® WITHOUT ANY FILE CONVERSION and without losing any critical information. Support for the IFC 2x3 file format enables interoperability within the AEC /FM industry and smooth product model data exchange with other BIM software such as Autodesk Revit®, AchiCAD®, Allplan® etc.
