Demolish, rebuild, create, compare...
The “Project Group” feature is the advanced work variations and remodelling management tool that automatically integrates two architectural BIM models.
The Architectural objects (walls, windows, floors, etc.) in the “SURVEYED” situation of BIM model are identified as “EXISTING”, while the objects defined from scratch in the “Planned Build” situation are then identified as “NEW”.
Thanks to special “Tools” (demolisher, trowel and magic wand) you can easily mark the elements to demolish or define new architectural elements to be built.
“Project Group” also manages all the information generated by dynamically comparing the existing situation and the planned layout.
The comparison is automatically organised in the drawing model nodes (area plans, floor plans, cross-sections, elevation views, and construction details) for both of the BIM models.
Specific options allow to customize the comparison chart criteria too.
Graphic tables for any type of comparison...
We use the “Project Group” file to obtain the comparison drawing models in Edificius.
On the Edificius Home page, in the “New” section, we'll select the “Project Group” file type and specify the Edificius file that represents the “Current Situation”.
The “Project Group” generates a group file and a copy of the “document” of the “Current Situation” (CS) that becomes the “Design Stage” (DS) “document” from where all remodelling aspects are addressed.
Edificius provides "Tools" such as: demolisher, trowel and magic wand with which you can intervene on architectural objects in the "Design stage". If strictly necessary, you can also intervene on the "Current situation" document.
