BIM integration with Sketchup®

Edificius provides a dynamic integration feature with Sketchup® to satisfy creativity needs even for the most demanding design tasks. Create 3D solid models of any type and shape for maximum freedom of expression.

Google Maps® Importer

With the Edificius Google Maps® Importer, terrain modeling becomes simple and immediate. Locate the area to be surveyed and with a simple click rebuild the terrain's digital elevation map directly from Google Maps® satellite imagery acquiring the area's precise altitude data.

BIM integration with BLENDER®

Edificius can also integrate the BIM model with BLENDER® too, one of the best solid modeling solutions. Enrich your Edificius project with additional objects modeled using BLENDER® and use its specific features that are comparable to other well-known 3D modeling programs such as 3D Studio Max® and Maya®.

All the advantages of integration You always have full control of your project, from every point of view...

Project timing, costs, other interdisciplinary aspects of the work (structural, energetic, installations). Only with Edificius you have an overall and integrated vision of the entire project

4D BIM / VDC Virtual Design and Construction

4D BIM (gantt): project time management

Edificius offers a "4D-GANTT" environment for integrated project time and sequencing management. By building up a WBS (Work Breakdown Structure), easily break down the project into elementary parts (periods) and connect them to the objects used in the 3D model. Get a complete simulated overview of project progression by enabling the Gantt chart's timeline.

5D BIM Cost Estimating

5D BIM: construction cost estimate directly from the model

With Edificius, construction estimating aspects are fully covered in the most dynamic and flexible way with our PriMus cost estimating solution that reads the metric data directly from the model. Each variation of the architectural model corresponds to a seamless variation in project material quantities and the relating project cost.

BIM and Integrated Design

Integration with other ACCA software solutions

Edificius supports full integration with our ACCA software solutions for structural calculations (EdiLus) and construction cost estimating (PriMus). Compose your suite of programs in the most appropriate combination according to your skills and your needs. Manage the various interdisciplinary aspects of the project and collaborate with other members of the ACCA community.
