ELITECAD AR14 introduces consistent and intelligent renovation planning in 2D as well as 3D. Visualisation of the states demolition, existing and construction can be freely configured from the 3D model all the way to the plans. All project states exist at all times and can be displayed simply with a mouse click. Classification is based on components, therefore avoiding the use of layers for instance.
Numerous construction functions make use of these states and automatically complete previously manual tasks (e.g. closing of a wall opening after marking a window for demolition), saving precious working time. More information in the model leads to more security. Automatic dimensioning for instance is only concerned with meaningful combinations of renovation states.
Plan views, views and sections naturally take those states into consideration as well and therefore provide standardized representation of renovation projects without any additional effort. The fully integrated renovation planning in ELITECAD not only supports the user in 3D modelling and layouting, but also in the calculation of dimensions and quantities as well as the creation of reports from the various project states.
The BIM process ensures correct passing of status information via interfaces. Visualisation in a VR environment shows the life cycle of a building in an impressive way. Nowadays already more than half of all building projects are renovation planning projects. A direct comparison between before and after is probably the best way to make decisions for saving money. The technology of virtual renovation planning – the ELITECAD time machine – provides the best possible support for this type of projects. Easy to use and a high level of detail.
