Remote Learning: ARCHICAD Interoperability Workflow

August 16 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Best Practices for Design Teams Using ARCHICAD & Revit

Architectural collaboration between ARCHICAD users and Revit users poses challenges different from traditional 2D CAD collaboration. As with most design process challenges, it is important to “Start with the end in mind.” Therefore, the course will start with a focus on reasonable expectations for architectural BIM collaboration workflows.

In small projects, it may be feasible to use one design tool. But the larger the project, the more stakeholders and disciplines are involved, so one tool becomes less likely to be the best for everyone, and interoperability workflows become essential.

In this remote learning course, we will: 

  • Look at a case study of a very large development project will be presented to show Open BIM successfully applied to collaborative design on a large scale.
  • Explore three technologies for data exchange and how they may be combined to optimize quality and efficiency in collaborative design. This will include IFC, DWG, and direct translation of RVT format from ARCHICAD.
  • Show the translation options in ARCHICAD and Revit and look at how translated elements look and behave in each platform.

Learning Objectives

By the end of this session, attendees will know:

  • What content is in an IFC architectural exchange.
  • What can be expected from direct RVT exchanges between ARCHICAD and Revit.
  • How and why to create subsets of the BIM IFC export for targeted exchanges or to speed up Revit’s import translation.
  • What content needs to be exchanged in 2D format.
  • How to leverage the strengths of each type of exchange to optimize the results.
