One-click link designed to help achieve higher design quality earlier in the process
Solibri has released a new version of its ArchiCAD link extension which allows fast BIM updates and the use of Solibri Model Checker (SMC) while working in a real-time design scenario.
With this integration, ArchiCAD users can access Solibri’s Quality Control features without having to save files and upload back and forth between the programs.
Once the link is installed, an SMC icon is added to the main menu bar in ArchiCAD. With a few clicks, the user can export the BIM model into SMC. From there, the user can highlight model elements and have them replicated in both solutions. If design faults are found by SMC, the same elements can easily be selected in ArchiCAD for corrections to be made.
SMC also allows the user to find the component and see the properties of any element selected in ArchiCAD. These properties include location, quantities, profile, relations and property sets. The user can also select what components to export by layers or by floors.
Solibri ArchiCAD Link supports ArchiCAD versions 16–22.
