|ArCADia-WATER SUPPLY INSTALLATIONS is an industry-specific module of the ArCADia BIM system, based on the ideology of Building Information Modeling (BIM). The program can be used to create professional technical documentation of internal water supply systems in a building. The program is intended for designers of internal drainage systems.
The program allows the object-oriented insertion of drawing elements on architectural background drawings, including the creation of design diagrams and the generation of three types of axonometric projections. In addition, the program enables the automatic selection of elements, taking account of user preferences (elements are selected from catalogues) and the automatic generation of reports and bills of materials or objects used in the design. Water supply systems can be designed on the plans of buildings produced in the ArCADia-ARCHITECTURE program and designed in a CAD environment in the form of bitmap or vector files. The user can use the library of elements used in water supply systems, which can be extended and adapted to their own needs in the scope of machinery used and pipeline material types. A user template can also be prepared, including the possibility to save personalised default settings for each program element and transfer them together with a design.
The program can be used to verify a designed system in terms of hydraulics and equipment selection.
