IDEA Architecture

Building information modeling (BIM) software

About IDEA Architecture

IDEA Architecture is a building information modeling (BIM) software designed to help organizations create 2D and 3D architectural designs and manage rendering, animation, 4D scheduling, 5D costing, and other operations. The application enables users to modify different BIM entities like length, width, and angle of beams, roofs, walls and stairs, rotation in gables, and more via a unified portal.

IDEA Architecture includes real-time OpenGL rendering functionality, which allows designers to render, view, and browse projects while rotating, modifying, or moving the elements. It offers various features such as annotations, real-time zoom, orthophoto maps, design preview, notifications manager, data import and export, protected files, and more. Teams can also convert 3D objects into vectors, edit DWG drawings and share 2D or 3D files with other users.

IDEA Architecture includes parametric objects’ libraries, which let users choose and define the material, size, and other attributes of various design elements to produce automated 2D and 3D designs. The platform also allows organizations to export models to generate 360-degree walk-through videos of buildings.

I hope Architecture IDEA get some good marketing on in our field to have better chance to be know by the Architects and customers

Pros

Reliable price compared to Auto CAD that is extremely expensive for a small business like me

Cons

Most clients don't know about IDEA Architecture and they prefer seeing designs on AutoCAD

OK AutoCAD alternative

Reviewed on 2018/04/30

Pros

IT supports DWG files and has adequate functionality. It is reasonably priced and you could run a small practice with it. I don't know that I would recommend it but I don't know that I wouldn't either.

Cons

It is not the industry standard and that would make me nervous. I know AutoCAD is ridiculously expensive but it is what everyone uses.

Before giving a hit here, the free trial is the right thing to begin with, deciding about this kind of software.

Pros

The price is much more acceptable - mostly for smaller sized customers or companies with another primary source of income/business activity

Cons

Lack of some features that are included in (mostly much more expensive) software products like AutoCAD.
