How and when do we use architectural objects and 2D graphical elements in a BIM software for architectural design?

Any architectural design using a BIM software is accomplished by inserting and editing typical architectural objects based on a 2D and/or 3D input. The objects used in the design are instantly reproduced in all views and can always be modified from any view. 2D and 3D views are always automatically updated to create, with just a single input process, 2D detailed planimetric and 3D realistic views of our projects.
Designing in 2D plan view or in 3D directly with specific objects allows you to get extremely precise and highly professional results quickly and easily.
3D design allows you to edit building elements in their natural environment, and make use of the surrounding existing elements and their geometry during 3D modelling.

Let’s take a look at how the various architectural objects and 2D graphical elements are used in the Edificius architectural BIM design software by ACCA software

Edificius incorporates a multitude of smart objects that the user can take advantage of when designing Buildings using the BIM philosophy.

The BIM Objects Library contains tens of thousands of free resources (Textures, CAD Blocks, 3D Models, etc) to help you design better and without all the hastle of bneeding to find objects and models all over the internet. You can download all of the resources you need and even share your own creations online.
