Imports objects from an architectural model saved as an IFC file. Imported objects can be displayed as a 3D background layer or can be converted to a native model by assigning materials, cross-sections etc. to them. Existing architectural models are always overwritten by the new one. You can import object based architectural models from ArchiCAD, AutoDesk Architectural Desktop, Revit Structure, Revit Building Nemetscheck Allplan, Bocad and Tekla Structures Programs. Importing IFC files can extract the static model (if available) or the architectural objects overwriting or updating the existing information within the AxisVM model.
Imports a geometry mesh from a DXF file (drawing interchange file) exported in AutoCAD 12, 13, 14 and 2000 format into AxisVM. The layers of the imported file are loaded into the Layer Manager.
You can import object models from Tekla Structures Programs.
Imports a model from an existing AxisVM file into AxisVM, and merges it with the current model.
Reads the triangular mesh describing the surface of a model from a file in STL format (binary or text). Multiple nodes and degenerated triangles are filtered out. Import can be transferred to a background layer as well.
Opens a data file created by Bocad steel construction software (*.sc1) and imports beam cross-sections and geometry.
Imports *.geo files exported by Glaser -isb cad- describing beam or surface models.
Imports a file exported in Steel Detailing Neutral Format used in data exchange between steel detailing programs.
