POINTCAB 4BIMm (ARCHICAD) PLUGIN

Our plugin for Archicad offers one of the easiest workflows for modeling point clouds in Archicad. Stay in your comfort zone and don’t worry about point cloud data anymore!

In the tutorials below we explain in detail how you can use the individual functions of our Archicad plugin to your advantage. Of course, the quickest way to learn is to work directly in the program.

POINTCAB 4BIMm (ARCHICAD) – AN OVERVIEW

Before we show you how to use our Archicad plugin to model point clouds in Archicad, we would like to give you a brief overview of what your plugin has in store for you.

CREATE FLOOR HEIGHTS IN ARCHICAD

Define all floors in your project in three easy steps with PointCab 4BIMm in ArchiCAD. In the video we present the complete workflow for defining the floors with the help of the semi-automatic vectorization tool. The point cloud remains in PointCab Origins.

CREATE WINDOWS AND DOORS IN ARCHICAD

With the BIMm Tool Plugin, you now have an automated workflow that saves you time when creating various components in your model. With just a few clicks, you can transfer windows and doors to ArchiCAD in real time. See how easy it is in the following video!

CREATE FLOORS AND CEILINGS IN ARCHICAD

You can create floors and ceilings in ArchiCAD without extensive preparation. The point cloud remains in PointCab Origins. You only work with the 3D point tool in PointCab Origins and the corresponding tools provided by the BIMm tool. The BIMm tool takes over the transfer of the correct positions. In just a few minutes, you can create all the floors and ceilings in your CAD model and then move on to the next task.

CREATE COLUMNS AND BEAMS IN ARCHICAD

With a few clicks you can transfer correct 3D information of columns and beams directly, in real time to ArchiCAD. The PointCab 4BIMm plugin enables an efficient and precise workflow. You can measure the strength of each column using PointCab Origins sections and planar views.

CREATE ANY OBJECTS IN ARCHICAD

Transfer all types of components from PointCab Origins to ArchiCAD. The elements take the right position in your model thanks to the connection through the BIMm tool. Depending on the object you need to create, you only need a few clicks to get a correct result in your BIM model.
