Although drawing data handling is not compulsory, and in many cases it may result in too much work and costs, for example, in the case of warehouses or buildings to be demolished, in most cases it offers many advantages for users. Drawing data handling is very convenient, and it ensures safe and fast work for users dealing with facility management, for example, when planning where the individual employees will sit in an office block, or when planning a move, or in the case of the graphic listing of offices available for rental.
The ArchiCAD integration of the archifm.net functions is so strong that all facility management functions appear in ArchiCAD’s own menus, and when viewed by the user this activity will be an organic part of ArchiCAD. The data can be modified on both functional sides, all data changes are realized both in the drawing and in the database at the same time.
OrthoGraph can provide its BIM model for several different uses at the same time. This not only reduces the cost of creating different building documentations for different purposes, but also ensures that every system, every decision is based on the same central documentation. If there is a change in it due to a refurbishment or a repair that is just finished, it will instantly be reflected in OrthoGraph’s BIM model and all external systems will be notified about the change.
The integration must be effective and seamless. This means OrthoGraph’s BIM model can be accessed through its API to gather all information of the BIM model for any purposes and if there is any change, OrthoGraph will list only the changes to easily update connected systems with only the relevant information.
