4M IDEA and FINE
Intuitive and powerful BIM software for 3D & 2D Architectural design in DWG. IDEA Architecture is an Architectural Software with sophisticated BIM technology. Drawing in 3D with IDEA is even faster and easier than in 2D with other CAD Software.
Our Architectural software is also renown by experts to be the BIM software offering the easiest transition to BIM for AutoCAD® or other CAD software users : you get all the intelligence of BIM but within a very intuitive environment.
Either in 3D or 2D view, IDEA Architecture provides you with intelligent and parametric objects libraries to draw your buildings, houses or interiors : walls, windows, doors, stairs, balconies, roofs… You just have to pick a shape and modify its dimensions.
Editing you 3D project is as easy as a double-click on the element which dimensions you want to modify and/or drag and drop the element to change its position.
