Trelligence is designed to 'inform the designer, without forcing the design programming onto the designer.'
Affinity w/ ArchiCAD Integration
Affinity software is available with bi-directional integration with ArchiCAD 15 - 17 (32- & 64-bit). This interoperability is made possible through a fully integrated plug-in that allows project teams to use Affinity software’s program modeling & design validation analysis tools from within Graphisoft’s leading BIM software tool, ArchiCAD.
Architectural project files can be shared between Affinity and ArchiCAD, so project teams can start in either product and continue to synchronize the updates to the project files as necessary. For the architect, designer or builder who wants to continue tracking the progress of the design against the original program requirements, Affinity w/ ArchiCAD integration is an ideal design software tool.
Affinity is a flexible software tool that enables users to begin anywhere in the programming & design process. Whether starting with an ArchiCAD model that requires programming information & analysis in Affinity, or starting with a program in Affinity and continuing the detailed design in ArchiCAD, Affinity w/ ArchiCAD integration is able to meet your needs. While the bi-directional interoperability means that no linear process is requried, our Trelligence support & consulting team can recommend best practices to your firm based on your current process and desired goals. Here is some of what is possible when using Affinity in conjunction with ArchiCAD:
Combine Affinity & ArchiCAD Data for Design Validation Analysis
Scenario: A Project Team has Program Modeling information in Affinity and a Design in ArchiCAD.
Goal: Combine the program model & data in Affinity with the design in ArchiCAD and run analyses to ensure the design meets the program requirements.
1. Load ArchiCAD design into Affinity
Start with Affinity Program then Create ArchiCAD Design
Scenario: A Project Team starts with Affinity as its Program Modeling tool, builds a schematic design in Affinity, then starts a new ArchiCAD project for the detailed design.
Goal: Ensure the program information is complete, and initial schematic designs are run & finalized prior to entering the detailed design phase. Continue synchronization with ArchiCAD to ensure design validation.
1. Enter program information in Affinity
Reporting with Affinity
Scenario: Project Team uses Affinity with ArchiCAD integration and wants to report on the progress of the project for clients.
Goal: Easily create custom, professional reports for clients
1. Synchronize the Affinity & ArchiCAD files
