Affinity Overview

Trelligence Affinity™ is BIM software focused on enhancing the early architectural design process with a unique programming, space planning and schematic design solution. Targeted at the worldwide architectural, engineering, construction and owner/developer (AECO) market, the Trelligence Affinity patent-pending software integrates with ArchiCAD® from Graphisoft, AECOsim Building Designer from Bentley, Revit® Architecture from Autodesk, SketchUp™ from Google, VE-Gaia and VE- Navigator for LEED® from IES, and other design tools to extend the benefits of building information modeling (BIM) - faster planning, less rework, and better team collaboration - to the early design phases of complex building projects.

Adding Value to the AECO Team

Created for architectural programmers, architects, owner/developers and other AEC professionals, Affinity delivers a comprehensive design validation and analysis tool, built on top of domain-specific knowledge templates. The templates allow the client to easily configure Affinity to fit different types of building projects – from healthcare, to corporate interiors, to education / government institution to science and technology, hospitality and others – ensuring domain knowledge is shared and available to all members of the team.  Clients also use Affinity for early-stage estimating, for assisting with go/no-go assessments, and for early sustainability analysis. With Affinity as an accurate design analysis tool, the entire project team benefits.

Separating Conceptual & Schematic Design from Detailed Design

For many building projects, the early design work is led by team members with a different skill set than the design and CAD/BIM specialists. Moreover, today’s design tools do not offer the ability to capture detailed program requirements such as space adjacencies and abstract constraints. Affinity is an ideal tool for the client-facing architect or engineer who is not an expert in CAD and BIM modeling software. The work done in Affinity can be integrated into the design tools without losing the information recorded in the program and without redrawing the schematic.

Affinity and Affinity BIM Integration Tools

The Trelligence Affinity Suite includes bi-directional integration with ArchiCAD and Revit Architecture. The Affinity model is easily loaded into these BIM tools, providing the designer with real-time access to the Affinity space program and detailed project requirements throughout the design phase. As the design progresses, Affinity provides ongoing analysis of the design's compliance to the program requirements, alerting the designer to program violations, and enabling the design team to make informed decisions - reducing later rework and helping to deliver designs that meet the client's requirements. The Affinity Design Validation module also works with Revit Architecture.

Affinity is compatible with:

    • Revit Architecture 2013 - 2015 (32- & 64-bit)

    • SketchUp Pro 2015

    • ArchiCAD 16 - 18 (32- and 64-bit)

    • Bentley AECOsim Building Designer V8i

    • IES VE-Gaia and VE-Navigator for LEED®

Affinity & CAD Software and Other File Types

Affinity files can be exported as DXF files and imported into the CAD software or estimation tool of your choice.  This allows the design team to seamlessly transition from schematic design to design development without recreating the initial plan.  Other available file types include GBXML, IFC 2x3, SVG, JPG, & CSV.
