BIM Data

An ARCHICAD model can be described as a central BIM database that stores all project data and makes it accessible to any project stakeholder. Previous ARCHICAD versions have provided a fixed set of Element Classifications, but ARCHICAD 21 introduces a flexible way to classify elements according to any national or company standard classification system and makes available ARCHICAD Properties that can be connected to any construction element or zone, based on any Element Classification.

BIM Content packages

ARCHICAD enables the one-step import of BIM data that have been predefined in an external ARCHICAD file (PLN, PLA or TPL format). With the Import BIM Content function, you can import the following BIM Content to your ARCHICAD project:

  • A Classification System
  • Any Properties belonging to that Classification System
  • The IFC Translator “Mapping” presets based on that Classification System:
    • Type Mapping for IFC Import
    • Type Mapping for IFC Export
    • Property Mapping for IFC Export

If the BIM Content package below contains only the Classification System itself we provide it in XML format. These XML files can be imported in the Classification Manager.

How to use
