IDAC to Launch Eurocode and BIM Analysis Software

Share Article

InterCAD Kft has appointed IDAC as the UK distributor for AxisVM FEA software. This software product incorporates the latest UK/Eurocode building standards and is fully BIM enabled. Small to medium engineering consultancies for the built environment will gain competance and competivitiveness.

The demonstrated ability of IDAC to assist UK engineers to address advanced engineering analysis projects will allow the new AxisVM users to achieve the competitive advantages that both Eurocode and BIM changes will encourage.

InterCAD Kft and Integrated Design and Analysis Consultants Ltd (IDAC) have announced an agreement for the distribution of AxisVM, a broad platform software for modeling, analysis, and design of structures for the built environment.

AxisVM software is used by thousands of structural engineers in forty countries and offers the user fast and easy modeling and analysis capability for most applications. AxisVM has implemented the UK version of the structural Eurocodes for concrete, steel and timber materials. The growing requirements in the UK for software that is compatible with building information modeling (BIM) platforms is provided through interfaces to Tekla and Graphisoft software products, as well as the IAI (International Alliance for Interoperability) IFC standards.

"This software answers the needs for most UK structural engineers to easily adopt Eurocode and BIM modeling, with no burdensome and costly start-up implementations. Customers can adapt their legacy software files and start using AxisVM from the beginning," says David Ellis, Managing Director of IDAC. "The suitability of AxisVM for small and medium size engineering consultancies is the principal reason why IDAC has determined to launch this software in the UK."

"The capability of IDAC to assist engineers to make a quick and effective start-up to address the Eurocode changes to the UK building standards will allow the new AxisVM user a distinct advantage. IDAC can show how most projects can be started and completed by individual engineers or teams using the visual modeling features featured in AxisVM," comments Greg Hoback, InterCAD's international director of marketing. "The demonstrated ability of IDAC to assist UK engineers to address advanced engineering analysis projects will allow the new AxisVM users to achieve the competitive advantages that both Eurocode and BIM changes will encourage."

About InterCAD:
InterCAD Kft, a European software developer with engineering users in forty countries, has been producing AxisVM FEA software since 1991. This software includes many features that expand the capability for mechanical and structural engineers to analyze the behavior of designs.

Direct object modeling speeds up and enhances accuracy of the structural model. Users can create, save and reuse component parts that can include complex, composite elements such as elevator shafts, mechanical cantilevers, custom fabricated joints and more.
AxisVM mechanical and building engineer users can make 2D or 3D models from its graphic CAD modeler or import files from almost every CAD software in IFC, DXF, CIS/2 or DWG formats.

Models designed have no size limitation, include steel, wood, concrete or aluminum materials and cross sections, can be printed and saved, exported to BIM software users as IFC files, and dynamically linked to the tables, documents or images created by any other software program.
AxisVM is available in French, English, German, Italian, Dutch, Romanian, Spanish, Portuguese, Serbian and Hungarian languages.
