Topocad works with data and objects that are measured, designed, planned, digitized. Topocad version 16 supports IFC-format, which is a format that describes 3D objects with a large number of properties. Topocad 16 offers 3D objects that supports 3D-mesh and 3D parametric objects as well as 3D solids. As for 3D solids, Topocad makes it easier for you to create cubes, spheres, cylinders, tubes, donuts and cones in 3D.
Designing and creating BIM objects in Topocad takes place in different ways. For example, surveys can directly create BIM objects. Measurement of curbs, pipes, walls, facades, terraces, wells, lampposts, railings, columns and more are made directly from total stations or GPS, which after calculation creates 3D BIM objects.
Import of IFC creates complete 3D objects. All BIM objects in Topocad are just like other objects and can therefore be used for quantification, visualization, stake out and machine guidance.
Topocad 16 and future versions supports BIM.
