ArCADiasoft came into being in Łódź in mid-1997. Its founder Jarosław Chudzik has obtained his MSc degree in Construction from Łódź University of Technology.
Shortly after his graduation, Jarosław Chudzik moved to Germany and started a traineeship at Institut für Baumechanik und Numerische Mechanik (Universität Hannover) under professor Erwin Stein, with the intention of writing his doctoral thesis. Tempted by an offer from mb programme, one of the biggest German IT companies dealing in the field of construction engineering, which was searching for a construction engineer with the knowledge of computer programming languages at that time, he started working in the Software Development department. After 10 years, he returned to Poland and made use of the experience gained in Germany in order to found a company, which turned out to rapidly achieve financial success. It later allowed for the creation of the comprehensive, object-oriented ArCADia BIM system – the company’s flagship product that enables various designers to cooperate among their locations.
ArCADiasoft Chudzik sp. j. is the biggest Polish manufacturer of software for building engineering. Its programs are sold in Poland, as well as in Austria, Brasil, Bulgaria, Croatia,
Finland, Germany, Ghana, Indie, Italy, Malaysia, Nigeria, Russia the UK and Turkey.
The programs are written in the BIM technology and they include modules for architecture, constructions and installations. The company has got its own distribution network and uses it to sell its author’s programs and also other manufacturers’ programs, such as IntelliCAD, whose distribution is allowed by membership in the IntelliCAD Technology Consortium, and ArCon, among others.
ArCADiasoft also produces programs on request, and specialises in writing software for building engineering, while applying its IT expertise. We have cooperated with companies such as: Henkel, BALMA, PAROC, Sanitec and Saint-Gobain.
ArCADiasoft equals +22 years of experience in creating computer applications for the construction industry and more than 100 products for architects and engineers. Our programs range from structural design to interior and installation design to energy performance of buildings calculations to buildings’ surroundings design. ArCADiasoft is the author of the ArCADia BIM system.
This whole huge -50% promotion until

The flagship of the Company’s offer is the object-oriented ArCADia BIM system. It is a user-friendly tool for comprehensive calculation/graphics support of a building engineering design process, which allows communication between individual fields, including collision detecting
ArCADia BIM 12
Work in a CAD environment using BIM tools.
Object drawing, quick documentation creation.
The emergence of the ArCADia BIM system is a logical consequence of the ArCADiasoft philosophy to meet the needs of designers at all stages of project development. The system intelligently supports and coordinates all participants throughout the design process in line with BIM (Building Information Modeling) technology while creating a comprehensive building information database. It provides complete control and security at all stages of design while streamlining and accelerating implementation.
Floating data input window at cursor (not in ArCADia LT version)
Tutorial videos available at command icons. (not in ArCADia LT version yet)
Creating a three-dimensional CAD project (not in ArCADia LT version)
Defining the level of detail for individual views.
Animated object library.
Sun animation and scene cloud cover selection in the advanced 3D view mode.
Option to save the project tour from the advanced 3D view mode in the mp4 format.
PBR texture library, where own surfaces can be defined and saved for use in subsequent projects.
New auxiliary options (vertical, horizontal, parallel lines etc.) placed in a special group (on their own layer) and easily accessible from the left toolbar.
New options for measuring length, area and perimeter.
New option of inserting a single wall by an edge.
Today, ArCADia BIM is more than twenty industry-specific modules. These include installation solutions for water, sewage, electricity, heating, etc., and programs intended for engineers to construct and calculate. These programs use a common database of objects (buildings), enable full cooperation between the various industries and the exchange of information and projects within and outside the system. ArCADia applications have IFC format support, which allows the user to collaborate with other programs such as Allplan, Archicad, or Revit.
Software based on a well-known and developed for many years CAD platform, which guarantees full compliance with the DWG format.
The first Polish software for the construction industry allowing the designer to work in accordance with BIM technology.
Software that uses many solutions that significantly accelerate design work in the construction industry. By using objects such as a multilayer wall, doors or windows, the user can quickly create CAD drawings, without losing anything from the full compatibility of the project with the DWG format.
The ArCADia program ends Autodesk's monopoly on the market of CAD programs, bringing to an end unjustified overpricing and proving that a program with high quality and functionality can be available at a price which is corresponding to the capabilities of each designer.
ArCADia software features:
Support BIM technology, object-oriented architectural design.
Ready-made architectural elements: multilayer walls, stairs, bases, columns, chimneys, windows and doors.
Comparing and merging documents.
Automatic floor entry, additional support for Teriva ceiling design.
Drawing of flat and spatial technical documentation and its writing to the native DWG format characteristic of most CAD applications.
Work on layered drawing with the ability to use groups, blocks, external references and raster backdrops.
Precise drawing with the ability to use Cartesian and polar coordinates, characteristic points and tracking.
Work on a real-world model with the ability to print at any scale on a specified sheet of paper.
Supporting the IFC format. A possibility to exchange design data with other programs.
