ArCADiasoft (formerly INTERsoft) 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, 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.
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
ArCADiasoft IntelliCAD 10
IntelliCAD is a breakthrough version of the CAD software for creating 2D and 3D technical documentation, which has been in existence for years. It has powerful tools for precise drawing. The new graphics interface ensures intuitive work and does not interfere in the CAD designer’s habits. The software has a wide range of features for saving and loading DWG files, from the oldest 2.5 version to the currently latest DWG 2013 format.
IntelliCAD works with numerous volumes, such as: StalCAD, ŻelbetCAD, InstalCAD, PRZEDMIAR, including modules of the ArCADia system for creating a comprehensive BIM model.
Working on layers, command line, full setting personalization (commands, toolbars, shortcuts and aliases, the option to import lines, hatching and dimensioning styles are the basic features of the software. Moreover, it allows the development and modification of 2D and 3D documentation, loading raster bases (BMP, JPG, TIF and PNG), description with TrueType or SHX fonts, linear and angular dimensioning with style recording, saving and handling solids (also with attributes), loading applications saved in LISP and SDS. There is an option to work with textures, lighting and to create renderings in 3D documents.
Creating 2D and 3D drawings by drawing and complete modification of all elements.
The possibility to read ACIS solids (without the ability to create and fully edit).
The option of photo-realistic visualization and rendering New drawing option with Multilines.
Reading and editing bitmap images (e.g. geodesic backgrounds) such as: JPG, TIF, BMP, GIF and PNG files.
Insertion and definition of libraries of symbols, blocks, simple and complex texts (SHX and True Type fonts).
Dimensioning assigned to items: line and angle, the possibility to create user styles.
Precise printing by defining all print parameters.
Automatic measuring of distances, areas and the setting of coordinates.
Exporting to PDF files.
Exporting to STL files.
A wide range of hatching styles.
Direct access to help for programmers from the help menu.
Direct access to the user manual from the help menu.
Support for visual styles.
Extensive dimension styles.
The paper space handles non-square views.
The possibility to display print styles in the paper space.
Support for combined dimensioning.
Support for relative paths for images and external links.
Improved handling of blocks, views, dimensions and text styles.
Multiple windows can be opened with various views and layout.
HANDLING OF DWG FORMAT
IntelliCAD handles the DWG format without any conversion, that is drawings produced in AutoCAD are read and saved without any distortions.
Reading and saving drawings in AutoCAD format from 2.5 to 2013.
Drawing in the hidden lines and shading mode in real time.
