With BIM implementation, the software links data and information to the 3D model of the building.
ACCA Software can be used for 3D Architectural BIM, Landscape and Interior Design, Cost Estimating and Project Scheduling. With artificial intelligence you can produce real-time 3D renderings and Photo-realistic renderings, with access to a growing library of architectural objects such as furniture, textures, and materials amongst others. Starting from the design phase,
“Edificius enhances collaboration with different disciplines within the Architecture, Engineering, and Construction industry. It communicates with and transfers information efficiently between construction professionals.
