The model viewer for your architectural designs: Solibri

VisualARQ integrates IFC export to share models with other AEC applications

VisualARQ bets for Rhino for the design and generation of documentation for parametric and freeform architecture. If you want to combine their varied possibilities with other programs, you need a common language and a file viewer.

IFC is the most common format and it is included in many developers’ software. You can transfer files with .IFC extension painlessly between your architectural software.

When you work on a project, you exchange information with others: collaborators, partners, contractors or anyone assisting in any phase of the project. And, of course, not everyone will have the same software installed because the suppliers of materials or services use the software they believe is the most suitable to their activity. Here lies the real advantage of IFC, the fact the flow of information and the work on models are truly collaborative. It is a smooth and simple way of working, without errors or confusions that could result in delays or extra costs. You don’t need to interpret a design, you simply have to look at it.

Since your models will be used by different people for different purposes, how can these people properly view them? Thanks to Solibri Model Viewer and its seamless integration with BIM.

We at VisualARQ have tested Solibri and have included the process in our Youtube video channel. As you will see, it is very simple: it just takes 1 step to export a .IFC file from Rhino and VisualARQ to Solibri Model Viewer.

How to export a Rhino model to Archicad using IFC

Do you jump from software to software because you are restless by nature?

We are sure that this gives you great satisfaction, but also major complications. We won’t try to convince you to settle down and be faithful to one specific program, but at least we are giving you a trick so that your playfulness won’t put you into trouble.

On our YouTube channel, you will find a new video explaining how to export files from Rhino to Archicad using IFC files.

Do you have a model containing walls, windows or other objects created with VisualARQ? And polysurfaces in Rhino?

It’s very easy: each floor information can be exported to an IFC file, which you can then open from Archicad.

VisualARQ objects will keep their properties. You can edit them or unlock the layers you wish.

Check the following step-by-step video to see how this works in 3 minutes:
