“CYPE Architecture” has been developed with the aim of surpassing the modelling powers of IFC Builder, with a considerable improvement in this through a new 3D work environment without geometric restrictions and greater modelling capacities that contemplate the conceptual design phase of the project.
“CYPE Architecture”, like its predecessor IFC Builder, is a free application.
In the creation of the CYPE Architecture program, two fundamental phases have been taken into account when developing a project digitally: the architectural design process and the 3D/BIM modelling process. The aim has been to adopt tools from both traditional modelling (surfaces, edges, intersections, extrusions, curves, etc) and from the new BIM modelling (walls, slabs, roofs, columns, etc), which combined allow the user to easily move from the conceptual to the architectural.
CYPE Architecture includes new architectural elements such as: curtain walls, louvres, roof tiles, screed to falls, beams, curved ramps and swimming pools, and offers more detail in elements like doors, windows, skylights and guardrails.
In addition, “CYPE Architecture” is an umbrella program for other modules developed by CYPE such as: Open BIM Vertical Connections, Open BIM Suspended Ceilings, Open BIM Office Furniture, Open BIM Residential Furniture and Open BIM Water Equipment.
