Tutorials

Let us explain to you how the world´s most advanced building design platfrom works.

1. Introduction, Dashboard and uploading CAD

In this video we will teach you the platform’s general concepts, our Dashboard, how to manage your projects, and how to upload geometry through a CAD file.

2. Site Planner, Edition, and Design Criteria

In this video we will teach you the tools to move your buildings around and the project’s design criteria for our data based user interface.

3. Breadcrumb, Data Panel and Buildings

In this video we will teach how to move around the project, what information you can find in the data panel and how to customize your buildings.

4. Apartments and Manual Editing

In this video we will teach you how to customize each apartment using the three editing modes: Full Auto, Semi Auto, and Manual Editing.

5. Basement, Estimate and Downloads

In this video we will teach you how to design Basements, how to use the estimate tool and how to generate downloadable files such as XLS, CAD and BIM.

FAQ’s

FAQ’s

I see a message that requires me to use a screen resolution of at least 1920x1080 px. How do I solve it?

This resolution is commonly supported by almost all modern displays and is a minimal requirement. If your screen can support this resolution and the problem persists, we probably have Windows configured with a certain degree of magnification by default. We can check it in the Windows configuration options in the screen section. In case it was more than 100%, we recommend setting it to 100% and trying again.

Do you support topography at the implantation level and associated calculations?

Actualmente la aplicación solo soporta una única cota de implantación para plantas sótano y planta baja en toda la promoción, pero cada planta baja puede tener una altura libre diferente y en consecuencia las cotas de las plantas por encima también pueden ser diferentes en cada edificio de la promoción.

Proyectamos incluir esta funcionalidad próximamente.

Is it possible to define the dimensioning of the facade openings?

Sí, lo podemos definir globalmente para toda la promoción según el uso de la habitación en la cual se encuentre, o manualmente para instancias específicas.

En un futuro planeamos permitir la edición manual por tipología residencial, lo cual incluye dimensionado de aperturas, además de restringir el dimensionado de las aperturas a las restricciones de iluminación y ventilación.

Does ARCHITEChTURES guarantee compliance with regulations?

ARCHITEChTURES permite al usuario generar diseños que cumplen con todos los parámetros que define el diseñador, incluidas normativas, pero la garantía siempre la tiene que ofrecer el propio diseñador. En modo Auto la mayoría de los parámetros que garantizan el cumplimiento de diferentes aspectos normativos se encuentran en la sección de dimensiones mínimas dentro de los criterios de diseño, aunque algunos se encuentran agrupados en apartados más específicos, tales como la sectorización de escaleras que se encuentra en configuración de núcleos dentro de cada edificio.

Aquellos aspectos normativos que no queden resueltos en modo Auto normalmente pueden ser editados en modo Manual. Para aquellos elementos no editables dentro de la aplicación, siempre se podrán editar en BIM o CAD mediante nuestros descargables 100% compatibles con los formatos más usados en el sector: .RVT , .IFC y .DWG.

Do you support split plants at various heights? Or should the whole plant be at the same level?

 

Within the same building the entire floor will always be at the same elevation, but it could be modeled by making the partitions correspond to different joined buildings, with the different manual editing modes the necessary arrangements can be made. As a last resort, for those elements that cannot be edited within the application, they can always be edited in BIM or CAD using our downloadable 100% compatible with the most used formats in the sector: .RVT, .IFC and .DWG.

Is the structure calculated? Is the structure coordinated on residential floors and basement?

The application positions the structure at the level of general fit, and both the structure and the cores are completely coordinated in residential floors and basement in each modification we make in our project. The structure is not calculated or pre-dimensioned, generic 30x30cm pillars are represented assuming a generic case of a reinforced concrete structure.
