Hans Lif, CAD and IT Manager, SWECO Theorells AB, Sweden:
“MagiCAD is IFC-compatible and is well suited to the entire BIM philosophy. The room model can be used via IFC directly, e.g. in the Sweco Theorells climate simulation program. This will be the way everyone works in the future. A universal information model – BIM – storing information from all parties. For us, MagiCAD Room is the perfect tool for creating and defining a building model. We can use the same information throughout the process, thereby limiting possible errors between stages. Simplicity and flexibility are key benefits, as well as the opportunity to try out different design concepts at an early stage.
We use MagiCAD right from preliminary studies all the way through to completion of the building. With the help of IFC Export and our climate simulation program, we are able to perform detailed calculations of heating and air conditioning requirements all year round. We can also simulate the ventilation system and perform LCC calculations for the lifespan of the building.”
