Knauf’s just made life a lot easier for Archicad users.
Users of this BIM software solution can now download the Archicad model of any Knauf System directly from Knauf’s online System Selector or K-SPEC Generator without the need to install any add-in to their Archicad software.
Users just need to search for a Knauf system that meets their architectural requirements (e.g. FRL, Rw, Rw + Ctr ratings, etc.) and optionally add a framing design to suit their project specific structural requirements in Knauf’s online System Selector.
Users who have already registered for Knauf’s online K-SPEC Generator can also add the selected Knauf system to their K-SPEC project first. Or they can even create their own Knauf system from scratch or modify an existing system using System Maker. (Read more here.)
In System Selector or the K-SPEC Generator, simply select the required Knauf system and click on the Archicad sub-menu within the BIM menu. This will open a new page – please follow the instructions in the page to download the Archicad Building Information Model (BIM) object.
Knauf allows Archicad user assign their own preferred index number to the composite assembly before downloading the BIM files, which ensures a seamless and effortless integration between Archicad Attributes and Favorites data. Arhicad content generation of a composite assembly like plasterboard walls and ceilings has never been so easy.
Please note that only Archicad 21 and later versions are supported
