Step 1: Design now with VisualARQ for Rhino

Start designing a BIM 3D model by using VisualARQ: Flexible BIM for Rhino
You can have a look at this wide range of learning materials from VisualARQ here: visualarq.com/learn

Check out this tutorial below that takes you through design, step by step.

Step 2: Export from VisualARQ

If you already have an IFC model created with VisualARQ you can then export by selecting File/Save As and choosing IFC 2x3 Building Model.
IMPORTANT: Make sure you have 'Save textures' selected before saving.

Step 3: Create new Project

Go to your Parametricos account and select Projects. Select a project or create a new one.

Step 4: Single Project or Masterplan?

After selecting a project navigate to Models tab and click on the bottom right + button and add a new model inside the project.

Create several models on a selected site by selecting each projects origin point.

Step 5: Model Matrix

We automatically create a model matrix with Types and Phases you can change in the Settings tab and adapt to your own custom one.

Step 6: Upload

Select your exported model from VisualARQ and upload it on the appropriate place on the model matrix.

Step 7: Processing

Wait until your model is uploaded and processed

Step 8: 3D BIM Viewer

View your 3D BIM IFC model in 3D with all it's layers.

Step 8: Dive into your BIM model on Site

Select any element from your IFC file on the left and isolate it. Any selected element will show the parameters that are embedded inside it.

With simple mouse controls you can navigate inside and out of your model and select any element from the tree panel on the left.

Change the surrounding view style and see how well your design fits into its context in the accurate project site, BIM and GIS style.

More information about VisualARQ.
Reference: VisualARQ Website (visualarq.com)

VisualARQ provides tools to generate all project document information (plans, sections, elevations) and quantification (surfaces, dimensions, components, quantities) from the 3D model automatically.

VisualARQ imports & exports IFC files to exchange architectural BIM models between Rhino and other AEC software. You can also tag any object with an ifc category and add custom information to geometry, which will be exported as ifc properties.

VisualARQ has a library set of parametric architectural objects (walls, windows, doors, stairs...) that can be also created from Grasshopper definitions, providing unlimited options for parametric BIM object designs.

All VisualARQ objects and information assignment can be created from Grasshopper with the VisualARQ Grasshopper Components.
