Full range of architectural primitives
With smart components for common architectural entities such as walls, doors and windows, Teigha Architecture provides the building blocks for sophisticated architectural design applications.
Smart architectural objects
Supply accuracy and cohesion with smart architectural custom objects. Walls, doors, windows and other elements can be anchored to each other and dynamically linked with project documents and specifications to react accordingly to any design changes and to update project documentation.
Space calculation feature provides an efficient way to organize reports, analyze energy requirements, and calculate construction and operation costs using special 2D and 3D architectural objects – spaces – that contain spatial information such as floor area and volume.
Associative and non-associative objects
Associative dimensions automatically update their measurement values, positions and orientations when associated objects are modified. Likewise, spaces and areas update when certain elements are changed so calculations such as square footage are always accurate. Teigha Architecture also provides the ability to create non-associative spaces with user-defined geometry. Although these stand alone in a drawing, they can also be used to generate calculations.
With Teigha Architecture your application can:
Enhance workflow to create complete building models
Teigha Architecture provides the functionality that is required for architectural work. Architectural primitives such as walls, doors, windows and stairways can be loaded, created and manipulated as intelligent objects in dynamic relationship with each other.
Create model presentations
With section and elevation functionality, Teigha Architecture makes it easy to create comprehensive presentations of a building model. Section and elevation objects are dynamically linked to the building model, so any model changes are automatically reflected in all related sections.
Support area calculation standards
Providing the space calculation feature, Teigha Architecture enables calculating the offsets of space boundaries according to an area calculation standard defined for a drawing. Area calculation standards usually contain country or organization specific rules by which space boundaries must be set up. Standards are based on the rules of DIN 277 (Germany), BOMA (United States), and SIS (Sweden).
Create model documentation
Teigha Architecture also provides schedule tables and property sets to create model specifications automatically. Architectural objects can be linked to schedules, so they automatically reflect any design changes.
