Creator of ArCADia BIM, software compatible with Building Information Modeling

ArCADiasoft (formerly INTERsoft) was established in the middle of 1997 in Lodz. Its founder, Jaroslaw Chudzik, received his master's degree in civil engineering from inodz University of Technology. Shortly after his graduation, Jaroslaw Chudzik went to Germany to pursue his doctorate. He received an offer from a large German IT company in the field of civil engineering, in search of a civil engineer with knowledge of computer programming, and started working in the software development department. He returned to Poland after 10 years and started a company using his experience in Germany. The company achieved a financial success in a very short time. He then created the comprehensive, object-oriented ArCADia BIM system, which is the company's flagship product that allows various designers to collaborate between their locations.

ArCADiasoft Chudzik sp. j. It is the largest Polish manufacturer in the field of structural engineering. Programs In addition to Poland from Austria, Brazil, Bulgaria, Croatia, Germany, Ghana, India, Italy, Malaysia, Nigeria, Russia, and Turkey are sold in the UK.

Programs written with BIM technology include modules for architecture, structure and installations. The company sells its own programs and programs from other manufacturers such as IntelliCAD, ArCon, which are members of the IntelliCAD Technology Consortium, through its distribution network.

ArCADiasoft it also produces programs upon request.

The company collaborated with companies such as Henkel, BALMA, PAROC, Sanitec and Saint-Gobain.

ArCADia 11

ArCADia 11Is a program that supports 2D and 3D design. Due to its functional philosophy and the same data saving format (DWG), it is very similar to the Autocad program.

ArCADia 11 Plus

ArCADia PLUS 11 software has all the features of ArCADia LT and ArCADia software.

ArCADia LT

ArCADia LTIt is a functional, easy-to-use and smart detection CAD program that allows 2D building projects to be created object-based and files to be saved in DWG 2013 format. It is a graphic design tool for the construction industry where you can run your projects in the widest scope ...

ArCADia AC

ArCADia ACIs a plug-in that allows AutoCAD software to communicate and communicate with ArCADia BIM basic features. ArCADia AC it also combines all ArCADia BIM industry modules in a single interface. It is a program specifically geared towards the construction industry, so it has many features to facilitate any construction industry project. The program, which has features that facilitate CAD drawings, allows you to quickly draw multilayer walls, take advantage of structural components such as window and door joinery, columns, sub floors, ceilings, and design Teriva floor systems. It creates lists of window and door frames used with the list and large rooms and symbols for each floor.
