Welcome to the world of the Smart-XA tool suite! Here’s your chance to see our very own Green Building tool in action! Now all our valued clients finally get to see the first of the tools that will change their ArchiCAD experience forever! Continue reading
The Smart XA Tool Suite is being presented this morning to our channel partners all over the SADC region by Shawn Hopkins and Alister Reid.
Following the release of the SANS 10400 regulations in South Africa, architects were now faced with a challenge to create sustainable design whilst enjoying the design freedom of CAD. Whilst other competitive products met the demand for a solution, they were all external to the model design/architectural BIM model meaning that whilst designing, energy calculations could only be done outside the software.
Graphisoft South Africa recognized this need and teamed up with Smart Tools to develop a product suite with the primary goal of meeting the compliance requirement of the SANS regulations. We endeavor to create a solution that allows the user to do the energy calculations in ArchiCAD without leaving the model.
After months of development, we are proud to announce the first release of the product suite which is in the final stages of the development. The product suite will be freely available to all up-to-date Graphisoft SA maintenance contract clients. Four tools will be released over the course of 2014, one at the end of every quarter, to satisfy regulation requirements and rational design.
We will be giving our valued clients the opportunity to apart of this decision-making process of choosing the remaining tools that will be developed over the next year.
