WIC3D – EXPERT 3D SOFTWARE
For complex constructions, such as curtain walling, WICONA has created its own specific piece of software: WIC3D.
Once the initial design has been created, in Sketchup® for example, architects can send it to the WIC3D software. Once uploaded, projects can then be brought to life using WICONA products that are integrated into the software. Once any changes have been made, architects can reintegrate them into their design. This same data can be used within WICTOP, the technical costing and design software.
WIC3D is also an intuitive and innovative BIM sketching tool which has been specially designed for architects, specifiers and fabricators, saving time in producing 3D drawings and 3D rendered models.

BIM (or “Building Information Modelling”) is defined in the BIM Handbook as a technology in which “an accurate virtual model of a building is constructed digitally.” These models facilitate the design process with improved analysis and control compared with manual procedures. “When completed, these computer generated models contain precise geometry and data needed to support construction, fabrication, and procurement.”
WICONA provides our product libraries in the “REVIT” and “ARCHICAD” formats. The products included such as the WICTEC 50 façade, WICLINE windows and WICSTYLE doors are available to download from BIMObject and BIMStore.
