Maria Barabash, Director of LIRA CAD, Doctor of Technical Sciences, Professor, presented interesting cases on how users use the multifunctional software complex “LIRA-project” for “LIRA-project” building and machine-building structures for various purposes. She noted that the company is happy to observe what facilities are built with the support of its decisions, and even encourages to share their practical experience. Such feedback becomes key when updating and expanding the functionality of the software package.
During her speech, Ms. Maria illustrated the operation of the visual programming system in the PC “LIRA-CAD”, which allows users to perform parametric modeling of buildings and structures of any shape. In the presentation, she noted that this system is a representative of a new generation of technologies for creating models of structures and is a graphical editor of algorithms (sequence of actions).
Among the important ones, Maria Barabash said that today interoperability is not only an important component of BIM technology, but also a persistent market demand. This encourages the interoperable information system “LIRA-CAD” to further develop the functionality of integration. She reminded of the large number of converters implemented. In particular, communication with Revit, Tekla, ARCHICAD, AutoCad, Allplan, BoCAD, MIDAS, Rhinoceros / Grasshopper and other architectural, calculation, graphics and documentation systems. With the development of VIM, users increasingly began to inquire about the possibility of creating systems from arbitrary heterogeneous, distributed components based on unified interfaces or protocols and their interaction regardless of the hardware and software platform.
The advantages of the modern concept of computer-aided design, the expert called the test of any idea for strength. For example, with the help of the software package “LIRA-CAD” you can determine the main and equivalent load, to check the various theories of strength.
