Welcome to ICDAS Arcade software!

This section (and sections on the left menu) is a brief introduction to

working with automatic model creation of Hall Constructions. It describes

the basic methodology and is not contained all ICDAS tools and descriptions.

All examples are generic for worldwide use and do not conform to specific

company standards. Refer to a ICDAS licence for more details on all

parameters and guides to your project.

vertical columns. Other non-structural elements stabilize the building as

roofs and walls/curtain walls.


Material steel or wood being use for the beams, glass for the roofs, and 

masonry block/glass for the facades.

along a longitudinal beam, and unlimited number of longitudinal beams. Each

longitudinal beam has its own curved polynomial consisting of straight lines.
