Trelligence Affinity: Extending BIM to Space Programming and PlanningAECbytes Archived Article (July 29, 2010)

While a large number of competing solutions are available for conceptual 3D modeling as well as later phases of building design and construction, the area of space programming and planning in the AEC technology industry is dominated mainly by one solution: Affinity from Trelligence. Not only does it have architectural programming, space planning, and schematic design capabilities, it also integrates bi-directionally with BIM applications like Revit and ArchiCAD, allowing BIM to be extended to the pre-design phase of building projects. This article takes a detailed look at Trelligence Affinity and how it works.
