Renga Software product team is very excited to announce the release of Renga 4.4 to all our current and future users. In the latest version of Renga we implemented parametric objects in low current systems, textures in materials, and grid lines import from and export to IFC. Read on to see what’s new in Renga 4.4.

Renga 4.4 offers several new functionalities for structural engineers as well. Now they can control the display of plates, columns, and beams that are part of assemblies in display styles. This functionality is extremely important when creating layouts of structural elements in plans and sections in compliance with different LOD levels (fig. 6).

When working on major projects consisting of several buildings or facilities, model coordination is crucial. The BIM software needs to provide users with the single coordinate system and be able to consider the project orientation of buildings relative to the true north. It makes no difference whether the collaboration takes place solely in Renga software or in different BIM solutions. Second scenario is possible due to the efficient data exchange via an open file format IFC. When collaborating in different BIM solutions, automated assemblies and expert evaluation of the consolidated BIM model should be performed in data management software like Pilot-BIM. Thanks to the implemented support for new special properties that allow you to redefine the relative placement and orientation of objects in IFC (fig. 8).
