ASCON Releases Renga Architecture v2.4

Skriv ut
ASCON Group, the developer and integrator of professional AEC, MCAD, and PLM systems, is pleased to announce a fresh release of Renga Architecture 2.4, its architectural design system.

The new release implements important requests from users, among them separate views of individual objects (such as columns, beams, windows, and doors), an update to the display style dialog box, and a way to locate offset columns and beams.

This update provides architects and designers with greater options in showing models in drawings the way they want, making Renga Architecture more flexible.

Display Individual Objects

To get views of columns, beams, windows, doors and other objects, Renga Architecture 2.4 now lets you mark objects and then choose them from the object list to place them in draft view. Architects had asked for this function, because their clients were requesting layouts of, for instance, all windows with their different sizes, which could then be sent on to production.

While it was possible in previous releases of Renga to display individual objects with the help of views – section, front, or plan – then clipping the view to isolate the object, this process was inconvenient and did not necessarily prevent other objects from appearing in the clipped view.

The new Renga 2.4 places selected objects in draft view in just two clicks, after marking the desired objects. When placing the object in draft view, you choose a view – front, top, right, and so on – as well as the scale of the object. Just locate the individual objects in the draft view and then specify their plot size.

This new feature is useful for designers in many ways, such as placing reinforced objects and rolled metal objects (stands, beans, trusses, and so on) separately from one other.

Object Display Styles

In Renga 2.4, it is now possible to set the visibility of individual objects in each view through the following properties:

  • Display style
  • Level of detail
  • Properties for projections and sections

Previously, users could not adjust view styles, and there was only visibility of objects on view. Now you can set styles for yourself, and add a level of detail. The view can be adjusted in draft view the way architects and designers want it. For example, you can set different levels of detail, so that in the same view on different drafts objects are reflected in different ways.
