Bentley speedikon is a powerful and integrated Building Information Modeling (BIM) application for architectural design, building performance analysis and documentation.
Bentley speedikon is suited for new and existing architectural and industrial buildings of all sizes and levels of complexity like no other product on the market. It supports all workflow tasks from 2D/3D constructional design to detailing, and integrates design, drawing production, reporting of quantity take-off, preparation of data for facilities management and photo-realistic visualization using a high level of standardization.
Bentley speedikon's high degree of planning effectiveness is the result of a sophisticated virtual building model (BIM) with intelligent building objects. It provides involved, powerful updating automatism, and the customizability to create company-specific CAD processes and standards. It's unique view filter technology even allows the arbitrary automatic creation of drawing types according to information depth, scale, and end, all at the touch of a button.
Prevalent throughout Europe, Bentley speedikon is a market-leading architectural application for MicroStation and PowerDraft.

Thanks to its open and modular structure, which is uncommon in the market, Bentley speedikon Architectural can be customized to suit the individual needs of users - either as a simple 2D workplace, as a powerfully functioning 3D instrument of an integrated architecture planning, or as an integrated part of the production process of prefabricated parts manufacturers and industrial companies.
In Bentley speedikon Architectural, all objects (walls, columns, beams, slabs, roofs, dormers, ceilings, doors, windows, stairs, ramps, components) are parametric, i.e. they can be created and manipulated by simply changing key dimensions. Complex objects, like doors, windows, components, roofs and stairs can include algorithmic rules that capture design intent.
Bentley speedikon Architectural includes unique view filter technology, a fully customizable functionality that controls not only level/layer and drawing symbology (color, line weight and style), but also the re-symbolization of 3D objects to 2D symbols. Therefore, from the same building information model, a variety of floor plans, sections, elevations, and details can be generated at different scale and depth of detail, such as design layouts, working drawings, details, orientation or escape route drawings, simply by changing view filters. Because all drawing originate from the same source, consistency and accuracy across all drawings is guaranteed.
Bentley speedikon Architectural combines the advantages of building information modeling with the tried and tested 2D drawing creation. You design as you have always done.
Exceptionally open and modular, Bentley speedikon Architectural can be customized to suit individual user needs-as a simple 2D workstation, as a powerful and highly functional 3D tool for integrated architectural planning, or as an integral part of the production process of prefabrication, manufacturing, and industrial companies. Suitable for projects of all sizes, Bentley speedikon Architectural is used by organizations that range from one-man architectural firms to multi-national AE companies and owner operators.
The speedikon name has been synonymous with top-class architectural CAD software for over two decades. The high technical standard of the products is the result of many years of practical experience in the building industry and intensive, international research. The outstanding concept behind Bentley speedikon Architectural has let to its uniqueness and market leadership to this day in spite of the fierce competition.
Open and customizable, Bentley speedikon Architectural suits different project workflows and allows the creation, management, verification, and enforcement of company and project standards.
Powerful rendering, animation, lighting, and camera controls that are directly accessible within the design environment of Bentley speedikon Architectural provide immediate visual feedback for design decisions and streamline the creation of convincing presentations without the need to export data to an external visualization application (Note: only Bentley speedikon Architectural for MicroStation).
The functionality of Bentley speedikon Architectural can further be boosted with the powerful module 'Bentley 3D-Construction for speedikon' for free-form modeling, creation of parametric content, and evaluation of intelligent 3D objects. Complex parametric objects can freely be modeled and added to the existing libraries of the standard architectural objects available in the software. Objects such as prefabricated elements or office and laboratory equipment remain fully flexible, like shape, size, and material.
The function for quantity take-off generates accurate quantity reports and room schedules based on the 3D building model geometric properties and attributes of Bentley speedikon Architectural.
