ATHENA 3D Modeling

Never before was the three-dimensional design of façades so easy. Sloping polygon façades, pyramids, glass roofs, bays and other complicated geometries can be quickly generated without complication. The automatic generation of cut parts saves a great deal of time and effort

The ATHENA 3D function is designed to prepare a complete façade for production.

ATHENA 3D Modeling

Create and edit Assembly


The Bar Assemblies Manager facilitates the grouping of a number of profiles to form an assembly, e.g., a transom with sealing strips, insulator and cover section. Within an assembly, the components can be modified or reassigned. Also, the components can be rotated and mirrored, and the insertion points can be displaced.


You can create infill's, e.g., panels that can make up several layers. The infill's are assigned to boundary objects, for instance mullions and transoms. When an infill is assigned, the insets are quickly and easily defined. The inset can be different for each edge, and also different for each layer. In this way, notched glazing can be created.

Bar diagram

After the automatic profile joints (cuttings) routine has been run, bar diagrams can be produced. A 2D bar diagram of the profile with lengths, angles and part numbers is automatically created.

Create parts lists


Parts lists can be created directly from the 3D drawing from all parts used in the construction. Infill lists and bar lists, including raw and cut-lengths of the profiles, can be created. The lists are created in MS-Excel/Access format.

Simplified Display


The profiles can either be displayed in full detail or simplified. There are four different display levels. The simplest display (rectangles) reduces the file size to 1/15th, and the working speed increases correspondingly.
