    Onshape doesn't have any specific tools for calculating air flow or other architectural things.

    I'm in the middle of modeling storage and I think it will be better for construction guys than any sheet from archicad.

    Onshape can model structures that would then be used to simulate air flow through a partner app like  xFlow or SimScale https://www.onshape.com/partners/technology.  I was surprised that with very little effort I was able to whip up this building.

    Yes, Onshape builds architectual geometry easily. It's parametric meaning you can make changes to the building easily.

    Onshape doesn't have any CFD (air flow solvers), but you can export the geometry to a CFD solver.
