GRAPHISOFT has announced the latest version of its industry-leading BIM software solution for architects and designers. In order to make this version of ArchiCAD BIM software the best it could be for architects, GRAPHISOFT focused on addressing workflow issues and creating ways to support the creative design process without interruption.
Many of the innovations in ArchiCAD 18 will smooth out your BIM workflow. Architects will be pleased to see that the CINEMA 4D rendering is now fully-incorporated into ArchiCAD 18. This innovations will let you create models with high-end photo-rendering capabilities previously found only in professional visualization applications.
ArchiCAD 18 has:
- GRAPHISOFT BIMcloud Integration
The true potential of BIM is best realized through a team effort with several contributors collaborating on the same BIM data. With its full integration with the GRAPHISOFT BIMcloud, ArchiCAD 18 offers industry-first, real-time BIM collaboration regardless of the size, location or set up of the collaborating team. Cloud integration allows the ArchiCAD team to soar without limits.
- Built-in CINEMA 4D Rendering Engine
Make high-quality renderings right within your model by taking advantage of the one-button “photo-shot” rendering feature. It is something novice and professional users will enjoy. There is also a live preview and background processor support to make the rendering workflow progress smoothly.
- Integrated Revision Management
Keep track of all changes to the model via ArchiCAD 18’s brand new Revision Management solution provides solutions for 2D, 3D or any kind of hybrid workflows.
- Improved PDF-based Data Exchange
PDF has become one of the worldwide drawing standards people use for multiple tasks. By introducing BIM-related intelligence and data hierarchy into PDF files, ArchiCAD 18 offers PDF-based smooth workflows for a wide range of stakeholders in the AEC process.
- OPEN BIM and IFC-based Workflow Improvements
In ArchiCAD 18 you’ll find ArchiCAD Mark-Up Entries and professional scheme-driven data management and data mapping, and high-quality (certified) export processes as well as full BIM Collaboration Format (BCF) support to improve coordination with engineers and consultants. Supporting BCF (an open file format that allows the addition of textual comments and screen-shots on top of the IFC model layer for better communication between the coordinating parties) takes place directly within the model.
GRAPHISOFT ignited the BIM revolution with ArchiCAD, the industry first BIM software for architects. GRAPHISOFT continues to lead the industry with innovative solutions such as the revolutionary GRAPHISOFT BIM Server, the world's first real-time BIM collaboration environment, and the GRAPHISOFT EcoDesigner, the world's first fully integrated building energy modeling application. GRAPHISOFT's innovative solutions have fundamentally changed the way architects around the world design and collaborate. GRAPHISOFT has been a part of the Nemetschek Group since its acquisition in 2007.
