It simplifies the modeling and documentation of buildings even if the model contains a high degree of detail. ArchiCAD’s BIM workflow allows the model to be live to the end of the project.
Features ArchiCAD 17
Documentation Based on BIM
The best reward for a passionate architect is to see how their design ideas take shape. With GRAPHISOFT ArchiCAD’s BIM architects can create structurally correct constructive details directly from the start with complete confidence.
- Connections based on Priorities
- Intelligent building materials.
- Association of Elements at Floor Height.
The Best BIM Performance in its class.
ArchiCAD 17 works on 64-bit operating systems Microsoft Windows and Mac OS X. Improving overall performance with advancements in computing speed, GRAPHISOFT is committed to expanding and offering all the possibilities available to the architect. Background Processing Support, Optimized CPU Escalation of Multiple Processors , and Improved Performance of the Central Graphics Unit are a great help in the performance, navigation and visualization of extra-large and complex projects. Designers will also benefit from even faster browsing with OpenGL, enhanced Solid Operations, and fast handling of library (load and display) elements.
- Background Processing Support.
- Improved Performance of the Central Graphics Unit.
- CPU scaling with Multi-Core.
Full 3D Workflows
ArchiCAD 17 incorporates a variety of improvements in 3D design and editing, including enhancement
of the Froma Tool to support conceptual designs with useful
3D zone information and 3D Cutting Plans for additional control over the 3D modeling environment of ArchiCAD.
It also includes a fully functional BIMx with each installation, which will allow users to
share their BIM projects with their clients in an interactive environment.
- Improved SHAPE tool.
- Real-time 3D Cutting Plans.
- BIMx in each ArchiCAD Installation 17.
Integrated BIM Workflows
GRAPHISOFT continues to lead the Open BIM movement with its interdisciplinary collaborative
solutions for architects and engineers considered the best of its kind. With intelligent model-based workflows between several companies, coordination errors can be reduced to virtually zero before the construction phase begins. ArchiCAD 17 continues to offer its expert BIM workflow with several tools, including the integration of BIMobject.com, a fully functional BIMx license, and a platform ready for integration with the new EcoDesigner STAR.
- IFC Support for National Standards.
- Energy Evaluation of the Building.
