Archicad 25 - an intuitive design tool

10 of February '22

Archicad software supports architectural design.
From the series "Tools for design, modeling, rendering - Overview 22".

Archicad - is an ever-improving architectural design support software, enabling effective integration of BIM modeling issues, information management, presentation of design ideas, and interprofessional collaboration and communication. Its greatest advantage is its intuitive use.

Archicad - it's more comfort in design

Such solutions as automatic generation of 2D documentation, interactive lists or built-in, high-end, rendering enginemake it easier to perform daily tasks related to project preparation.

Thecreation of 2D drawings (elevations and sections) in the latest version of Archicad has been enhanced by the ability to make full use of textures assigned to model components. Together with the ability to share the project on mobile devices, using the BIMx format, this makes Archicad an effective tool to support presentation and communication with other participants in the design process.

Archicad - it's effective BIM modeling

According to the requirements of BIM technology, tasks such as automatic documentation preparation or interprofessional coordination, among others, are performed based on a digital model of the building and can be carried out in a single, everyday environment and easily shared with other participants in the development process.
Components of the BIM model can be added using dedicated tools, in which it is possible to map virtually all geometric and informational features of building elements. The use of visual programming in PARAM-O tool allows you to easily create your own parametric objects while the combination with the Rhino/Grasshopper software environment or the use of the Python language provides virtually unlimited possibilities for modifying the geometry or managing the information associated with the BIM model.

Archicad - is cross-industry collaboration

Archicad is also a leading platform incorporating the latest in OPEN BIM interprofessional collaboration and communication. The use of the IFC format, built-in clash detection tools, model comparison or a system for adding comments to a project, with the possibility of sharing them in the BCF standard, facilitate coordination and sharing of design decisions with designers from other trades. In the latest, 25th edition of Archicad, further tools have been implemented to facilitate the use of the IFC standard - including defining the modeling starting point and its relation to the actual project location using a built-in geodetic point.

- Maciej Szymanik describes.

In addition, the generation and editing of the analytical model of the structure (available since version 24) have been supplemented with the definition of loads. This allows Archicad 25 to be used more and more effectively also by structural designers, who can work together with architects on a single physical model.

Together with many other changes, this makes Archicad 25 a tool adapted to the needs of architects and enables the entire design process to be carried out efficiently and effectively in one integrated environment.
