A powerful and versatile architecture-oriented CAD utility that drastically increaseits users productivity and boosts their ability to design great architecture
ArchiCAD is a well-designed and fully-featured cross-platform CAD application that provides a distraction free design environment created to enable architects to work on their projects with little to no distraction and all the tools they need to generate a high quality end product.
Helps you translate your creativity into impressive designs
Thanks to ArchiCAD’s Building Information Modeling approach, you can concentrate on your work, explore new ideas and let ArchiCAD capture every detail and synchronize your documents at all times.
Moreover, with ArchiCAD’s real-time BIM collaboration environment, you can take advantage of the smart, model-based workflow that you can share with your team members in order to increase your efficiency in the designing process.
Easily collaborate with other architects and enjoy the reliable data-exchange between users
Furthermore, ArchiCAD helps you model and shape freely to create complex items, and innovative designs, which can be viewed from different angles. You can also combine the provided creative freedom with the efficiency of the powerful Building Information Model.
ArchiCAD also comes with a comprehensive list of tools that you can use throughout your project while the direct modeling capabilities in the native BIM environment along with the end-to-end BIM workflow based on Priority Based Connections, together with the MORPH tool and Intelligent Building Materials make ArchiCAD a must have for both novice and experienced architects.
In addition, ArchiCAD is capable to automatically create the required documentation and images for your 3D Building Information Model while the priority based junctions and the intelligent building materials provide the accurate graphical representations of the elements and materials used in the project.
Let ArchiCAD do the hard work for you and effortlessly create 3D Building Information Models in a snap
ArchiCAD is also designed to offer you numerous view settings, unique drawing handling and advanced publishing capabilities that can be used to save your drawing sets with ease.
At the same time, the ArchiCAD's Geometric Description Language provides all the information required to faithfully describe the construction elements as 2D CAD symbols, 3D models and text specifications that can be used in drawings, presentations and quantity calculations.
On the whole, if you are an architect in need of a powerful and comprehensive computer assisted design solution, ArchiCAD might just be the tool you've been looking for seeing that it would tick all the right boxes in an architecture CAD solution's requirements quiz.
