June 23rd, 2015 by Susan Smith

ArchiCAD 19 Open BIM

Graphisoft presented ArchiCAD 19 this year at AIA.

German versions will follow on June 30th These are the first four of 27 local versions,that  should hit the market by the end of Q3 2015.

The primary features of this release are:

  • speed
  • productivity in terms of every day work
  • dimensioning
  • importing point clouds
  • BIM Cloud connected to BIMx so that it can communicate back and forth. This feature is not marketed in the U.S. much, and is more of an owner/facilities management feature.
  • Open BIM

The integration with Rhino is important especially for Academia. Rhino is a product much like SketchUp that is used conceptually at the beginning of design. Many students know Rhino, but it doesn’t go much farther, and the users generally need to send Rhino files to another CAD program to further the design process. Now users can take Rhino to ArchiCAD using Mac or Windows versions.

All the necessary documentation and images are creates automatically for the 3D BIM model in ArchiCAD 19. ArchiCAD’s built in CINEMA 4-D rendering engine and BIMx Hyper-Model publishing capabilities ensure that rendering, printing and saving processes are all derived from the same BIM model.
