GRAPHISOFT Introduces Rhino–Grasshopper–ARCHICAD Connection

Tuesday, September 22nd, 2015

Announcing an ARCHICAD Interoperability Increase

Exciting news from GRAPHISOFT that fills a gap in the design process between early stage design and building information modeling. GRAPHISOFT announced the release of a public beta version of a Rhino-Grasshopper-ARCHICAD connection. The enhanced connection opens up creative options for architects. The existing natural link between Rhino and Grasshopper empowers them to start and modify their designs in any of the three design environments — Rhino, Grasshopper or ARCHICAD

ARCHICAD RhinoIt is an industry-first, bidirectional “real-time” connection – giving architects and designers freedom to use their favorite algorithmic design tool (Grasshopper) in combination with professional BIM software (ARCHICAD) through a best-in-class iterative design workflow. Now it is easier than ever to explore multiple design variations, create and fine-tune building details and structures using algorithms without exchanging files.

Native file format support for Rhinoceros found in ARCHICAD already let designers open and save Rhino project files of any size or complexity – the extension of this compatibility makes the benefits of using BIM at an early design phase more accessible.

As Tomohiko Yamanashi, Executive Officer and Deputy Head of Architectural Design Department at Nikken Sekkei put it, ”This connection will also help align the traditional design process with the computational design approach. I am looking forward to seeing BIM become a friendlier design tool for architects.”

The public beta test begins on September 28 – click here to sign-up for the beta or to register for a free, online webinar on October 6.
