Sign up for the ARCHICAD 21 Live Webinar

Saturday, June 17th, 2017

Are you doing stairs the way we do stairs? Stairs need railings, and ARCHICAD 21 coordinates railings with complex stairs via one click. Our “Predictive Design” technology fuels this amazing advancement of our popular BIM tool too.

Want to learn more? There’s a webinar for that! Wednesday, June 21, 2017

Whether you’re already using ARCHICAD, just kicking the tires, or simply want to see the most innovative developments in BIM technology today, then this webinar is a must-see event! We’re going to show you some of ARCHICAD 21’s most incredible new features, including:

The Stair Tool:

ARCHICAD 21 evaluates thousands of options and offers the most optimal stair design choices within the context of the specific building you’re working on. Featuring GRAPHISOFT’s patent‑pending Predictive Design™ technology, the Stair Tool turns what is usually a painful task into something truly fun—so fun, we even remodeled some stair classics such as the Great Wall of China The Bauhaus Stairs of Budapest and Robson Square Vancouver to prove it!

The Railing Tool:

now you can create complex, associative railings for Stairs, Slabs, Walls, Roofs, or Meshes. The configurable Railing Pattern Editor offers unique railing patterns specific to each design project. Railings can be created with a single click based on predefined rules and standards.

Faster, More Realistic Rendering:

based on the latest MAXON Cinema 4D rendering engine, ARCHICAD 21 offers you high-quality, photo-realistic rendering right within the BIM environment, now with Light Mapping and Secondary GI methods.
