ARCHICAD on Archispeak Podcast

Thursday, July 28th, 2016

archispeak+logo+512The power of the podcast is well-documented. At their origination, podcasts – or “audio blogging” as the practice was first named – were a handy way to share information, though at first they did not enjoy widespread adoption. So much has changed since the. By the year 2004, broadband internet access and portable audio devices helped podcasts transition from those early days, through a trendy buzz word type of category to the distribution method it is today. Currently more than 115-thousand English-speaking podcasts exist, contributing to an ever louder online volume.

The Archispeak Podcast is one podcast I’d recommend checking out. The trio of hosts; Evan Troxel, Neal Pann, and Cormac Phalen get together regularly to have casual conversations about all things architecture. What I like about their style is they celebrate the triumphs and highlight successes AND are unafraid to point out failures or situations where they think the proverbial bar was missed.

ARCHICAD 20 World Premiere

Tuesday, June 7th, 2016

See ARCHICAD 20 – demonstrated live to GRAPHISOFT’s Key Clients.

In May, GRAPHISOFT announced the latest version of its industry-leading BIM software solution – ARCHICAD 20. On June 13 you will be able to see its world premiere!

ARCHICAD 20 features a number of important functional improvements that put the emphasis on the “I” in BIM, increasing the value for both ARCHICAD users and external stakeholders alike. Its brand new, “flat-design” graphical UI sets the new version apart from run-of-the-mill BIM tools.

Register to watch the world premiere of ARCHICAD 20 during GRAPHISOFT’s Key Client Conference held in Budapest. The event will be streamed live on June 13, 2016, at 3:00-4:30 PM (CET)

What’s new in ARCHICAD 20AC20_Splash_Screen

Enhanced Information Management

Storing: ARCHICAD 20 helps architects and designers to utilize their Building Information Model as the central storage place for all project information. They can even easily store and maintain design information that was not created using CAD or BIM tools, like Excel spreadsheets.

Displaying: ARCHICAD 20 takes that well-structured information and helps architects use it efficiently. Smart filters and a brand new graphical override help designers to freely change the representation of any 2D and 3D views of elements with similar properties. The result? A number of workflows that make communication, coordination and model checking much more efficient.
