ArchiCAD 14 Fosters Open Design Collaboration Between Architects and Engineers

BUDAPEST, Hungary, May 11 — (PRNewswire) — GRAPHISOFT today announced ArchiCAD® 14, the latest version of its award-winning architectural design software. ArchiCAD 14 continues the company's innovation in model-based design collaboration by offering intelligent workflow solutions to the extended design team.

ArchiCAD 14 continues delivering productivity improvements for architects throughout the full cycle of the BIM workflow with a specific focus on completing the integration of the architectural workflow with the engineering world.  

Great architecture requires collaboration of all design disciplines. Architects have a central role in coordinating all aspects of their design with other disciplines during the entire design process. ArchiCAD 14 turns IFC technology into full-fledged workflow solutions enabling collaboration with engineers regardless of their discipline or the name and version of the application they prefer working with. This "open" approach to interdisciplinary collaboration greatly broadens designers' options for real Integrated Project Delivery (IPD) resulting in faster delivered projects and significantly less coordination errors.

"Building Information Modeling (BIM) has created unprecedented potential for design collaboration between the various trades," said Miklos Szovenyi-Lux, Vice President of Product Management at GRAPHISOFT. "With ArchiCAD 14, GRAPHISOFT helps designers realize the true potential of model based collaboration by turning simple 'file compatibility' between architectural and engineering software into intelligent 'workflow solutions' for industry-first open design collaboration."

Open Design Collaboration

ArchiCAD 14 introduces workflow solutions that help bridge the different requirements for BIM models between architects and the various engineering disciplines of the AEC industry. Model mapping, element classification, IFC reference model version tracking and change management support help the coordination between architects and engineers become a smooth and automatic process. ArchiCAD 14 also moves forward with developments to its revolutionary BIM Server based Teamwork solution, further optimizing the management of design teams working on shared BIM projects.

Best-In-Class BIM Workflow

ArchiCAD 14 also delivers a wide array of productivity improvements focusing on the most requested global and local customer wishes. Enriched details to modeling construction elements, better 3D visualization, enhanced 2D drafting, improved handling of libraries and library parts, and refined user interactions are all included in the impressive list of productivity improvements. The results are faster and more polished design and documentation workflows with improved communication capabilities both with clients and consultants, making ArchiCAD 14 the premier BIM solution for architects worldwide.

Availability

ArchiCAD 14 will be available for purchase worldwide as of June 1st. Physical shipment of localized versions will start on June 9th with the INT, US, GER, AUT, AUS and NZE versions. Following a tight release schedule, all 26 local versions are planned to reach the market by the end of Q3 2010.  For more information, please visit: www.graphisoft.com/products/archicad/
