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.
