Designing with ArchiCAD

Any architect with the passion to freely explore design ideas can fulfill their wishes without compromising on documentation precision and quality. With ArchiCAD, you can model and shape freely, easily creating the forms you want and easily change even complex elements in the most appropriate view. ArchiCAD enables you to combine creative freedom with the well-known efficiency of its robust Building Information Model. A comprehensive set of tools supports the creative process within the context of the project.

ArchiCAD 17 enhances its direct modeling capabilities in the native BIM environment with its end-to-end BIM workflow using Priority Based Connections and Intelligent Building Materials, and an improved MORPH™ tool. Cloud-integration helps users create and find the custom objects, components they need to make their BIM models complete. GRAPHISOFT continues to innovate in “green” as well, uniquely offering the best workflow for sustainable design, integrated into its BIM authoring tool.

MORPH Tool
— Redefining Modeling Freedom for BIM

ArchiCAD presents direct modeling capabilities to the native BIM environment with its Shell tool and improved MORPH™ tool allowing element creation with any custom geometry in an intuitive graphical way.

Ideally, building design is not an exercise on paper; the real results are the finished building. With ArchiCAD, you don't have to compromise on design freedom or structural correctness. ArchiCAD offers an impressive array of real BIM design tools and workflows right from the beginning of the design process.

MORPH Tool — Redefining Modeling Freedom for BIM

ArchiCAD presents direct modeling capabilities to the native BIM environment with its Shell tool and improved MORPH™ tool allowing element creation with any custom geometry in an intuitive graphical way.

MORPH Concept

The MORPH tool has no geometric limitation; every edge, point and surface can be moved and shaped freely and textures can be fine-tuned on every surface. There is no need for GDL programming or for importing special shapes from other 3D programs. MORPH elements are full-fledged ArchiCAD components that appear in all ArchiCAD views and lists and can be classified for structural or MEP export, making this new tool a complete solution for creating custom shapes of any type.

Design Freedom

Design Freedom

Shell is a versatile new tool which lets you create a wide variety of shapes. Use the Shell to model elements, ranging from a building's entire exterior, to a single custom object.

3D design space reinvented

The increase in freedom brought about by the third dimension, adds a new degree of difficulty to orientation in space as well. ArchiCAD 15 introduces 3D guidelines and editing planes to revolutionize the 3D space definition, making the perspective view the natural, 3D environment for building design.
