BIM Server

ArchiCAD Revolutionizes BIM Collaboration

Building Information Modeling brings unique challenges to the design team: when implementing BIM on a larger scale, architects often run into bottlenecks in model accessibility and workflow management. ArchiCAD introduces the GRAPHISOFT BIM Server – a first of its kind solution for model based team collaboration. Industry-first Delta Server™ technology reduces network traffic to a minimum for instant and reliable data-exchange both within the office and over the Internet.

Bridging Continents: Online BIM Collaboration around the World

Watch the recording of the live webinar on Open & Online BIM collaboration. Discover how the GRAPHISOFT BIM server helps teams implement BIM in their everyday practice across continents. To push the limits even further, we will also connect various engineering solutions to the ArchiCAD BIM project through our revolutionary OPEN collaboration workflow.

Speed

Speed

In ArchiCAD's collaborative environment, long waiting times for server synchronization are a thing of the past. The leading-edge Delta Server technology dramatically decreases network traffic. The same technology makes BIM projects accessible through standard Internet connections from virtually anywhere in the world.

Data Safety

Data Safety

Data corruption due to network or hardware failure is a major concern for CAD/BIM Managers: a single faulty computer can literally ruin the work done by the whole office. But the BIM Server's robust system architecture ensures the integrity of the BIM project at all times. Any data errors from malfunctioning components are blocked, preserving the project's integrity on the network.

Workflow

Workflow

ArchiCAD's new Teamwork, with on-demand element access and server-level conflict management, combines the flexibility of 2D workflows with the coordination power of the model-based world. Companies can utilize their workforce much more efficiently with a dynamic and centrally controllable design workflow.

Next-Generation Teamwork in ArchiCAD

ArchiCAD includes a state-of-the-art BIM Server™ introducing a new paradigm in design file sharing. Due to its revolutionary DELTA-server™ technology, only the changed elements are sent between the client and the server. Average data package size shrinks by an order of magnitude from megabytes to kilobytes, so team members can collaborate in real-time on BIM models through standard Internet connections from virtually anywhere in the world.

Getting started with the GRAPHISOFT BIM Server

Getting started with the GRAPHISOFT BIM Server

The GRAPHISOFT BIM Server was designed for Architects not for IT professionals so it works in any standard office setup through any standard computer network. And the best news is that the GRAPHISOFT BIM Server comes free-of-charge with every ArchiCAD license! Join us for this short video demonstration and you shall leave confident that making the GRAPHISOFT BIM Server operational is a real "plug & play" experience!
