Release Notes for ArchiCAD 17 Hotfix 3 (Build 4008)
ArchiCAD 17 Hotfix 3 Build 4008 contains various fixes and improvements necessary to introduce full BIMx Hyper-model support to ArchiCAD 17. The brand new BIMx Hyper-model publishing allows complete BIM documentation (3D models as well as 2D drawings) to be shared for use on iOS devices such as the iPhone/iPad.
This hotfix applies to ArchiCAD only, on all (Commercial, Educational and Trial) license types.
ArchiCAD 17 Hotfix 3 (build 4008) requires Hotfix 2 (build 4005) to be installed. You will be notified on the availability of the ArchiCAD 17 Hotfix 3 (build 4008) either by going to the ArchiCAD Help menu/ "Check For Updates" item or through the Automatic Update System if your ArchiCAD 17 is on build 4005.
- Make sure you have administrator rights on the computer. Start the full installation process using an administrator account. For Mac users make sure to mount the installation dmg while being signed in with the administrator account that you always use to install or patch GRAPHISOFT products. Make sure none of the ArchiCAD components are modified (e.g. renamed).
- Teamwork users: This Hotfix only applies to ArchiCAD. The BIM Server does not need to be updated. ArchiCAD build 4008 will work with BIM server build 4005 smoothly. Teamwork projects however will be updated to build 4008, therefore the Hotfix has to be applied to all ArchiCAD stations using Teamwork.
When you run the hotfix package, the process will automatically search for ArchiCAD on your computer. You can choose to either update it or not. If your current ArchiCAD version is not upgraded to build 4005 yet, then the Hotfix installer will not find this ArchiCAD as one to be upgraded.
- If you have multiple copies of ArchiCAD on your machine, the installer will automatically find one copy. If you want to update a different instance, you can use the "Browse" button to locate it. You will need to run the installer multiple times to update each copy of ArchiCAD.
- Please note that since this Hotfix is a feature introducing Hotfix, not all components will be of a new build number. Help Menu's License Information will display build 4005 while About ArchiCAD will display build 4008.
