GRAPHISOFT Receives Two Best of Show Awards at AIA 2014
BOSTON, June 14, 2014 – GRAPHISOFT® has been recognized with two Best of Show awards from Architosh, a leading online publication devoted to Mac and iOS CAD and 3D software professionals and students. The awards are announced based on software and technology that was exhibited at this year's AIA National Convention in Chicago, IL, June 26-28.
Architosh Editor-in-Chief Anthony Frausto-Robledo, AIA, LEED, AP selected what he considered the best software in four categories: Desktop, Mobile, BIM and Innovation. GRAPHISOFT products were awarded with honors in two out of the four categories, Mobile and BIM. In the mobile category, the Best of Show honor went to BIMx Docs.
Of BIMx Docs, Frausto-Robledo said, in part, “BIMx Docs does something no other app in the world does. It has laid down the ultimate UI/UX paradigm for how to visually connect BIM geometry models to the visual world of 2D drawings, something the public for the most part still assumes architects spend most of their day doing. ...BIMx Docs is an elegant and useful tool to bring BIM model data and their associated drawings into the field or the remote client office.”
ArchiCAD 18 with BIMcloud took Best of Show in the BIM category.
"Graphisoft’s ArchiCAD 18 with BIMcloud™ technology ... is very impressive. Graphisoft’s delta technology is already in a class by itself because it reduces the transferred difference data (delta) down to 100 kilobyte chunks, something that is more than an order of magnitude smaller than its biggest rival. What’s really impressive to me is that you can scale up through the cloud without stopping your teams and access to the BIM data."
“We are pleased and honored ArchiCAD 18 with BIMcloud™ and BIMx Docs were selected by the Architosh editors for Best of Show awards,” said Steve Benford, GRAPHISOFT North America managing director. "BIMx Docs and ArchiCAD 18 are yet again proof positive of GRAPHISOFT’s ongoing commitment to providing the AEC space with tools to support creative design and enhance the creative flow.”
