GRAPHISOFT Showcases ARCHICAD 19 Solo at NAHB/IBS 2016
BOSTON, January 18, 2016 – The GRAPHISOFT North America team will demonstrate ARCHICAD 19 Solo, a BIM software solution tailored to the needs of homebuilders at this year's NAHB/IBS Convention in Las Vegas, Nevada at booth #C3060, January 19-21. With features such as a renovation filter, quantity and material takeoffs and 3D presentation app – BIMx, ARCHICAD 19 Solo is all that’s needed for the creation of custom, high-end residential homes.
ARCHICAD 19 Solo provides powerful advantages over a 2D CAD solution – operating on a building focused, 3D model-based design platform. For remodeling and home expansion projects, ARCHICAD 19 Solo supplies a built-in renovation tool. Users can coordinate all documentation and create integrated presentations for client meetings.
Homebuilders who rely on ARCHICAD 19 Solo have the ability to create quantity take-offs and schedules for bills of materials. The software also allows for Passive House design – supporting full PHPP export.
"ARCHICAD 19 Solo delivers cutting edge technology and one of the fastest BIM tools available. It’s a level of performance many have come to expect from GRAPHISOFT. The intuitive and responsive set of tools homebuilders need are all there,” said Steve Benford, Managing Director, at GRAPHISOFT North America. "We developed ARCHICAD 19 Solo to simplify the process of BIM adoption for the sole practitioner.”
GRAPHISOFT North America proudly announces that representatives from noted ARCHICAD firms will be sharing their experiences in using ARCHICAD. On day one of the show, ARCHICAD firm, Amerisips will present their Zero Energy Ready Home during the Exhibitor Forum. This project achieved national recognition from both the Department of Energy and the USGBC. It was made possible by a reliance on an ARCHICAD workflow, combining innovative energy solutions with a detail rich ARCHICAD model. Amerisips clients saw their house come to life on a 6’ by 4’ interactive touchscreen monitor.
