GRAPHISOFT Showcases ARCHICAD 20 at AIA 2016
BOSTON, May 18, 2016 – GRAPHISOFT® will showcase the latest version of its industry-leading BIM software solution for architects and designers, ARCHICAD 20, at this year's AIA National Convention in Philadelphia, PA at booth #2439, May 19-21.
The new release of ARCHICAD 20 contains a number of important functional improvements that put the emphasis on the “I” in BIM — all of which increase the value for both ARCHICAD users and external stakeholders alike. Its brand new, “flat-design” graphical UI sets the new version apart from run-of-the-mill BIM tools.
ARCHICAD 20 is equipped with an industry-first, bi-directional “live” Rhino-Grasshopper-ARCHICAD connection. The synergy of these tools makes seamless bi-directional geometry transfer possible, as well as translation of basic geometrical shapes into full BIM elements while maintaining algorithmic editing functionality.
“Our BIM design tools are purpose-built for architects, home builders and designers,” said Steve Benford, Managing Director, at GRAPHISOFT North America. “We enhanced the way ARCHICAD 20 stores, manages and shares information. We also developed a fresh new interface for ARCHICAD 20. Our ongoing investment in ARCHICAD is just one of many reasons why it continues to deliver great value and stand out as one of the best solutions for the industry.”
Another highlight sure to impress during the show is the Architizer A+ award-winning app, BIMx PRO. Designed for architects and designers, BIMx PRO opens up the ability to view 2D and 3D content (the Hyper-model) of building projects saved to a BIMx format. BIMx shows the information — the “I” in BIM — even as it travels to the job site on an iPad or mobile device. Using BIMx, project stakeholders can access the complete construction documentation of buildings with the tap of a finger.
During the show, GRAPHISOFT invites you to get started with ARCHICAD on your terms. Explore ARCHICAD and our value-priced ARCHICAD Solo with a perpetual license, rental or lease-to-own at 0% for 12 months.
