Rhino - Grasshopper - ARCHICAD Toolset
Designers have various options to connect ARCHICAD's professional BIM work environment with the modeling power of Rhino and Grasshopper.
GRAPHISOFT supports the IFC (Industry Foundation Classes) standard, which enables ARCHICAD to communicate with other disciplines within the context of the building model, and to coordinate a building project entirely in 3D.
The ARCHICAD-Solibri Connection Add-On provides fast and automated code- and constructability checking. The updated Add-On automatically detects and sends only those elements that are changed in the ARCHICAD model, resulting in faster round-trip collaboration. BCF-based issue reporting was introduced to this workflow, enabling designers to assign the detected issues or solve them later on.

Firms using ARCHICAD can use the MEP Modeler to create and edit 3D model-based MEP networks (ductwork, pipework and cabling) and coordinate them within the ARCHICAD Virtual Building. The MEP Modeler uses a familiar interface and tools integrated right in the ARCHICAD environment.
