Functional Changes with Hotfix-1 (Build 3267)

GRAPHISOFT BIMx has been part of the standard installation of ARCHICAD 15. All ARCHICAD 15 users are entitled to create and use BIMx files on the computer their ARCHICAD 15 is installed. To share BIMx models with other computers, a full BIMx license is needed. Between September 20 and October 31, all BIMx installations are enabled to save and share full BIMx files that can be viewed on any computer device without limitation. Install Hotfix #1 to enable the full save/share functionality of your BIMx installation for the TRIAL period. ARCHICAD 15 users can create BIMx projects following these steps:

  1. Open any of your ARCHICAD projects and switch to the 3D window.
    Activate the Export for BIM Explorer command from the File menu, and launch the full-featured, trial version of BIMx.
  2. Press Escape to open the BIMx menu and activate the Export for Windows or Export for MacOS command from the File menu to create a BIMx model.

With BIMx, GRAPHISOFT puts BIM into the hands of all stakeholders not actively involved in the actual creation of the BIM model, such as contractors, builders, clients, owners, and principals of design practices.

ARCHICAD 15 Hotfix-1 (Build 3267) for BIM Server and ARCHICAD

This Hotfix includes important fixes for bugs discovered since the original release of ARCHICAD 15 (Build 3003) and BIM Server including a large number of IFC and TEAMWORK related bugfixes. The hotfix applies to all components: ARCHICAD, BIM Server, BIM Server Manager, EcoDesigner, BIM Explorer, MEP Modeler and all other GRAPHISOFT-distributed Add-Ons and Goodies. It applies to all (Commercial, Educational and Trial) license types.

About the installer:

the Hotfix process will automatically search your computer for instances of three applications (in this order):

  1. ARCHICAD 15 (including MEP Modeler, EcoDesigner, and all Graphisoft add-ons)
  2. GRAPHISOFT BIM Server (including the BIM Server Manager, automatically installed along with the BIM Server)
  3. Standalone BIM Server Manager (This refers to the standalone BIM Server Manager, a separate application which can be optionally installed from the ARCHICAD 15 DVD)

If ARCHICAD 15 and/or the standalone BIM Server Manager are found to be installed on your machine, you can choose to either update it or not.

If the BIM Server is found to be installed on your machine, it will be automatically updated if it is not up-to-date.

If ARCHICAD 15 is already up-to-date, but one of the ARCHICAD components (e.g. MEP Modeler or EcoDesigner) is not, the installer will indicate this and you can choose to update it.

Important Note for Teamwork users:

Working in Teamwork requires that client ARCHICADs, the BIM Server Manager and the BIM Server all have the identical version number (or “build number”).

If you are running a client ARCHICAD whose version number is different than that of the BIM Server, you cannot continue working in Teamwork until the same hotfix is installed for the BIM Server. (The same is true for all the other client ARCHICADs working from the same BIM Server.)

Therefore, if you decide to update either a client ARCHICAD or a BIM Server, be aware that you must update all clients and the BIM Server so that they share the identical version number.

Installation steps:

  1. Make sure you have administrator rights on the computer. Make sure none of the ARCHICAD components are modified (e.g. renamed). If you are updating a BIM Server, also make sure that you are logged in as the user who installed it originally.
  2. When you run the hotfix package, the process will automatically search your computer for instances of the three applications listed above. For each of these applications found on your machine, you will be informed of its hotfix status (either “is up to date” or “can be updated”). 

For ARCHICAD or Standalone BIM Server Manager: 

The update of GRAPHISOFT BIM Server works a bit differently:
