Graphisoft Chosen for CADENCE Magazine's Editors' Choice Award
SAN FRANCISCO/BUDAPEST, June 7, 2001 - Graphisoft is proud to announce that the newest version of its flagship product, ARCHICAD 7.0, has been honored by CADENCE magazine with their semi-annual Editors' Choice Award.
To acknowledge and commend the "best of the breed," CADENCE's Editors' Choice Award recognizes innovative CAD-related products and services that are truly exceptional in the judgment of the editorial advisory board, reviewers and the core editorial staff.
"The Editors' Choice Award is presented to companies that distinguish themselves with products that are truly exceptional,"says Arnie Williams, CADENCE Editor-in-Chief. "We chose ARCHICAD 7.0 because it exemplifies innovation, creativity and simplicity."
"It is an honor to be recognized by CADENCE designating ARCHICAD 7.0 among the top in the industry," says Chris Barron, vice-president of architecture for Graphisoft US. "7.0 extends the implementation of our parametric object technology, giving our users more power and flexibility in the design process. And the built-in collaboration features - ProjectXChange - offer architectural firms of any size the tools they need to manage the flow of design information to the entire project team."
As a powerful extension of ARCHICAD's TeamWork functionality, ProjectXChange is a seamless approach to managing project workflow via the Web. Using a trio of ProjectXChange tools - Publisher, Reviewer and Mark-Up - ARCHICAD projects make the roundtrip to the Web and back without the use of cumbersome third-party hosting solutions or additional applications.
With a single click, projects can be published into convenient sets of floor plans, 3D views, movie files and quantity take-offs, for printing, saving or uploading to the Web. The introduction of construction simulation, a process that animates 3D models to 4D with the addition of the time dimension, shows various construction or demolition stages. ARCHICAD 7.0 also supports the IFC 2.0 standard, enabling interoperability with products like Visio and Timberline cost-estimating software.
