ARCHICAD is Architecture First
ARCHICAD was designed for architects by architects and provides an ease of use workflow that is natural for design. Used by architects, designers and builders throughout the world, this BIM software provides you with a native building information modeling platform designed to help professional architects create realistic digital representations of their vision. Combining ease of use with advanced modeling capabilities, this application can integrate the architecture process, from the initial concept and sketch to documentation and detail.
Work in 3D
All creative work and design documentation happens in 3D, so you can make design decisions and see the results in a project’s real, 3D environment.
ARCHICAD offers you the most innovative tools available on the architectural software market. In addition to basic tools such as Curtain Walls and Skylights, architects and designers will appreciate the vast array of advanced tools such as Shell, Morph, and Mesh tools.
One, Central Model
Designers work on a single building model to create, document, and construct their ideas — changes are fast and automatic. Since data is stored in a central place in a BIM model, any modification to the building design will automatically replicate in each view such as floor plans, sections, and elevation.
Documentation Made Easy
Automatically updated, one-click documentation makes even the most tedious tasks fast and easy. ARCHICAD helps not only in creating the documentation faster, but also provides stringent quality assurance by automatic coordination of the different views.
Graphisoft is a founder of the OPEN BIM approach to collaborative design, construction, and operation of buildings based on open standards and workflows.
