Installation & Activation

Marton Parlagh

Step 1. Downloading

Make sure to download the appropriate ModelPort package for your operating system and ARCHICAD version! (It runs in DEMO mode until you activate it with a License code!)

To use the ModelPort add-on you must be running:

Windows 64 bit (Windows7 or later) or Mac OS X (Yosemite or later),

and GRAPHISOFT ARCHICAD (21 or later).

Step 2. Installing

After downloading the proper ZIP package open it and copy the “ModelPort” folder with its content into the ARCHICAD “Add-Ons” folder.
Please Note that none-English ARCHICAD versions can call the “Add-Ons” folder differently!
Once the ModelPort folder is placed into the “Add-Ons” folder the add-on will be recognized by ARCHICAD automatically.

Next time when you start ARCHICAD the ModelPort add-on will show up on your ARCHICAD Menu Bar.


Step 3. Activating

By activating ModelPort you can access all its features without limitation. In order to complete the activation you will need a license key obtained from the Online Store. The license key will be delivered to you by email.

Once you have purchased a license key and installed ModelPort, launch ARCHICAD, select ModelPort and click “Import 3D model”.


You will see the below screen. Complete activation by clicking the “Activate ModelPort” from the About box.


Then enter your license key and email and click Activate Now.



The license key gives you access for a limited time period (typically 1 year). When you are still in the expiration period you can extend your license with additional 1 year. period but only until your actual license is still valid. After that you have to require a new license.

A ModelPort license is bound to an individual on a machine.
