Name: ArchiCAD Version: 20 Build 5025 / 20 Build 5027 Solo Update Released: January 26th, 2017 Developer: GRAPHISOFT OS Version: Windows 7 (64-bit) / 8 (64-bit) / 10 (64-bit) Web Site: http://www.graphisoft.com/ How to Install: 1). Instructions are included in ReadMe.txt if needed. 2). Thats all, Done & enjoy. Overview Allows architects, designers and engineers to view and develop detailed 3D models, providing a comprehensive set of object manipulation tools ArchiCAD provides you with a native building information modeling platform designed to help professional architects create realistic digital representations of their vision. Shape, edit and move surfaces in a user-friendly environment Combining ease of use with advanced modeling capabilities, this application can fasten the designing process, from the initial concept to the final architectural sketch and documentation level. The application comes with direct modeling capabilities, enabling you to create custom elements with any geometry type (so-called 'MORPH' objects) by editing, shaping and moving surfaces, corners, edges and parameters without any restrictions. The cloud-based BIM database provides access to a collection of thousands of GDL objects that can be included in your projects and managed using the built-in library. The powerful, yet comprehensive set of tools helps you focus on the design, while the necessary documentation (dimensioning, door / window schedules, layout book, floor, foundation or beam plans) is automatically created, without compromising any detail, even for complex projects. Effortlessly create new rooms and houses from scratch ArchiCAD enables you to manage building sections and plan rooms, interior and exterior elevations, custom materials, 3D textures, walls, stairs, columns, doors and windows with composite structures, as well as connections and solid element operations. Furthermore, you can create your own customized line types, vectors, symbols and images. Layer management, auto-intersection, object smoothing, partial display, advanced 2D drafting and advanced shadowing and lighting options are features designed to help you create fully interactive 3D models, with details about functionality and the physical structure. Furthermore, is allows architects to perform dynamic building energy calculations, based on model geometry analysis. A helpful and intuitive CAD tool for construction enginners Combining its 3D visualization capabilities with the powerful set of modeling tools, ArchiCAD enables you to create complex models in an intuitive working environment. Designed to help architects communicate their design to construction engineers, this application is capable of simulating the way a building is constructed, allowing architects to view design ideas come to life.
