Support for load handling and load-related data means architects and structural engineers can work together seamlessly without losing load-related information.
Powerful Design Presentations with Archicad
Create stunning, professional design presentations without workarounds thanks to Archicad’s powerful out-of-the-box presentation tools. Apply the same high-resolution surface textures on 2D views that you already use in 3D.
Greater Productivity in Archicad with Smart Selection
When architects work on complex BIM projects, it's essential that they can instantly find, identify, select, and zoom in to any building element across all views to select the element they need. Use Archicad’s multiple features and commands to easily find and select elements.
Accurate Schedules and Quantity Takeoffs with Archicad
Accurate quantity takeoffs, cost estimates, and high-quality documentation are crucial to the architect's workflow. Get more accurate building materials schedules and cost estimates thanks to new component properties.
Quick Graphical Quality Checks with Archicad
High quality architectural documentation requires architects to run multiple types of quality checks on their projects. Use Graphic Overrides, that are more flexible than ever thanks to the new option to choose custom RGB colors.
Native Archicad Survey Point
Any BIM project collaboration starts with ensuring that the project is correctly located. Archicad enables model-based open workflows between project stakeholders using different applications. A new built-in tool, the Native Survey Point is an integral part of the Archicad project.
Enhancements to Revit and Solibri Collaboration
Model-based BIM collaboration workflows between architects and other stakeholders rely on quick and easy model exchange and accurate model checking tools. Seamless collaboration with Revit is crucial for many architects. The RFA-RVT Geometry Exchange add-on is now built into Archicad.
