ARCHICAD 22 delivers design tool improvements and introduces enhanced design workflow processes. These represent significant performance improvements and productivity enhancements to its core design processes as well as to multidisciplinary collaborative workflows.
ARCHICAD 22 is focused on improving the architectural design and documentation workflow for building façades. In addition, it introduces significant improvements to its construction modeling, information management and 2D performance.
Façade Design Remastered
ARCHICAD’s remastered Façade Design workflow provides a flexible design environment for architects to create external or internal façades and elevations using modular structures and hierarchical, easily customisable patterns while ensuring adherence to local requirements for documenting and listing.
The Rhino–Grasshopper–ARCHICAD Toolset connects the best available tools, on both Mac and Windows, filling the gap between conceptual design and Building Information Modeling. The new “De-Constructor” function enables you to use a reversed data workflow and channel ARCHICAD element data to the Rhino-Grasshopper platform. As a result, architects can perform design optimization and validation using the vast set of Grasshopper and Rhino extensions.
ARCHICAD 22 allows you to use logical expressions to derive new properties and property values that depend on the element’s own parameters. This new function greatly enriches the information – or “I” component – of BIM. Its automatic workflow lets you define any calculation rule as an element property value and update it automatically, without time-consuming and error-prone manual data entry. The results can be used in ARCHICAD for tagging or filtering elements, and presented in any graphical, tabular or model output, governed by mathematical, logical and text handling operations – like the functions found in standard spreadsheet programs.
ARCHICAD 22 introduces significant performance improvements, focusing on a smooth and truly responsive 2D panning and zooming navigation experience for projects of any size. Generation of complex element fills, cut- and cover surfaces are “GPU-accelerated.” Multiple cores of the computer’s CPU are further enhanced with a patent pending algorithm to utilize the changing needs of continuous – panning or zooming – navigation in the background. Ultra-high – 4K and 5K – resolution monitors offer much sharper display of details on Windows OS as well.
ARCHICAD 22’s Parametric Profile Editor combines the power of parametric design with the freedom of graphical profile creation. Create more intelligent Profiles for Walls, Beams and Columns, by defining parametric edges in the Profile Editor. This will allow the offset of individual or multiple edges centrally for the Profile Attribute or at the instance level - either graphically or via element settings.
ARCHICAD 22 includes Maxon’s latest (R19) CineRender engine, allowing architects to utilize professional visualisation processes and features without leaving ARCHICAD. Now, stereoscopic, spherical renderings can be created by combining multiple cameras, to achieve 360° or dome-renderings.
ARCHICAD 22 supports the import of geometry representation of double-curved, complex geometry elements, the non-uniform rational basis splines (NURBS) from IFC4 files. Properties and quantities of components (composite skins, complex profiles, multibody object parts) can be exported for quantity take-off and cost estimation applications.
Training is a vital step in the effective use of any software. EDUBIM™ is the ARCHICAD BIM continuing education academy for beginners, intermediate and advanced users of ARCHICAD. Based on a small monthly or annual subscription fee, the EDUBIM™ Academy includes weekly live classes of GRAPHISOFT SE certified training programs in BIM and ARCHICAD, support materials, videos, discussion forums and direct contact with a personalized BIM mentor.
The subscription to EDUBIM Academy is based on a small monthly fee that allows members to access unlimited contents and training. Select the best option according to your needs or get in touch with us through edu [at] simbim.es or at 932936672 or 848440571
