.: DESCRiPTiON :.
ArchiCAD 17 contains significant enhancements and
additions that simplify the modeling and
documentation of buildings even when the model
contains an unprecedented level of detail.
ArchiCADÆs end-to-end BIM workflow allows the
model to stay live till the very end of the
Priority Based Connections
Structurally Correct Details out of the Box
Priority Based Connections, together with
Intelligent Building Materials, automatically
provide structurally correct sections and
Industry-first Background Processing
Large/Complex Models to Stay Responsive
To further enhance productivity, ArchiCAD 17 takes
the next revolutionary step in multi-core
processing to support the creation and
manipulation of large complex models with
industry-first Background Processing Support for
faster generation of complex model details.
Extended IFC Model View Definitions
OPEN BIM to Support National Standards
ArchiCAD 17 supports Coordination View 2.0 and
expands capabilities for defining new IFC data
such as Concept Design BIM 2010 (required by GSA
(US), Statsbygg (Norway), Senate Properties
(Finland), FM Handover (required by COBie), and
others. This includes currency unit export,
calendar date type IFC properties and IfcSystems
Assignment Support for system type elements such
as MEP systems.
Open Interface to External BIM Component
Direct access to an extensive collection of
Manufacturer Content on BIMobject.com offers users
a comprehensive range of intelligent BIM
components available both in ArchiCAD 17 and on
Integrated Design, Visualization and Analysis
Improved MORPH Tool and Real-time 3D Cutting
Planes give extra control of ArchiCADÆs 3D
modeling environment. Inclusion of fully
functional BIMx in every installation enables
users to share BIM projects with their clients in
the form of interactive BIM project environments;
further improved Energy Evaluation supporting
multiple thermal zones allows users to evaluate
their designs with standard compliant
