.: 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 project.
Priority Based Connections
Structurally Correct Details out of the Box
Priority Based Connections, together with Intelligent Building Materials, automatically provide structurally correct sections and details.
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 Providers
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 BIMcomponents.com.
Integrated Design, Visualization and Analysis Workflow
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 technology.
