ARCHICAD 23 – BIM in an INSTANT
Watch the ARCHICAD 23 world premiere from Las Vegas
BIM in an INSTANT
and Beam tools
ARCHICAD 23 enables architects to model faster and create accurate construction details and quantity estimations for reinforced concrete, complex steel, timber, and composite beams and columns. Complex columns, curved and haunched beams can now be modeled and documented to meet graphic and representation standards. Beams and columns can be displayed using various projected and symbolic views and cover fills.
Niches and Recesses
ARCHICAD 23 introduces a new Opening tool dedicated to model and coordinate project design voids, recesses and niches — as horizontal, vertical or slanted openings across elements, element groups or even across stories. Such openings are important for project coordination as they are equally relevant for architects, engineers and consultants and must be documented by architects and by engineers. Openings can be modeled, scheduled, and documented using intuitive tools, and shared using open IFC standards.
One-click photo-realistic renderings with Twinmotion
ARCHICAD 23 allows architects to experience real-time rendering and photo-realistic visualization with the seamless workflow of the Twinmotion live connection. Thanks to Twinmotion's state-of-the-art rendering solution, creating real-time photo-realistic renderings is now extremely fast and easy, while real-time synchronization enables architects to edit the model and make design decisions on the fly. All qualifying ARCHICAD 23 license holders are entitled to Epic Games’ upcoming enhanced version of Twinmotion, free of charge.
Work smarter not harder
Renewed Solibri connection
ARCHICAD 23 enables seamless code- and constructability checking at any stage of the design. The updated add-on automatically detects and sends only those elements that are changed in the ARCHICAD model, resulting in faster round-trip collaboration.
Enhanced dRofus connection
ARCHICAD 23 allows architects to capture and organize client planning requirements and use these to validate and propose design alternatives. The dRofus database enables designers to collect and handle planning rules and design data with ease, even when working on large and complex projects, like hospitals, airports and universities.
Rhino-Grasshopper-ARCHICAD live connection
The new Grasshopper Deconstruct Component can be used to extract ARCHICAD element surface data as a design reference. With the help of this function, changes to the core design scheme in BIM will automatically update all linked design details generated via design algorithms in Grasshopper.
Faster response times
ARCHICAD 23 puts a special emphasis on offering an uninterrupted flow starting from launching the software, accessing project data and navigating one’s way through the Building Information Model. This is achieved through a combination of raw performance optimization, streamlined workflows and reduced file sizes.
