ArchiCAD Software


 

ArchiCAD by Graphisoft is a building information modeling (BIM) solution designed for architects, designers, interior designers and urban planners. The product caters to small and midsize businesses and is available both in cloud-based and on-premise deployment options.

ArchiCAD features conceptual design, which enables users to calculate floor area in a construction plan. The product also features a visualization module, which allows users to extract still images and animations for a building plan. ArchiCAD’s automatic drawing generation provides users the tools to extract standard documents such as building views, sections, elevations and 3D documents.

ArchiCAD features Solibri Model Checker, which analyzes the building information model to identify potential design weaknesses and clashing components. It also ensures that the designs follow recommended BIM standards. Users can also estimate the energy requirements and costs for a model.

ArchiCAD offers integration with different construction systems, such as Revit, AutoCAD, Navisworks, Tekla BIMsight and Allplan Engineering systems.

Pros

We use both ArchiCAD and AutoCAD in house, and the former is definitely a solid piece of drafting software. It provides perspectives and 3D views instantaneously, and the rendering engine produces high quality renders.

Cons

The customer support takes a while to get back to support tickets which can lead to lost productivity and revenue depending on the issue.

Not my top choice for a CAD software, but it is a fine option and is cheaper than my top choice.

Pros

Not a bad interface, and it is very fast and easy to use after you learn the ins and outs of the program. IFC support is good as you can export and import to many other CAD softwares.

Cons

The learning curve is steep, and some of the program seems a little outdated. The fact that you cannot have multiple viewports was very frustrating to me.

I spent part of my time each day providing drafting support to our designers, and ArchiCAD was an easy program for me to learn even with minimal drafting experience. The support documents and online resources helped me overcome any learning obstacle I came across.

Pros

ArchiCAD is a great CADD program that simultaneously creates 2D and 3D drawings/model. The real time modelling and ability to fly through your structures provides a new depth to our presentations for clients

Cons

While ArchiCAD is great for BIM purposes, exporting a model with a lot of content/layers/families ends up creating a lot of layers when viewing a .dwg file in another program.

Overall, we're very happy with ArchiCAD and would recommend this to any SMB focusing on small to medium sized commercial or residential projects.

Pros

We starting using ArchiCAD to compare the feature set to other CADD software packages on the market. The value for money of ArchiCAD can't be beat and it has all of the drafting features a person could want.

Cons

Exporting to other drafting programs has some interesting quirks, though this could just as easily be blamed on the other programs.

Pros

ArchiCAD is very complete, light, intuitive and with excellent quality of representation, even because it is aimed exclusively at Architecture. But I believe that the biggest differential of it for the competitors is the freedom of customization of the project, not limiting it in design depending on the resources or by complexity, being much less bureaucratic. "

Cons

Its does not have a MAC version yet, so you need to run Parallels Windows, that can makes your computer slower

I was skeptical about ArchiCAD at first, however for the minimal amount of drafting I do, this is great!

Pros

I absolutely love ArchiCAD! The ability to create 3D buildings directly from 2D drafting is phenominal! And due to recent changes in the AutoCAD pricing structure, ArchiCAD looks like it may be the go-to drafting program for designers.

Cons

It's not as feature filled as other drafting programs, however given the change in perpetual licensing for competitive software, the value for money of ArchiCAD can't be beat.

Overall, my experience with ArchiCAD was awesome. I would recommend it to designers

Pros

I have used this software for my design needs for the last one year and the value I have gotten from it it insurmountable! The software offers a nice practical 2D and 3D experience when doing the models. It also offers numerous tools which when combined, one is able to bring out an excellent image just like a pro. With proficiency with the software, one is able to maneuver so fast and with so much ease that the software actually reduces the time required for a drawing by more than 70%. It was easy for me to learn the operations as they all are practical and well organized on the screen.

Cons

Some starters may find it challenging to work with the numerous tools the software offers. It also requires some advanced skills and knowledge about designs.

It is used to add construction data, through the software you can see the development of the work. It allows modifying the data that is added.

Pros

ArchiCAD is a good tool for those companies that are developing architecture projects. The reason is because it allows specific designs and the development of the work, from the beginning to the end.

Cons

You have to add personalized data, so only reliable users should enter. The price is very expensive, which is negative for users.

Day by day i'm started feeling more connected to the software without comprising my design, explaining my design to my clients through this medium (ArhiCAD software) is always makes my confidence level up.
It's a good way to start your career.

Thank you Graphisoft

Pros

As an Architect it is important to have a good tool with you & i guess ArchiCAD is the first choice. as a young and aspiring architect i always wanted give a meaning to my design, This software help me to get a more practical approach to my work from the beginning of my design, I can work in more details of my project while managing it's 3-D model effortlessly. More control over model while drawing in 2-D is a plus.

The more you will use it more will connect with the software.

Cons

not much but the document manager is bit more complicated, it could more user friendly it will make our more easier.

ArchiCAD allows the user a great deal of specificity when it comes to the 2D and 3D look of different objects, walls, doors, etc. Used in coordination with BIMx, it is an outstanding tool for combining visualization and documentation.

Cons

Given that there is such a high level of allowable customization, it is not as easy to use "out-of-the-box". Without a more highly specified internal, firm-created template, there is a high learning curve to get CDs to look the way you want them to look.

This package is feature rich and is well supported. While there are nowhere as many users, at least in the US, as there are for the industry standard, it seems to me gaining in use - probably because of marketing to students. Cost is much more reasonable if you can manage without having the industry standard software.

Cons

It is harder to collaborate with many engineers and other consultants that typically use the industry standard. It does support files created with other CAD packages, but it will never be as seamless as having everyone on the same platform. That said, with limited or no support between versions of the same package from the industry standard, coordination can still be a pain.

The first hand benefits obtained from using ArchiCAD, are way importants.

The way of getting familiar with the work ambient is so easy, the palletes and menus are very easy to configure, and once you get familiar with it, the worflow is almost intuitive, being this a highlight because it increases the productivity on many levels.

Another thing that is so beneficial is the project management and organization features availables on this software. It allows me to do changes, revisions and modify many things with few clicks.

I can extend on this review explaining on so many levels how this software has helped me to increase my productivity, even with my social networks, because it has helped me increase the amount of likes on my instagram profile given the quality of the renders produced on this application, but the reading could get so extense that I prefer to resume it on few words: you all should definitely try this software, and you'll see how amazing it is.

Pros

How to begin this review? This software is so delightful! Actually, this software is my first option on BIM world. The render engine quality is amazing and very likely and customizable. This is an AMAZING OPTION, an AMAZING PRODUCT, the best choose.

In its features, this software it's an adventure, the more you enter the menus and options, the more you get enchanted.

One of the best things on it, it's the fluency on the model management and the views, the control on every level of the model, the customizability on the menus.

Frankly, this is a great option.

Cons

The dislike about this software? Actually i have minimum dislikes, the only thing I'd recommend to the developers of ArchiCAD would be that the document generator could be more friendly, like other drawing CAD applications, that would make more easier the process of finishing the tasks. Oh, and another thing that I don't find very likeable is that the IOS verson of the bimx is more practical than the pc one.

Pros

Great program, the initial capabilities of this software allow you to create anything you need for your project including structure and facade. Juvenile looks but really performs great, comparative to all other modeling programs.

Cons

It tends to lag on me from time to time, but that may be due to my computing specs. All in all still a great capable program.
