ArchiCad has proven itself...

Pros

ARCHICAD generates with precision by its multiple tools a global vision in the 3D design and modeling of buildings, and other civil engineering works. The design and realization of buildings are modeled and realized with ARCHICAD.

Cons

The use of all features requires basic knowledge and time.

ArchiCAD is awesome!!

The ability to quickly illustrate an idea in 3D and present to a client for complete understanding of the design. Live 3D is virtually flawless in its ability to move about the model and make on-the-fly modifications.

Pros

Ease of TeamWorking ability, able to model as easily in 3D as in 2D and 2D in any elevated manner.

Cons

At first the learning curve was a bit steep and we seemed to have trouble getting work out the door while we were still learning the software, however that was 15 or so years ago and there are more learning and training opportunities available now.

Reasons for choosing ARCHICAD

Price point, ie. was originally not a subscription based product.... No need for custom built, over the top hardware. Not a Autodesk product!

Reasons for switching to ARCHICAD

Other software's tended to not be as stable or well integrated in the actual software, multiple crashes and lost work were common. The stability of ArchiCAD is quite remarkable and we have lost little to no work with the rare occasion when ArchiCAD does have a hiccup.

archicad helps you

in general it is a good program, I do not think it is the best and by far it is not the most used

Pros

It is easy to use, it is pleasant with the user, it has a vast library to use, it gives you a landscape more attached to 3D reality

Cons

It is not always compatible with the most used programs and not everyone has access to it, there is a similar program with the company that has the largest number of users dedicated to the 2D sector, therefore fewer users know how to handle it

Reasons for choosing ARCHICAD

it is the program that some clients request

A very good alternative to mainstream CAD softwares.

Pros

It is a very good software for collaboration tool where one can draw 3D model, sections,elevation in the same time.

Cons

Limited options for exporting to other platforms.

The best 3D and 2D modelling software

I enjoyed using Archicad software, because it can be used on both Interior and Architectural designs, and I recommend upcoming Interior and Architectural Designers to try it, because it also saves time, since it has a lot of coverage in the field.

Pros

I like the fact that, you can import new and trendy furniture and other items from other platforms, to improve both interior and exterior visuals or environment. The software also allows, the user to export the file to other rendering or technical software, and saves with their versions for ease use. It also allows the user to explore the 2D and 3D when working.

Cons

The software get slower after importing other libraries or external content.
