ArchiCAD 15 - Broaden Your DESIGN Horizons

ArchiCAD 15 enriches architectural forms available for designers to unleash their creative minds, and it also expands the scope of the BIM workflow to include renovation & refurbishment projects.

Features

Enriched architectural forms The evolution of forms has always walked hand-in-hand with the evolution of structures. From the simplest barrel vaults to the most sophisticated rib vaults, the architect has always aspired to combine durability, utility and beauty (Vitruvius). These very principles can be seen in the finest examples of Modern architecture as well. ArchiCAD 15 expands the design capabilities of its BIM tools, including new Shell structures, to support the broadest spectrum of architectural shapes and forms found in both classical and modern architecture.
New definition of design space The evolution of the design process has gone through at least as many revolutionary steps as the forms and structures themselves. During the course of the past few decades, architects have gradually left the "flat-lands" of 2D sketching for the exciting "high-lands" of designing in 3D virtual spaces. The increase in freedom brought about by the third dimension, however, adds a new degree of difficulty to orientation in space as well. ArchiCAD 15 introduces 3D guidelines and editing planes to revolutionize the 3D space definition, making the perspective view the natural, 3D environment for building design.
Renovation workflow support The advent of modern technology has significantly increased the life-cycle of a building. As a result, renovation and refurbishment projects are nearly equal to the volume of new buildings in most of the developed areas of the world. ArchiCAD 15 expands the design scope to renovation and refurbishment projects with native BIM design and documentation workflow support all the way through.
Best-in-class BIM workflow In addition to the impressive list of new and refined design tools and workflows, ArchiCAD 15 includes improvements to its IFC interface and OPEN collaboration workflow with engineers, full 64-bit support for the Mac OS, and improvements to its parametric object libraries as well.

Probably the best on offer

BIM modelling, architecture design, visualisation and documentation

Pros

A mature but still rapidly advancing product with a long pedigree, and about as intuitive and powerful as it is possible for a BIM package to be within the current state of the art. From what I have seen/experienced; faster, more powerful, more intrinsically scalable for large projects, and more pleasant to use than all the alternatives.

Cons

Built-in architectural visualisation rendering is only average - would prefer a high end integrated game engine renderer, such as Unity was included by default, rather than relying on separate visualisation packages or plugins (competing platforms are no better to be fair)

Great

We pretty much do all of our drawings using Archicad. We've come so far with this program and we are now able to standardize it in our office making it easier for new employees to come and learn it quickly.

Pros

I like that it gives you a lot of freedom when it comes to graphic representation of architectural drawings. Very user friendly and shortcut keys allow for quick modeling. The Explorer feature is one of the best for navigating through 3D. The new rendering mechanism that was obtained in Archicad is amazing!

Cons

That being said about the freedom of graphics. The numerous amounts of settings can be a bit overwhelming at times. and Other times you don't know which setting you're looking for
