ArchiCAD gives users the ability to create great architecture and increase productivity. From day one, ArchiCAD has been designed by architects for architects, and over the years it has gradually become more and more refined to allow its users to better: Focus on design, Manage change, Evaluate design alternatives, Collaborate, Coordinate.

ArchiCAD offers a different approach to your workflow process which gives you more control over your design, while maintaining accuracy and efficiency in documentation. While you raise walls lay floors, add doors and windows, build stairs and construct roofs this Building Information Authoring Tool creates a central database of 3D model data. From this you can extract all the information needed to completely describe your design complete plans, sections and elevations, architectural and construction details, Bills of Quantities window/door/finish schedules, renderings, animations and virtual reality scenes. That means while you're designing, ArchiCAD is creating all the project documentation so there's little repetitive and tedious drafting work. And unlike designing in 2D software, the Virtual Building approach also means that you can make changes at any time maintaining the integrity of your documents, without risking costly errors or costing you productivity.

ArchiCAD 13 revolutionizes BIM collaboration with its active BIM server based next-generation Teamwork solution. ArchiCAD 13 also delivers mission critical productivity improvements to further polish its best-in-class BIM design and documentation workflow. ArchiCAD 13 introduces the GRAPHISOFT BIM Server a first of its kind solution for model based team collaboration. Industry-first Delta Server technology reduces network traffic to a minimum for instant and reliable data-exchange both within the office and over the Internet.

Features

Sharing project information BIM-modeling poses a team of designers challenges: the implementation of BIM-design a large scale architects often have to "nip through the bottleneck" for access to the project and document management. ArchiCAD 13 is the first in its field GRAPHISOFT BIM-server - to control access rights at the request of and access to the project teams of any size both in the office, or via the Internet.
Speed Through the use of ArchiCAD 13 joint environment for a long time to wait for the synchronization server is left in the past. Our leading-edge Delta Server technology dramatically reduce network traffic, so that team members can work together to BIM-projects in real time. This same technology makes BIM-projects are accessible through conventional Internet connections from virtually anywhere in the world.
Data security Data corruption due to network failure or breakdown of equipment represent a great danger to the CAD / BIM-managers: a simple computer malfunction can literally destroy the work of the whole office. But reliable system architecture BIM-SERVER ensures the integrity of the BIM-project at any time. Any errors in the data fails jobs are blocked, protecting the integrity of the project in the network.
Technology A new approach to team work in ArchiCAD 13 with access to individual elements on demand, and conflict management at the server level, combines the flexibility of 2D technology with a high level of coordination of the simulated world. Companies can use their human resources much more efficiently with a dynamic and centrally-controlled process of designing.
Productivity ArchiCAD 13 continues the tradition of improving the productivity of the program with each new version. In the new version took into account the wishes of users to further improve the program ArchiCAD. Impressive list of improvements to enhance productivity
Design drawings in the cells of tables Preview doors and windows can be associatively annotated directly in the interactive window table. Just this one feature allows designers to save significant design time.
Orientation of In ArchiCAD 13, your project is aligned, as you need: simply expand the view on the screen at right angles. Now you can easily edit the diagonal wings, while your annotations will be automatically adjusted to the final orientation of the plan.
Smart "soft" insulation Despite the fact that there are fillers since the arrival of CAD, the design of soft insulation in mixed structures have been problematic. The problem of soft insulation in ArchiCAD 13 is solved for 100%: not only for 2D, but for 3D documents.
Improved management of Functions of the overall projection models help to control the display and to operate library facilities at the project level. Part of a special library project can now be easily stored in the project file, ArchiCAD, completely eliminating the phenomenon of "missing part of the library," what happened every time of the library is not loaded with the project.
Improvements to work with DWG ArchiCAD 13 has made significant progress in the development of DWG I / O. New features include improved control of layers and the ability to export multiple layers in a DWG file.
Communicating with engineers ArchiCAD 13 BIM supports the classification of elements as a load-bearing and non load-bearing structures for more accurate export to programs used by civil engineers. Thousands of standard steel are now available in ArchiCAD 13.

ArchiCAD success story BIMx

We are getting 3 days of work done all at once. The floor plan created literally created the 3D model at the same time. Then it is only clicks away from being laid onto sheets for print and review. I love the team project too, where multiple people can work on the same project all at once.

Pros

I love that this BIM 3D imaging software can be used on a designer’s Mac book pro or similar Mac product. I love the user interface compared with its competitor (revit) that seems more geared towards engineers rather than designers. This is a product for the dreamer and the designer!

Cons

I dislike the folder hierarchy on the right hand side that allows for an eventual print. Of course I am still getting use to this.

Very useful and friendly BIM software

You should try this software, it's amazing an once you try this you won't like to choose another one. The options and the world you discover is priceless. Another plus is the BIMX models... They're another way to experience the building and to "live it" like you're on it.

I have solved 3D modelling problems that i had with another software, that make my work fast and better.

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.

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.
