ArchiCAD15 enriches architectural forms available for designers to unleashtheir creative minds, and it also expands the scope of the BIM workflowto include renovation & refurbishment projects.
Enriched architectural forms
Theevolution of forms has always walked handinhand with the evolution ofstructures. From the simplest barrel vaults to the most sophisticatedrib vaults, the architect has always aspired to combine durability,utility and beauty (Vitruvius). These very principles can be seen in thefinest examples of Modern architecture as well. ArchiCAD 15 expands thedesign capabilities of its BIM tools, including new Shell structures,to support the broadest spectrum of architectural shapes and forms foundin both classical and modern architecture.
New definition of design space
Theevolution of the design process has gone through at least as manyrevolutionary steps as the forms and structures themselves. During thecourse of the past few decades, architects have gradually left theflatlands of 2D sketching for the exciting highlands of designing in 3Dvirtual spaces. The increase in freedom brought about by the thirddimension, however, adds a new degree of difficulty to orientation inspace as well. ArchiCAD 15 introduces 3D guidelines and editing planesto revolutionize the 3D space definition, making the perspective viewthe natural, 3D environment for building design.
Renovation workflow support
Theadvent of modern technology has significantly increased the lifecycleof a building. As a result, renovation and refurbishment projects arenearly equal to the volume of new buildings in most of the developedareas of the world. ArchiCAD 15 expands the design scope to renovationand refurbishment projects with native BIM design and documentationworkflow support all the way through.
Bestinclass BIM workflow
Inaddition to the impressive list of new and refined design tools andworkflows, ArchiCAD 15 includes improvements to its IFC interface andOPEN collaboration workflow with engineers, full 64bit support for theMac OS, and improvements to its parametric object libraries as well.
