Archicad 16 Releases Integrated Energy Modeller in Latest BIM Tool
ArchiCAD® 16 released on 2nd on May, the
latest version of its premium BIM design software for architects.
ArchiCAD 16 introduces a comprehensive ecosystem of solutions to
ease the creation, sharing, and finding of custom BIM Components.
Built-in Energy Evaluation turns ArchiCAD 16 into the "greenest"
BIM solution available on the market today.
"Building projects - by their nature - contain numerous custom
building components and structures that may require modeling
capabilities beyond the standard BIM tools," said László Vértesi,
VP of Products at GRAPHISOFT. "ArchiCAD 16 introduces direct
modeling capabilities and cloud-integration to help users create
and find the custom objects, components, and structures they need
to make their BIM models complete," he continued.
SUSTAINABILITY - Industry-first Fully BIM-integrated
In today's environment, sustainability is an imperative for all
building projects. Contrary to conventional wisdom, the main
decisions influencing a building's sustainability features are made
by the architects and not by the building systems engineers.
GRAPHISOFT continues to innovate in "green" as well, uniquely
offering the best workflow for sustainable design, integrated in
its BIM authoring tool. The built-in Energy Evaluation
functionality of ArchiCAD 16 is similar to the former standalone
EcoDesigner™ product, but is based on entirely new technology (e.g.
zone-boundary based building model geometry analysis, analytic
weather data input option, etc.). This technology allows architects
to perform reliable dynamic energy evaluation of their BIM model
within ArchiCAD, relying on BIM geometry analysis and accurate
hour-by-hour online weather data of the building's location.
Together with ArchiCAD 16, GRAPHISOFT also delivers important
workflow and productivity updates to its growing portfolio of
solutions. These include an upgraded BIM Server™, Cloud-integrated
model sharing service for BIMx users with an active maintenance
contract, and support for the IFC 2x3 Coordination View Version 2.0
for facilitating OPEN BIM. ArchiCAD 16 will be released in
Australia late July 2012, with shipment to customers beginning in
the last week of July 2012. For more information about ArchiCAD 16,
