Martyn Day reports on the world premiere of ARCHICAD 22 at the recent Key Client Conference in Budapest, covering the new features in the latest version, BIMcloud, key client presentations, as well as what makes ARCHICAD so unique among BIM software.

"ARCHICAD 22 will enable some exceptionally interesting façade designs from its customers, especially if used in conjunction with McNeel Grasshopper. The links with Grasshopper are going ever deeper and the demonstration of ARCHICAD with Grasshopper to conceptually explore a live design and make edits with real-time feedback should pique the interest of any existing customers as to how they could adapt their current workflows to reap the rewards."

The architects at HCF and Associates in Singapore have used this residential project to implement a BIM-integrated design process. From conception to construction, BIM has not only proven to minimize time and resource consumption, it has also had a positive impact on the architects' thought process and productive mindset.


The Center for Rhythmic Gymnastics project, by Moscow-based CPU Pride, won the “BIM 2016” Russian competition in the “BIM project: sports facilities” category. The project clearly demonstrates the successful use of the OPEN BIM approach in its design. “During the initial stage, we created a preliminary concept rather quickly, consisting of several completely different solutions, such as extraordinary forms, or a more geometric appearance maintaining a clear rhythm of the façade. We were able to develop the first 3D model in less than a month,” says chief architect of the Pride company, Elena Myznikova. The project is an excellent case study for the OPEN BIM approach.


Archisnapper has put together a list of the top apps for architects, and it's no surprise that BIMx tops the list. "If you’re using ARCHICAD, then you should consider BIMx from Graphisoft, an app that allows architects to present or share designs with clients and contractors. The app offers full control of your BIM projects, with a cloud interface for working on site. BIMx helps bridge the gap between the design studio and the construction site, sparing you the misery that comes from printing out plans." We couldn't agree more!
