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."


GRAPHISOFT, introduced version 20 - the latest version of its industry-leading BIM application - back in 2016 and Architosh covered it previously. However, in this review type feature the editor takes a 'deep dive' into the three top focus areas in version 20: (1) the new user interface, (2) graphic overrides, and (3) the "i" in BIM.
