ArchiCAD 19 Launch event - Cape Town by MultiCad & TotalCad
ArchiCAD 18 - Join the Creative Flow
"BIM innovation has been shifting from adding new features to introducing innovative new workflows — this is exactly what ArchiCAD 18 offers end-users," said László Vértesi, Vice President of Product Development at GRAPHISOFT. "With ArchiCAD 18, we pinpointed the most important user requests related to workflow issues with the clear goal of providing our users with solutions that keep them in the creative design flow with as little disruption as possible."
"We are delighted that GRAPHISOFT has decided to integrate CineRender into ArchiCAD 18 - offering a bridge to CINEMA 4D for users who wish to add even more sophisticated graphics and animations to their projects," said Harald Egel, Managing Partner and CEO of MAXON.
GRAPHISOFT SA is proud to announce the FREE exchange program of WIBU dongles to CODEMETER dongles for all it’s SSA clients in SADC. The dongle exchange is aimed at replacing all WIBU dongles used by SSA clients in SADC, as these dongles offer limited programming flexibility and most importantly, these dongles will not be compatible with future versions of ArchiCAD.
"Architectural visualization live online seminar"
In my career I have been using ArchiCAD since version 6.5 for mainly design development and documentation. Between working hours and lost sleep, I would take my ArchiCad documentation model and love to spend long leisurely hours setting up lighting and materials, placing furniture, landscaping, etc and rendering my projects. Some rare occasions the rendering was on commission for a client, but mostly it was to satisfy my itch to create beautiful renders.
