Vico's Virtual Construction Software Suite is a highly integrated 5D solution designed specifically to bring the benefits of BIM to construction companies. The software synchronizes the 3D virtual construction model, estimating and scheduling data and helps construction firms determine how best to construct buildings. The Virtual Construction suite covers project constructability, estimating, cost management, schedule planning, procurement, and change management processes.
Cinema 4D 10
Maxon's high-end free-form modeler application with full animation and rendering capabilities. CINEMA 4D's intuitive interface and logical workflow make it possible to dive in and be productive quickly.
Now with the bi-directional I/O capabilities via IFC or native file format, the architect and the structural engineer can use the same Virtual Building model. A structure designed in this same model can be used for stress analysis as well reflecting automatically the changes effectuated by either parties.
This add-on to ArchiCAD allows architects and principals to focus on creativity at the earliest concept phase of any new project, knowing that their designs can be automatically imported into the Virtual Building environment.
Starting with ArchiCAD 12, Graphisoft will cease the development and distribution of MaxonForm. Technical support for existing MaxonForm licenses will continue to be available for a period of one (ending on March 27, 2009). The ArchiCAD 11 version of MaxonForm will be available until August 1, 2008. To ensure that creating free-form shapes continues to be possible for our users, we are releasing a free CINEMA 4D add-on that allows seamless data exchange between ArchiCAD 11 and C4D R10 10.5.
Now the tools exist for architects to face a commercially sound choice of delivering analysis services and designs, or waiting for governments to enforce new regulations.
The ultimate tools to easily create high quality, still renderings and movies, bringing fast, "one-click" radiosity to the desktop.
Google Earth Connections
the essential tool to access Google 3D Warehouse directly from ArchiCAD or present your design solution in its virtual context in Google Earth.
IFC open standards
Architects can safely work in ArchiCAD without fear of being isolated from consultants, clients or other specialists using other software because of the IFC industry-wide information sharing commitment
ArchiCAD's wide range of productivity tools enhance your workflow and help concentrate your effort on creativity. This page lists products with which you can extend the functionality of your standard ArchiCAD software package.
