ArchiCAD 17

ArchiCAD 17 contains significant enhancements and additions that simplify the modeling and documentation of buildings even when the model contains an unprecedented level of detail. ArchiCAD’s end-to-end BIM workflow allows the model to stay live till the very end of the project.

Priority Based Connections
ArchiCAD 17’s brand new Priority Based Connections put a real ROI on the work invested in the creation of the Building Information Model, by automatically providing construction documentation level sections and details.
ArchiCAD users can develop structurally correct details and simplify the modeling and documentation of buildings, even when the design contains an unprecedented level of detail.
ArchiCAD’s end-to-end BIM workflow allows the model to stay live until the very end of the project, saving considerable time at the construction documentation phase.

Intelligent Building Materials
The appropriate and consistent use of building materials is crucial not only when developing the final construction documentation sets, but also when creating building energy analysis reports.
New, intelligent building materials ensure correct graphical representation of materials in sections (cut fills), element surfaces in 3D views, and thermal properties throughout the building energy evaluations.
Cut fill pen colors can be globally defined and applied to any ArchiCAD construction element in the project. This not only simplifies the user interface, but also allows the same material to be used consistently throughout the design project.

Floorplan based 3D Documents
With a single click, create a 3D Document based on the Floor Plan: a section view, based on a horizontal cutting plane in the Floor Plan window. This type of 3D Document shows the cut part of the model, including sections of vertical structures (e.g. walls, openings). Interface and settings are based on the 3D Document.
