For ARCHICAD 19, Graphisoft has extended its robust 64-bit and multi-processing technologies with background processing – an industry first for BIM. According to the developer, ARCHICAD 19 now offers lightning-fast response times and makes the program the undisputed speed leader in the BIM business. With ARCHICAD, you can model and shape freely, easily creating the forms you want, and change even complex elements in the most appropriate view.

The true potential of BIM is best realized through a team effort with several contributors collaborating on the same BIM data. ARCHICAD, with its full integration with Graphisoft’s BIMcloud®, offers industry-first, realtime BIM collaboration regardless of the size, location and set-up of the collaborating team. BIM and OPEN BIM bring an unprecedented level of coordination between different views of the 3D model, and among BIM models from various disciplines.
