This is cool.
Keeping track of the changes between ArchiCAD versions is never easy. Not everything is as headline-smashing as the Morph Tool, Integrated Energy Evaluation, or (to look farther into the past) Teamwork 2. If you do some research, you can find ArchiCADwiki pages that talk about the changes in ArchiCAD 16 (and earlier versions). Or you can read forum posts where users share all the undocumented tweaks and improvements they’ve unearthed: some of the little things that matter to those of us in the trenches but don’t always make it into the change guides.
While all those routes are great, they fail ‘The Boss Test.’ You know what I’m talking about. If you send your boss a bunch of links to websites talking about why you’ll be more productive with the latest version of ArchiCAD, I would wager none of those websites will get looked at. You need a simpler solution. One spot where you can easily see the highlights. Where all the wonderful features that have been added since ArchiCAD 10, 11, 12, etc. are collected into one clear, graphic diagram. Something simple that anyone would enjoy exploring.

Well here’s your answer:
On this one webpage you can toggle a slider and see what’s changed between ArchiCAD 16 and every version since ArchiCAD 10. There’s pretty pictures and clear, concise text. Like I said at the beginning, this is very cool. And for those of us on ArchiCAD 16, it’s a great way to both stroll down memory lane and review some recent changes that we forgot about. You know, those recent changes (from ArchiCAD 12 or 13) that you told yourself you’d implement on the next project and then forgot. Well here’s your reminder to incorporate some ‘new’ old tricks.
