This week, the 2012 AIA National Convention and Design Exposition takes place in Washington D.C. at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center. The convention provides a wide array of exhibits, user sessions and presentations from leaders in the industry and is an ideal gathering of architects, designers and firms discussing strategies and technologies to build faster and smarter.
Stop by Booth 2209 and be among the first to to experience ArchiCAD 16 and live demonstrations of the latest version of GRAPHISOFT’s flagship BIM software package.
When you see ArchiCAD 16 demonstrated, you’ll understand why GRAPHISOFT considers it the best BIM-integrated workflow for sustainable design straight out of the box. Spending additional funds on add-on solutions will be a thing of the past with ARchiCAD 16, since it turns the architectural building model directly into a building energy model. ArchiCAD 16 makes us of state-of the-art automatic model geometry analysis function; which works on complex building elements (profiled wall, Shell, Morph, etc.) to create a new level of energy modeling freedom.
Top design and technical experts will be on hand to explain how GRAPHISOFT’s array of software solutions helps firms adapt to the evolving world of Building Information Modeling. Monte Chapin, GRAPHISOFT Business Process Leader, North America and Yanni Alexakis, CSI, Int’l Association AIA, GRAPHISOFT Product Manager, will discuss how the OPEN BIM movement meets industry’s demands for interoperability and interdisciplinary collaboration. The upgraded BIM Server™, Cloud-integrated model sharing, and support for the IFC 2×3 Coordination View Version 2.0 for facilitating Open BIM will be on display as well.
It is fast and reliable – see it in person at the Convention!
Visitors to the GRAPHISOFT booth will also see the latest enhancements to the revolutionary presentation and communication tool, BIMx for ArchiCAD 16. BIMx provides a dynamic way to share architectural designs on a mobile device or tablet. Now, with ArchiCAD 16, cloud-integrated model sharing service is available for BIMx users. Attendees will be provided 3D glasses to enhance their experience as they explore designs through BIMx in a 3D environment that supports real-time 3D navigation using familiar navigation techniques. GRAPHISOFT will also demonstrate important workflow and productivity updates to its growing portfolio of solutions. From 11.00 AM-2.00 PM on May 17th and 18th, the new e-SPECS Specification Management product suite integration with ArchiCAD will be featured.
