ARCHICAD 19 Review by AECbytes
Have you read the AECbytes product review of ARCHICAD 19? The review provides a comprehensive breakdown of new features – with a holistic view of how those improvements fit in to the overall goals of ARCHICAD. Having had the benefit of testing and reviewing ARCHICAD products since 2008, Editor in Chief, Lachmi Khemlani, provides a thorough, fair and mindful overview of the new features found in GRAPHISOFT’s BIM software. On her blog she writes:
This review explores the main developments in the new release of ArchiCAD, including its patent-pending “predictive background processing” capability that significantly enhances the speed and responsiveness of the application, the ability to open multiple views in tabs, point cloud support, smoother and faster 3D navigation with OpenGL, easier application of materials to surfaces, IFC improvements, and additional interface and documentation enhancements.
It also raises the provocative question of whether the never-ending quest for better speed, performance, and power from our BIM applications is simply encouraging the “do more and more” mentality in the AEC industry.
