Not long ago, GRAPHISOFT announced the release of a public beta version of a Rhino-Grasshopper-ARCHICAD connection. This development fills a gap in the design process between early stage design and building information modeling. Native file format support for Rhinoceros found in ARCHICAD already lets designers open and save Rhino project files of any size or complexity – the extension of this compatibility makes the benefits of using BIM at an early design phase more accessible.
Now GRAPHISOFT invites you to get to know this industry-first, bidirectional “real-time” connection – in a live online webinar. Scheduled for October 6 the webinar will introduce GRAPHISOFT’s ARCHICAD – Rhino – Grasshopper Connection. Participants will learn ways to use their favorite algorithmic design tool (Grasshopper) in combination with professional BIM software (ARCHICAD) through a best-in-class iterative design workflow and see how it is easier than ever to explore multiple design variations, create and fine-tune building details and structures using algorithms without exchanging files.
The Rhino-Grasshopper-ARCHICAD connection offers a unique design workflow, helping to explore a large number of design variations, and create and fine-tune building details and structures using algorithms without exchanging files. It complements GRAPHISOFT’s native file format support for Rhinoceros that enables designers to open and save Rhino project files of any size or complexity with ARCHICAD. By extending the existing natural link between Rhino and Grasshopper, the new tool empowers architects to start and modify their designs in any of the three design environments — Rhino, Grasshopper or ARCHICAD.
The webinar will present how these tools assist the design process using two new design workflows:
- Rhino – ARCHICAD workflow, allowing designers to exchange models between Rhino and ARCHICAD;
- Grasshopper – ARCHICAD workflow, allowing architects to create algorithmic design in BIM environment.
