Explore a New Sustainable Star

The newest tool in GRAPHISOFT’s BIM software tool box will be unveiled this year. The EcoDesigner Star will make it possible for architects to use ArchiCAD’s building information model (BIM) directly as a building energy model (BEM). This abilty makes streamlined collaboration between designers and energy consultants a cinch. EcoDesigner Star will also offer standard-compliant energy analyses on the BEM and produce a detailed building performance report, all within the familiar ArchiCAD design environment.

Become familiar with the brand new EcoDesigner Star building energy modeling solution through an upcoming webinar – available in two U.S. time zones for your convenience.

The webinar will use the M Labs research center, designed by Eurobuild, as an example. Eurobuild specializes in the design of low energy buildings and was one of the first design teams to utilize the easy-to-use, accurate, and streamlined EcoDesigner Star energy analysis workflow to generate reliable building energy evaluation on the M Labs project, at every stage of the design workflow.

    Is this function already on ArchiCad 16?

    • Marianne Sims

      No. EcoDesigner Star is a new software, it’s more advanced than the built-in Energy Evaluation functionality in ArchiCAD 16.
