Check out this YouTube video demonstrating the power of the Rhinoceros® – ARCHICAD connection, announced in April of 2015. The connection enables ARCHICAD users on both the Mac and Windows platforms to export a model created in Rhino, and then import it into ARCHICAD.

The free software, (downloadable here) Rhino connection for ARCHICAD includes a plug‐in for Rhino 5 and an add-on for ARCHICAD 18. It allows complex shapes created in Rhino’s NURBS-based engine (or acquired through 3D scanners) to be brought into ARCHICAD.

This video was created using the model of an entry Nikken Sekkei submitted for the Guggenheim Helskinki Design Competition.

    I am writing because i am interested in downloading the Archicad Rhino connection. I am currently using archicad on MAC. The only file i see i could download is for Windows. Where can i find the MAC installer?

    Thank you very much.

      If I recall correctly, I think you won’t see the Grasshopper Connection menu until Grasshopper is running.

    I can not find a link to install a .gsm / .lcf converter for Rhino 6 to archicad21.

    I would kindly request a link. I can find a converter for rhino 5 but is not working on rhino6.

    Thank you
