ARCHICAD 19 - Leading the way in OPEN BIM
ARCHICAD 19 allows users to import the IFC model exactly as it looked in the original application in which it was created: "perfect geometry, minimal attributes."
Improved interoperability functions
IFC Spaces will always be converted to editable ARCHICAD Zones by retaining their original geometries; ability to override materials and representation styles of IFC model elements; IFC data mapping with library part independent GDL parameters; customizable property update function; and faster IFC data handling in IFC Manager.
Improved Collision Detection
Collision detection - using the separately-purchased MEP Modeler add-on - now works with all MEP-type elements and all imported IFC MEP model elements regardless of which MEP application exported the IFC model. Collision detection performance has been improved; it produces results considerably faster using multicore CPU basis to avoid slowdowns of your computer.
