news from graphisoft…
ArchiCAD 14 will be available for purchase as of 1st June. Physical shipment of your product will start early July
as far as we can tell this version is very much focused on ensuring ‘information exchange’ with autodesk products (namely revit) via IFC 2×3 files. it seems that graphisoft is also providing the required ‘add-ins’ for this ‘workflow’ to work.
the possibility of displaying & tracking changed consultant information in 3d directly in archicad 14 is indeed a very interesting feature, as is the ‘detect collisions’ feature – although this is mentioned only very briefly.
