ArchiCAD 12: Multi-core architectural powerhouse


I have several consulting clients who are architects, all of whom use ArchiCAD to create stunning designs and manage the process of documentation. They're going to be very happy architects in July, since Graphisoft is providing multi-core support in the upcoming release of ArchiCAD 12.

In addition to divvying up those rendering duties to all 8 cores on your Mac Pro, ArchiCAD 12 has a slew of new features including:
  • A new tool for designing and documenting curtain wall systems
  • Partial structure display for sharing design info with engineers
  • Enhancements in the StairMaker tool
  • New fill management capability and translucent fills
  • 3D "Nudge" feature for moving elements
  • Align and distribute elements along a path or in a pattern
Graphisoft and ARCHVISTA Building Technologies are hosting a webinar on June 18, 2008 to demonstrate the features of ArchiCAD 12. While you'll need to contact an ArchiCAD reseller for pricing details, you can slice $500 off of your next ArchiCAD license by ordering the new software before June 30, 2008.

Thanks to Michael for the tip!
