GRAPHISOFT, a leader in Building Information Modeling (BIM) solutions for architects, has started shipping ARCHICAD 20. Information is the most valuable part of BIM and ARCHICAD 20 helps designers to bring out the most of it, the developer says.

Brand new Graphical Favorites provide excellent visual feedback about saved element settings with automatically generated, colored 2D or 3D thumbnail previews—available instantly for every Tool. Additionally, ARCHICAD 20 brings project visualization to the next level by updating the CineRender Engine and enabling more accurate handling of “free-form” (Non-Uniform Rational Basis Splines) shapes.

Finally, the fully refreshed user interface maximizes working area; the clean and modern tool and command icons look sharp. Tab-based navigation keeps you where the action is: right in front of you.
