Well, the AI Visualizer opens, and the code seems to be running fine on the terminal (at least following the user guide looks like it was supposed to be working)

Im using the Archicad 27 (Brazilian version if that matters) and a MacBook M2 Pro.

Any tips? Kinda new to archicad, been using it for a couple of months only


Meanwhile, I got a new MacBook Pro with Sonoma. Made a clean install of AC 27 and the AI add-on. It's working fine now (see some examples below).


My wishlist now:

- A complete description of the prompt structure. (how to say what in which order)

- More control of the generating process. 

- Usage of special Library elements

- Upload of my own material, scans, background images

- Create bigger resolutions

- Rendering cue on the same machine. For example: store the cue and let the Mac render overnight.


And: take a look here for reference:



Best regards,








They look cool.

I have only just installed AC27 and the AI visualiser today, so not sure what is going wrong.

I would like to avoid a re-install as I have just sorted out my work environment and installed all of the other add-ons.

I suspect it is something to do with the location of the AI engine.


Well as there is no debugging mode for users, we can only suspect. 


I will install it on another Mac (M1 iMac) to see, if I can render over the network (no good description). If this is working, I will try to set up a render server (on windows). So I can send the render job into a queue.


Concerning the hardware: my MBP has 32 GB RAM and the AI add-on is not using it completely and also its not using the CPU cores. Would be niche to add this, so the rendering would be faster. Now its about 7 IT/S (Iteration per second).

Hi there, I tested the AI too too......


On first installation it worked (What are your settings with a house you made?, because it made a second house with my settings !!???


..... When I want to restart AC 27 with AI Tool, it doesn't find the file.

The RUN file open macOS with Xcode and don't find the right connection......

I have been having difficulty getting the Terminal prompts to work, I am getting a cannot activate Python error message in Terminal, when I try to use 


Got it working after a bit of messing around in Terminal. It is pretty impressive.

Hi Andreas81ch,


We are sorry to hear about the issue, the download link works for us and we did not hear similar feedback. 

Please try to download the Add-on again, and make sure that your internet connection is stable.


There are no localized versions, the Add-on works on the GER language version of Archicad too (the AI palette is in English only).


Kind regards,
