Importing GIS

Anonymous

Does anyone out there know anything about importing GIS information into Archicad? File types are...

.dbf
.prj
.sbn
.sbx
.shp

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

You will need to use the file's native software to save out the content in a format that AC can read.

I've been able to use a program called Arcv2CAD to convert GIS files to DWG then import the DWG into ArchiCAD. It's Windows only but you do get 5 free uses before you need to purchase the program.
There were some rumors that ERSI and Graphisoft were working on a plug-in (about the same time as the Sketch-Up plug in) but nothing seems to have materialized.
