AC 13 to AC 26

Hi all,

I was a AC user (architect) from ver. 9 to 13. I went into affordable housing development after that and retired a few years ago. However, my wife and I have just purchased property to build a house and will use AC 26 to design. Back in 13 I had purchased a custom library (Seattle) and was using Archisite, Door and Window Maker, Cabinet Maker, Artlantis, and so forth. Other than Artlantis, the other add-ons seem to be gone. Any suggestions as to what I may need to design a new house on a somewhat rolling lot! TIA

Modelling and documenting a house in AC26, you really shouldn't need any additional tools on top of what you get OOTB. The software has developed quite a bit in the last 13 years. 🙂 

 

That being said if there is a level of complexity in the design, you may need some additional tools to get you across the line.

ArchiSite - I think they're out of business

Door and Window Maker, Cabinet Maker - If you mean the DoorBuilder, WindowBuilder and CabinetBuilder objects that used to be sold by Theometric then CadImage, they're now owned and distributed by Central Innovation https://centralinnovation.com/Archicad/ci-tools/

ArchiTerra is now distributed by Eptar https://www.eptar.hu/architerra

 

With TwinMotion and other real time rendering applications, there is little need of Artlantis... your mileage may differ 🙂

Etc... like @Nathan Hildebrandt said, it has been a long and eventful 13 years or so... 🙂
