Have to still check out the modelling features but I'm most pleased about the fact that they've added a workflow for renovation projects.

It looks like with the shells I'll be able to model the last few things I couldn't figure out how to do with complex profiles. Very nice.

And no-loss autosave? I like that. A lot. No more freakouts from coworkers about losing work. Until they mess up their backup procedures.

Looks like a nice upgrade.

The first time i did not pay (in many years) for an upgrade contract, and the first time they bring a really good version!!

Why do i NOT wine now? Because this is a really good upgrade (at least judging from the videos!!)

I'll keep an eye for future videos about shell capabilities, but my guess is that if AC had some other major improvements, they would be shown right away... so with that said, while it looks great to have new modeling tools, as far as I've seen, they are still DUMB modeling tools. What good does it do to model the USAFA Cadet Chapel in that way if I later realize I need to change something in the first pyramidal shell? Erase every copy->edit->multiply->edit->multiply->edit->multiply->multiply->rotate all over again each time a change is needed?

Don't get me wrong... the new tools and options are great, the upgrade is far better than AC13+AC14 combined; but since AC has always kept an eye on Auto*** like forever for tools and improvements, why haven't simple relationships been made between elements **cof cof walls to next level minus floor thickness cof cof**? I mean, auto*** implemented simple paramateric relationships between elements since... what? v2010?

I would have expected at least some kind of instancing, or true bi-directional dimension associativity. The shell modeling tool takes us a step closer to modeling freedom, and I know we will all see great uses of that, but can I convert that shell into a curtain panel system? What ir the change freedom of the completed object? These are the questions to be asked at the same time we jump while cheering new tools.

And don't get me started on GDL.....

Anyway, I'm happy the way things are going, even if it means waiting another year to see the modeling toolset completed (because we all know improvements are made over two versions).
Best regards.

I do share the same impression(s) "sincev6".

It would be great to get some feedback from the betatesters about the new features of Archicad 15.

Are you guys out of your NDA yet?

HA!

Just wait and see if it actually works in Teamwork

I have never had an autosave recovery successfully maintain its link to the BIM Server in AC14 - they always comes up 'Detached', and often with more out-of-date elements you've been working on than the Reloaded project gives you ....

I was wondering about that as well?
How will the new version fare up with the BIM Server, TW issues?
Has this been tested thoroughly?
GS - please advise.

Apparently still no import of Sketchup 3D warehouse objects into MAC OSX version. Or their not saying. The lack of up to date real object (such as name brand appliances, etc.) is a real drag.

Man....No 3dwarehouse SKP file import....geez, that's a bummer. We use MAC's in the office. I use a PC (laptop) at home. I have to now use my PC, import the file, convert it to a GSM file in my pc, then save it...then send it to my MAC in the office and open it there....bumski.

Did you finally allowed the creation of angled curtain walls with Polyline-Chained method in ArchiCAD 15? Because until now, angled curtain walls were allowed only with Polyline-Single method.

If you did not, then this is a huge omission !

One small detail that has been underrated, and has a huge impact in the way I model (using SEOs intensively), are the connection grips. These small gizmos appear every time you select an elements that operates or is operated by a SEO (or a roof cut), and lists the element that are related to it.

You can even isolate those elements in the editing window, and manage the relationships directly through the produced list.

One small addition:
The connection grip lists all associative connections the element is involved in, including Trim to Roof/Shell and Join Wall to Curtain Wall operations. All these can be managed from the connection grip.

AFAIK that is fixed in 15. Turning of the TW remotely, turning Off the TW Host, having one TW project connected to one BS and another TW to a different BS on the same computer at the same time and copy/pasting between the projects and no crashes, or becoming detached.

One problem with Autosave in TW during the Beta is that it is instantaneous so if you do something that crashes AC going back to the autosave will probably be no help. In those cases I have just deleted the Autosave and kept working without loss of data.
