ArchiCAD Vectorworks

Hello,

We just converted from VW to ArchiCAD. The rendering in ArchiCAD is much better than VW. But this is not what I would like to see improved in ArchiCAD. I would like ArchiCAD to be a powerhorse in the CAD realm. It is my opinion that you need a min. of 3 programs to complete a rendering.
1. 3D Modeling program-ie ArchiCAD
2. High End Rendering program-ie Cinema 4D, 3D Studio, Artlanits.
3. Image editor-ie Photoshop, Paint Shop Pro.

ArchiCAD is a great 3D modeling program. The developers should concentrate on improving this program for what is does best...BIM
Let the High end rendering programs develop the great, realistic looking renderings. Plus these programs let you do things such as material manipulation much more efficiently than ArchiCAD...as well as many many other things more efficiently

Just my 2 cents

I agree here. The ease of accurate modeling is archicads strength. Its what differentiates the program from others. It makes architecture fun. You remember why you got into this business in the first place.

For rendering I've been using the Advent AV works beta which works within archicad. very very fast. can't beat it for day to day work.

Not Advent, Abvent; same people who make Art•Lantis.

The download link for the ArchiCAD 8.1 version is at the bottom of the page.
