Downloading it now! The UAS Downloads Menu has disappeared, is it because it is being updated?

Check the URL has UK at the end: and this will show the UAS Downloads subheading

Thanks. Do you know when the Library Part Maker and Additional Surface Catalogue, Libraries etc will be available for download? We're looking at rolling out AC26 asap, I've been testing it for long enough 😉

There is an error in the downloads page, it still says download 25, when you click on that it then gives you Archicad 26.

Thanks for the heads up! We are working on it currently to fix the link as soon as possible. Thank you for your patience.

See if this link works for you.  If not USA or INT, you may need to change the version code in the URL:

This hyperlink works, Karl! Thanks for sharing it!

Is it that problematic? Every year the same. "Download now!" and anything is every time messed up.

Is worse, it should be: "download now, you'll be able to use it one of these days, maybe next month"


No ARM version for the Mac?

Nope, sometime in the future. If we are lucky, before 27 comes out.

I hope not

They said preview version in 2 weeks, then "normal" release sometime in Q4 2022. yeah, non-constantly-crashing version in 27? 🙄 | actively using: AC25-26 INT | Rhino7-WIP | macOS @ apple silicon / win10 x64


i didn’t see it.. link?

Based on information from yesterday's event, there will be a Preview version of the ARM-native version in a few weeks, and the final ARM-native version is expected in Q4 of this year.

That is shocking! Q4? Really?  What the hell have they been doing for the past 2 years?

At this point there are no features in 26 that are worth the SSA.

This is surprising to hear.


As I went down the list all I could see was,,,,"Okay that's an feature that might be interesting, wait, have to be an SSA customer for that...."


So even SSA customers are feeling like it's not worth the upgrade.

Graphisoft really S-ed the bed on this one, didn't they?


Noemi, with zero hesitation, I can say the ability to organize attributes and layers using a hierarchical structure is my favorite feature. I've been dreaming of this for a long time. It's particularly timely since I'm re-doing my templates from scratch.
