Cigraph

Can anyone tell me what has happened to Cigraph? I have been using their add-ons for many years and want to update their Archisuite for Archicad but could not do so. Also, their vey excellent Architerra seams to have been taken over by Eptar. The product appears to be identical but it cost has quadrupled. 

 

I am sorry to hear that Fabrizio has died - I've had many email dealings with him over the years and he really understood Archicad.

Eptar has had the same tools for many years. I have no idea what the difference is... I feel like they are all the same coding, then someone else does the UI and sells it.

Cigraph does not exist anymore. I think they closed forever

Hermes

That's what I thought. However, their site still lists Archisuite for Archicad 25.

Is there any official announcment on this by Cigraph?

I had subscribed last year to Archiquant Plus which is what i called the best 5D upgrade to Archicad ever. The scheduling and cost options are fantastic and endless with great potentials. 

 

I am waiting for the 26 update and I sent a couple of mails without getting an answer.

This is really bad news. Hope it is not true!

If it’s so valuable as you all say why doesn’t Graphisoft Italy take the responsibility to develop these Add-Ons and sell them?

It maybe another roadmap for Cigraph tools.

They are so valuable that they should be implemented in the core of Archicad not just as addons. Especially Archiquantplus should be intergrated like Ecodesigner or  MEP.

@Botonis You can make a wish for this purpose we may find these features in Archicad as you say or even continue to be developed as Add-Ons, and sure me & @Lingwisyer , @hermzec , @KeesW are supporting your wish, good luck.

Well done @Botonis, I hope your wish becomes real and we use or continue using Cigraph tools as an add on or inside Archicad.

Here’s the link for the wish :https://community.Graphisoft.com/t5/Wishes-forum/Cigraph-Archiquantplus/td-p/358750

if I can invite @KeesW & @hermzec & @Lingwisyer to follow their wish.

Some news from Cigraph,
a guy who worked for them, released in 2015 told me that the servers are down as the building that houses them is about to be sold.
In addition, the CEO is hospitalized and the situation is currently stalled.
If I have other news I will come back to write to you
Hermes

Thanks Hermes.

Has there been any updates on CiGraph? 

On AC website it said "As of January 2015, Graphisoft acquired Cigraph’s Archicad distribution unit." 

Does this mean that AC will eventually offer CiGraph / very soon these add ons will be offered within AC as standard? 

There is a real need to have site modification tools as a standard within AC rather than just going for an add on. C should be able to stand on its own with good site tools for roads, sidewalks etc. 

 

I hope there's some good coming with AC27 regarding this but if anyone has any additional information to share please do.

 

Thanks

I wish I had some news but all my tries contacting Graphisoft Italia were unsuccessful.
