Just adjust the settings to any language, program, version or platform you want.

AUS Mac 25 is there.

You’ll only be able to get a copy of Archicad 26 for evaluation purposes. There is a free trial available.

Thanks Lee, I did download a Windows version of AC25 for evaluation a few months ago but that PC is over 13 years old now. I takes quite a while to fire up. I am seriously considering upgrading to 26 before the end of May. I want to see how good Redshift is at Rendering but I think I will need 26 anyway to test that out. From what I read Redshift was only a technology preview in AC25 and only available for GS forward clients as I understand.

That’s right. I think Redshift is still only available for Forward customers but if you get a license of AC26 now I believe it will come with a year of Forward and access to those features.

@mthd If Redshift is a key feature for you then check the technical requirements. I bought a high spec Mac in 2019 not long before Redshift was added and it wouldn't work with it. It required an advanced graphics card at the time.

All versions of Archicad back to 18 for all operating systems can be downloaded from the Graphisoft website.

If you don't have a valid license, they will run in demo mode only.

I hope my Apple M1 Max can handle it with it being rated at 7.8TF and equivalent to an 8GB video card apparently ?

The system requirements seem to indicate that it will work but that’s why I have to test it out first for low rise residential work.

Cheers Barry, thanks for the link.

 

I found that one yesterday but I couldn’t get directly to AC25 AUS for Mac ?

 

I did however get your link for AC25 AUS windows a few months ago but my windows machine only has a 2MB video card in it. Not able to handle Redshift.

My Apple iPad mini 2 is to blame because it’s IOS is still at 12 something. A 2013 model and so it needs upgrading but they will not let it go above IOS 12 at present.

 

Found it on my Mac.

 

Thanks again.

 

Edit: Redshift current limitations for AC25 & AC26

Are all these limitations still applicable in AC26 ?
