Archicad 25 comes with many significant improvements which enhance the overall performance. This article will talk about the Additional Improvements that will make a huge difference and hopefully will ensure a better user experience.
1. Line popup shows names in alphabetical order
The line popup has been updated. Previously, it was necessary to rely on the preview of the line type when selecting a line. Therefore, now the names are always visible, and sorting has been changed to alphabetical order, making it easier to find and choose the desired line type.
2. Updated Surface and Fill Settings
Surface and Fill Settings have been updated, and "Vectorial Hatch" has been renamed "Cover Fill".
3. Edit multiple Layer Combinations at once
In Layer Settings (just like in Attribute Manager), you can now select multiple Layer Combinations and edit their status simultaneously. Show/hide, lock/unlock, and set 3D view display and layer intersection group for multiple Layer Combinations at a time.
4. MEP Label
A New MEP Label has been provided with MEP-related element data, such as MEP System or duct diameter. You can also change the general settings such as text and pointer as of any other Label Type.
There are some special options for this label type within the Symbol Label Custom Settings tab. You can change the displayed data, meaning that you can choose whether to display the value only, name and value, prefix and value. The prefix for each data type can be set at the related field, and each info type can be turned on and off.
You can change settings for the displayed dimensions and add additional properties (up to 5 rows).
The display order can be easily changed, allowing you to customize the label further. Moreover, instead of using Project Preferences settings, you can overwrite it and use mm-s instead. The labels can be placed on any MEP elements, both on 3D documents or 2D View.
5. Track Changes, Model Compare: Structure parameter
The new "Structure" parameter is now a separate checking option, so you can filter for changes in Building Material, Composite or Profile only (separate from other Geometry/Positioning changes).
6. Object Settings: Elevation and 3D preview can be rotated independently
Elevation and 3D Previews can now rotate independently, without modifying the plan rotation settings, the plan view will still rotate the element.
7. Section/Elevation Marked Distant Area renamed to Fade Distant Elements
In Section/Elevation Settings Dialog, the “Marked Distant Area” setting is renamed as “Fade Distant Elements”.
8. Support for Rhino 6 and 7
Archicad 25 offers support for both Rhino 6 and 7. Previously in Archicad 24, Rhino 5 and Rhino 6 were supported.
9. Export Building Material Classifications as IFC Classification References
