BUDAPEST, May 14, 2019 – GRAPHISOFT®, the leading Building Information Modeling (BIM) software solution provider for architects and designers, has announced the release of Archicad 23, the latest version of its award-winning BIM software solution.
Archicad 23 vastly improves perceived performance of essential processes such as software startup, file opening, working in multi-project environments and switching between different views of the BIM project.

The Archicad-Solibri connection provides fast and automated code- and constructability checking. The updated add-on automatically detects and sends only those elements in the Archicad model that have been changed, resulting in faster round-trip collaboration; the quality of the data and the model is also improved.
Shell and Morph Input Dialogs are simplified and icons help users to identify input fields. The Info Box panels of the Zone and Label tools are updated; Geometry- and Construction Methods can be displayed separately. Sunlight Settings provide live feedback about the cast- and self shadows, while Sun Study animations can be displayed with customizable date and time options, and location stamp.
Archicad is available on both Windows and Mac platforms. Data exchange between the two platforms is fully supported through compatible file formats and collaboration methods such as Teamwork, so they can be used even in mixed environments.
