BUDAPEST, Hungary, Oct 3, 2018 – GRAPHISOFT, the global leader in building information modeling (BIM) solutions for architects, announced that Solibri has released the latest version of its widely-adopted ARCHICAD Link extension. As part of the Nemetschek family, Solibri and GRAPHISOFT work closely together to offer customers the very latest benefits in interoperability. The ARCHICAD Link extension allows fast BIM updates and the use of Solibri Model Checker (SMC) while working in a real-time design scenario.
With this integration, ARCHICAD users can easily access Solibri’s Quality Control features and achieve higher design quality earlier in the process. Thanks to the link, the two solutions work in an integrated way. It is no longer necessary to save files and upload back and forth between programs; simply design, check and amend as necessary.
Once downloaded, an SMC icon is added to the main menu bar in ARCHICAD. With a few clicks, the user can export the BIM model into SMC. From there, the user can highlight model elements and have them replicated in both solutions. If design faults are found by SMC, the same elements can easily be selected in ARCHICAD for corrections to be made. SMC also offers the opportunity for the user to find the component and see the properties of any element selected in ARCHICAD. These properties include location, quantities, profile, relations and property sets. You can also select what components to export by layers or by floors.
“As part of the Nemetschek family, we focus on doing what’s best for our shared customer base. To us, that means real interoperability – offering direct value in our users’ everyday workflows,” said Ville Kyytsönen, Solibri CEO.
“Having access to Solibri’s unique rule-based quality control technology in such a smoothly integrated way will help our customers deliver better designs in a shorter amount of time,” said Peter Temesvári, director of product management at GRAPHISOFT.
Solibri ARCHICAD Link supports ARCHICAD versions 16–22. For more information, please visit the partner solution page.
