Graphisoft’s mission is to empower teams of building professionals to create great architecture

Graphisoft develops award-winning software solutions, learning programs, and professional services designed to support clients, large and small, across the architecture, engineering, and construction industry.

Used worldwide, Graphisoft’s technologies enable teams to collaborate, design, visualise and document projects of all sizes using open BIM workflows to get the job done.

Software solutions include Archicad, the industry-leading Building Information Modeling (BIM) software solution for architecture and design; BIMcloud, an innovative cloud-based collaborative environment; and BIMx, the award-winning mobile app for BIM visualisation.

Graphisoft is part of the German-headquartered Nemetschek Group of companies, made up of 13 brands serving the AEC industry including Allplan, Bluebeam, Maxon and Solibri.

In June 2021, Graphisoft merged with Data Design System (DDS), adding the mechanical, electrical and plumbing (MEP) expertise of DDS through its open-BIM product family DDS-CAD, to create a strong and customer-focused product portfolio of BIM solutions for multi-disciplinary workflows.

Design with Archicad

Archicad’s powerful built-in tools and easy-to-use interface make it the most efficient and intuitive BIM software on the market.

It empowers creators to develop and compare design alternatives, automate documentation, work in teams and deliver professional presentations using the latest visualisation techniques.

Archicad is made by architects, for architects. From an initial conceptual model to a full Building Information Model, Archicad combines the best in flexible modeling and algorithmic design to help architects deliver great buildings to the highest standards in the most efficient way.

Collaborate with BIMcloud

Graphisoft’s BIMcloud solution enables secure real-time collaboration between project teams. Whether team members are working around the corner, or around the world, open standards and workflows mean that collaboration is straightforward, regardless of the software being used.

With BIMcloud, real-time access to the shared model throughout the design process keeps all team members in sync at all times.

Visualisation tools bring designs to life

Archicad’s professional architectural visualisation tools translate conceptual designs into compelling imagery of future buildings.

From free-hand effects with sketch renderings, white render for communicating design intent, through to Maxon’s CineRender for photo-realistic renderings, Archicad delivers them all. In addition, a direct link between Archicad and Twinmotion creates high-end virtual reality visualisations.

BIMx bridges the gap between the design studio and the construction site, delivering presentation and coordination capabilities for all project stakeholders. Available to run on any mobile device, BIMx features the ‘BIM hyper-model’ – a game-like navigation tool that helps anyone explore the building model in virtual reality.
