Spotlight on ARCHICAD 19, Tools

As some of you may already know, Graphisoft officially released ARCHICAD 19 this morning and so, we are very pleased to announce, that the Cadimage Tools for ARCHICAD 19 are also ready to be downloaded!

If your Cadimage Installer has already updated to V2 (which we released last week), you already have all you need to get the tools installed. If you haven’t updated already, just run the Cadimage Installer and it’ll update itself to V2 with just 1 click.

Just run the Cadimage Installer on any computer that has ArchiCAD 19 installed on it, and the option to install V19 tools will be available (along with V18 as well, if you have that installed too).

23-06-2015 5-22-06 p.m.

Note: if you aren’t a Cadimage Tools Subscriber, you will need to upgrade your tools to V19 before you can activate them, but until you do that, you can click on the ‘Trial’ button up at the top, and install trial versions of them to get right in to the action.

One of the reasons why a Door or a Window may not be collating in a schedule could be related to the wall it’s placed into. Go to the menu View>On Screen View Options> Wall and Beams Reference lines.
