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.

The ArchiCAD – Master Only Layer was created by the Cadimage Tools in ArchiCAD 17 before for the Cadimage Keynotes Tool. This is no longer required in ArchiCAD 18 as the Keynotes Tool now has a smarter way of handling its placement and style. Previously you would place a placeholder object on each Master Layout on

ArchiCAD, ArchiCAD 16, ArchiCAD 17, ArchiCAD 18, Tip of the Day

If you have a project that you find particularly slow to navigate or work in 3D this may be due to the model having a large number of polygons. Polygons are the 2D shapes that are pieced together to form a 3D model… and there can be a LOT of them in a model.  A

ArchiCAD, Spotlight on ARCHICAD 19

ARCHICAD 19 reads point-clouds, providing faster, error-free building surveys by using the latest 3D scanner laser-survey technology, eliminating all errors due to manual data input. Refurbishment projects typically start with a time-consuming building-survey phase that may involve manual measurements and the creation of a digital building model. But now 3D scanners – representing the latest
