GRAPHISOFT introduces Grasshopper – ARCHICAD Live Connection 2.0 to simplify the BIM workflow
GRAPHISOFT recently launched Grasshopper – ARCHICAD Live Connection 2.0. This newest version facilitates the Rhino and Grasshopper users to be associated with a supreme BIM software package on both the Mac and Windows operating systems.
The combination of Grasshopper and ARCHICAD unveils new world of opportunities, by means of design, form-finding, optimization, and management of complicated projects.
With Rhino – Grasshopper – ARCHICAD (RGA) connections, the architects can experience the benefits of three powerful software environments to close the gap in the design process at the initial design phase. Algorithmic design workflows in Rhino and Grasshopper provide groundbreaking capabilities sustained behind the biggest community of algorithmic design enthusiasts and critical third-party developers expanding the Grasshopper development platform.
The latest 2.0 release of RGA radically develops new levels of smart workflows for ARCHICAD users and similarly Rhino and Grasshopper users in architecture. With the inclusion of the new “Deconstruct” function, the architects will be able to utilize their BIM models as a sort of building apparatus or “backbone” for their design; applying the RGA architects add algorithmic design logic to Grasshopper that can bring drastic changes to building elements (floors, roofs, walls, openings, etc) in due course.
Basically, this method allows the designers and architects to set up elementary design logic in BIM (in AC), for example the base geometry of the building, and spread that with intelligent design details to be available later but more significantly abides by changes in the core design.
Another useful feature is the capacity to employ Grasshopper to generate custom GDL Objects and then arrange them in their ARCHICAD project right away.
The newly-generated library parts are arranged in ARCHICAD’s Embedded Project Library and all the probable modifications in design which are created Grasshopper will be immediately delivered through the ARCHICAD project.
