RFA & RVT Geometry Exchange Add-on for ARCHICAD 21
The RFA & RVT Geometry Exchange for ARCHICAD 21 enables ARCHICAD users to import RFA (Revit Families) into their ARCHICAD project as objects including doors and windows. It will also enable ARCHICAD users to hotlink, import and export RVT geometry (Revit projects) in and out of ARCHICAD. This is not a replacement for IFC workflows but intended for comparing imported RVT geometry to an ARCHICAD model and exporting RVT geometry for comparison to a Revit model.
This ARCHICAD Add-on is available for FREE from our Store. It is supported on both Mac and Windows platforms. Please visit our FAQ page. Sign up for our Newsletter, and follow us on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, YouTube and LinkedIn!
BIM6x Template Kits for ARCHICAD 21 - FREE!*
The BIM6x Template Kits for ARCHICAD 21 are the culmination of decades of ARCHICAD implementation experience and are based on the feedback of thousands of users, with ongoing support from GRAPHISOFT. These are the most powerful commercially available template kits available anywhere and we are proud to offer a solution to meet any budget.
The BIM6x Starter Kit is an entry level, but still very powerful solution, that is FREE to download and easy to use! This kit is great if you intend to download the GRAPHISOFT ARCHICAD Trial Version from myarchicad.com or have already installed this free architectural design software. Perhaps you have purchased ARCHICAD and are just starting out - this is the ARCHICAD Template kit for you!
But the true power of a pre-linked ARCHICAD template system is realized with our flagship solution - the BIM6x Power Kit. A whopping 766 views are linked onto 366 layouts, comprising Marketing, Schematic Design, Design Development & Construction Documentation Sets. This template includes all the typical phases and documentation sets to handle a four story building. The BIM6x Power Kit also includes the comprehensive 216 page BIM6x Power Manual 21 that explains everything in great detail and the three-story, fully modeled, data-rich BIM6x Power Project 21, provided for you to inspect and discover how a real building goes together and links into all the documentation sets. Look inside for a Preview! Two other templates are provided for cataloging standard details and making modules for your kit-of-parts. And supplementary files, such as Work Environments, Favorites, Folder Structures and more documentation means you get everything you need to succeed.
Already have a great template? That's fantastic! The more users using truly great templates the better! There's always ways to improve though and with ARCHICAD being such a complex piece of software, we suspect you may learn more than you think from our kits, especially the BIM6x Power Kit, which is so much more than just a single template file! For the cost of a few hours of research, we think you're bound to find new features that could save you significant amounts of time and improve the quality of your work!
Please visit our Kit Comparison Page to see the differences between the Template Kits!
All of our ARCHICAD 21 Templates are based on the US Commercial Template, but do have metric settings for International users and can be customized for commercial projects. All templates are available for immediate download from our Store. You could be discovering a whole new world of ARCHICAD within minutes!
