Powerful tool links early stage design to BIM
Graphisoft’s Grasshopper–ArchiCAD Live Connection, a bi-directional “live” connection between Rhino and Grasshopper to ArchiCAD is now available for both the Windows and Mac operating systems.
The software is designed to fill a gap in the design process between early stage design and BIM by allowing basic geometrical shapes created in Rhino to be translated into full BIM elements in ArchiCAD, while maintaining algorithmic editing functionality.
Users can download the free Grasshopper-ARCHICAD Live Connection plug-in for ARCHICAD 20 on Mac OS here.
