GRAPHISOFT adds Generative Design with Rhino-Grasshopper Connection >

  • The Rhino-Grasshopper-ARCHICAD alliance lets architects and designers use Grasshopper’s algorithmic design tool with ARCHICAD BIM software using a unique iterative design workflow.
  • With this, GRAPHISOFT hopes to make BIM a more versatile design tool for architects.
  • By using the connection, BIM can be used before building elements are differentiated.
  • This design workflow stands out in its ability to help the user easily explore a large number of design variations.
  • The new tool integrates the traditional design process with a computational design approach.
