    1. Welcome

    We, Graphisoft, believe in the continuous innovation of our products and services. Therefore, we perfect our tools and workflows in each Archicad version to empower teams to create great architecture.

    2. Design

    Design freedom is key to creating great architecture. Organize project attributes in an intelligent, hierarchal structure to keep them clean and easy to understand and navigate through. Organize all the different types of attributes present in the project with the help of the new Attributes Palette. Navigate easily within the Archicad project using the Search function to remove repetitive tasks and add consistency among the tools. Create simple objects by using the Library Part Maker. Learn about newer, more flexible Archicad Library Elements regarding modeling and documentation. Experience accurate model and documentation representation of the Opening elements by introducing surface Overrides.

    3. Documentation

    Documentation that follows your great design. Edit and manage Graphic Overrides faster. Save time and avoid mistakes by using enhanced Auto texts in Archicad for great productivity and intuitiveness in documentation. Increase documentation efficiency and accuracy by using the enhanced Level Dimension Tool. Place multiple pages from the same PDF into model view or Layout in one go with the enhanced Selective PDF Import option.

    4. Visualization

    Visual presentation of your great design. Learn about the Additional Surface Catalog for Archicad 26. The catalog contains several hundred new contemporary surfaces with detailed materials.

    5. Collaboration

    Collaboration between Architects and Structural Engineers can now happen without Loads' data loss. Architecture starts with collaboration. Learn about Component Data Handling for IFC models with the improvements of Archicad 26. Use the Automatic Live Load Generation function for structural design purposes inside Archicad. Get to know the enhanced translator options for the Structural Analytical Format.

    6. Additional Improvements

    Get to know the new enhancements to BIMx (Model Format, Texture Export, Publishing Workflow and BIMx on Web and desktop). Get to see an overview about further development of Archicad 26 that are relatively smaller but can surely make a big difference for some specific workflows.

    7. Conclusion

    Thank you for completing the Archicad 26 Upgrade Training. This module will summarize the topics we have covered with the most essential enhancements and their benefits.
