Pros: I love the simplicity with which I can design a house in minutes with the minimum of 3D modeling knowledge.

Cons: Rendering quality need some improvements, and heavy scenes lead always to crashes and makes us lose a lot of time.

Pros: This package is feature rich and is well supported. While there are nowhere as many users, at least in the US, as there are for the industry standard, it seems to me gaining in use - probably because of marketing to students. Cost is much more reasonable if you can manage without having the industry standard software.

Cons: It is harder to collaborate with many engineers and other consultants that typically use the industry standard. It does support files created with other CAD packages, but it will never be as seamless as having everyone on the same platform. That said, with limited or no support between versions of the same package from the industry standard, coordination can still be a pain.

Pros: ArchiCAD is very complete, light, intuitive and with excellent quality of representation, even because it is aimed exclusively at Architecture. But I believe that the biggest differential of it for the competitors is the freedom of customization of the project, not limiting it in design depending on the resources or by complexity, being much less bureaucratic. "

Cons: Its does not have a MAC version yet, so you need to run Parallels Windows, that can makes your computer slower

Comments: I was skeptical about ArchiCAD at first, however for the minimal amount of drafting I do, this is great!

Pros: I absolutely love ArchiCAD! The ability to create 3D buildings directly from 2D drafting is phenominal! And due to recent changes in the AutoCAD pricing structure, ArchiCAD looks like it may be the go-to drafting program for designers.

Cons: It's not as feature filled as other drafting programs, however given the change in perpetual licensing for competitive software, the value for money of ArchiCAD can't be beat.

Comments: ArchiCAD has a tendency to create complex objects when exporting to other CAD program drawing formats. This can be a challenge for other firms when importing files into their preferred CAD programs.

Pros: ArchiCAD is a good alternative to pricier CAD programs, and it has a user friendly interface that any draftsperson would quickly adapt to.

Cons: It's not as feature filled as other CAD programs which, while that can be a blessing, does provide some challenges when working between programs and/or exporting files for other firms to use.

Pros: Great program, the initial capabilities of this software allow you to create anything you need for your project including structure and facade. Juvenile looks but really performs great, comparative to all other modeling programs.

Cons: It tends to lag on me from time to time, but that may be due to my computing specs. All in all still a great capable program.

Comments: ArchiCAD is great for beginning levels of design, however for complex projects and coordination between firms, AutoCAD is a better solution.

Pros: ArchiCAD is good for smaller architecture firms and individual designers. It gets the job done, however the file export and compatibility with other drafting programs (e.g. AutoCAD) leaves something to be desired

Cons: Exporting files to formats for other drafting programs often creates inconsistent entities in the drawings which cannot be read properly by other programs.

Pros: Good user interface; very clear and also enables quick a lot of user adjustment. Flexibility, ease of use and depth of project customization. Design in 2 and 3 dimensions simultaneously. Import and export projects with AutoCad, etc.

Cons: Too many object settings for each object makes learning curve quite steep. Not intuitive enough for quick design experimentation (a la Sketchup). Opening up files take a long time depending on your CPU.

Overall: This software is so delightful! Actually, this software is my first option on BIM world. The render engine quality is amazing and very likely and customizable

Pros: The main thing that I like the best with this software, is that the GUI is extremely user friendly and very easy to grasp. I was able to know how to get around this software within minutes of using it. I love visualization enhancement is the new 3D Surface Painter that enables users to apply different materials in a timely manner to model surfaces using drag-and-drop.

Cons: Most functions just seem old and out dated. The developers need to work on this. No spelling of the shortcut functions and no simple way of controlling building part types and other automation features you might find elsewhere.

Comments: Popular in Europe, ArchiCAD is the only BIM software I use in my design practice. The advantage of designing in 2 and 3 dimensions simultaneously allows me to be better at my job and provides an easier way to communicate design drawings to my clients. There is no comparison between ArchiCAD and AutoCAD or Sketch Up.

Pros: Flexibility, ease of use and depth of project customization. Design in 2 and 3 dimensions simultaneously. Import and export projects with AutoCad, etc.

Cons: Not as popular as AutoCAD, fewer free and for fee objects available. Deep knowledge is required to unlock all of ArchiCAD¿s powerful features.

Pros: I've used ArchiCAD in the past to do some 3D modeling and rendering visualization for architectural projects. However, in my experience using other 5-8 software on the same line, I think ArchiCAD in one of the most basic ones. You'll be able to create a project from scratch and do a fair/good quality rendering if you know how to use it.

You would also, learn how to be organized with layer management.

Cons: The compatibility with 3D model formats (the most known like 3DS, FBX, and OBJ don't really work great, as some of the textures may be missing during the export-import process.

Also, their customer service, can be a little painfull, just to get answers to common issues. You'll spend 30-45 minutes, to get a not much-convinced answer, that you could probably find by looking in the web.

I do not have a great experience with this software, but I think maybe it is a good software for those who are more involved in the Interior design or students to start in the industry because it gives you the tools to understand other software.

Overall: The most beneficial thing could be the ability to manage layers.

Pros: My experience is mainly in MEP and I like how easy it can be to adjust the default components in the libraries, without the need to add a new one. With other BIM softwares it is more complicated to adjust the dimensions of these components.

Cons:
It really is a software that I like a lot and I would recommend it on the competition, what I like the least could be a little the interface that does not look so modern, but as Softaware I do not have negative criticism.

Overall: Excellent for integrating construction disciplines in 3D and avoiding problems when installing

Pros: ArchiCAD is a highly functional 3D CAD / BIM system which will allow you to realise your architectural visions in the best possible manner.
It is relatively intuitive to use and it's use of 3D parametric elements makes modelling a breeze. Once you have mastered the basic 3D CAD capabilities there is also a world of BIM opportunities to discover as well. World class IFC interfaces make it easy to collaborate with other consultants.

Cons: There is not a lot to actually dislike about ArchiCAD, maybe if anything its tendency to crash occassionally. (But generally it is easy enough to recover from near where you left off...)

Overall: It allowed me to take my business from one where clients never really understood what it was they were getting to one where they knew exactly what they were going to get.

Comments: I work for a Design/ Build Firm and we use ArchiCAD for all of our design work. ArchiCAD makes our job much easier by linking different views and 2D with 3D, as opposed to AutoCAD which requires work to be manually translated to the different views.

Comments: I've been using AC since version 16 and I don't know where the hell I had been earlier being almost 20-year experience architect?! Since I've touched the application for the first time I've been having a constant nirvana! God Bless Graphisoft!

Pros: Feature-richness

Cons: Takes long to learn

Overall: I've been using ArchiCAD since a long time and couldn't work without it anymore. Especially when working in a team on a BIM model. Also cross-platform use is deeply integrated. Export/import to and from all the most common file-systems is supported.

Comments: as an architect and professor in the University of the Visayas. I'm happy we purchased 20 licenses(Archicad 18) and i was amazed about the performance and the intuitive of the said software. Right now i'm happy because some of my students are working abroad and they're using archicad in australia and singapore. Keep it up!!!

Recommendations to other buyers: none!!Great job!!

Comments: I have been using Archicad since version 7.0 and I'm always telling people about how powerful the program is! You can use it to draw a 100 square foot shed or a 100 story high rise building, the capabilities are practically limitless. My ONLY complaint is the stock objects such as furniture & landscaping for renderings are pretty basic and I would love to see Archicad develop their rendering objects more fully. I would also like to see possibly a fully functional simplified product available for light commercial construction and residential design.

Comments: Simply the best Architectural Software I have tried and used from "14 to 17", you need to use it in order to know what I am talking about, simply try it and you will never let it go! If only they can add construction take off! I am just waiting for my son to finish his architectural training this year in order to take advantage of all features of this great software, as my work schedule does not allow me to see/use all of its features.
