Graphisoft has recently updated its ArchiCAD Connection Revit add-in that streamlines the dataflow between ArchiCAD and Revit through the IFC format.

ArchiCAD Connection has several main features:

  • “Improved IFC Import” has extra options compared to the native Revit IFC importer.
  • “Link IFC” merges IFC models into the current Revit project as a non-editable reference.
  • “Export to ArchiCAD” enhances Revit elements conversion to IFC for use in ArchiCAD.

ArchiCAD connection may be also useful for non-ArchiCAD users, because it correctly exports IFC with shared coordinates.

The add-in is available for download from Graphisoft Interoperability section after logging in.

Acting as BIM Manager with structural engineering in the background, I am keen on cutting edge technology. I believe that sharing and open source phylosophy would drive our AEC industry forward.
