GRAPHISOFT, a leading Building Information Modeling (BIM) software developer for architects, released its intelligent Grasshopper-ARCHICAD Live Connection for the Mac OS. This industry-first bidirectional live connection lets Rhino and Grasshopper users connect to ARCHICAD on both the Windows and Mac operating systems.
The Rhino-Grasshopper-ARCHICAD connection enables architects to leverage Rhino, Grasshopper, and ARCHICAD to fill the gap in the design process between the early stages and BIM.
Now, Mac users can also access this connection. With tools beyond seamless bidirectional geometry transfer, basic geometrical shapes can be translated into full BIM elements, while maintaining algorithmic editing functionality.
According to Robert McNeel, CEO of McNeel & Associates, "The development of Rhino and Grasshopper for Mac OS is a response to our customers around the world who wanted to work with our products on their favorite platform."
Peter Temesvari, Director of Product Management at GRAPHISOFT, says, "We're pleased to offer this revolutionary algorithmic design solution. Combined with the best architectural BIM solution, running on designers' most popular platform, it ensures the best design experience possible.
