GRAPHISOFT’s BIMcloud Solution goes far beyond basic cloud services offerings available on the market today. It is an all-round cloud-based collaboration solution providing the complete software layer necessary for deployment on premises as a private cloud solution or in the public cloud as a cloud service. Thanks to its unique set of features, it is the only cloud solution that offers a true model-based BIM collaboration environment for companies and projects of any size. With the help of its mobile integration through the cloud, all stakeholders of the design-build process can actively participate in the collaborative work. *TO BE RELEASED IN THE US WITH ARCHICAD 18 IN Q2, 2014*

Single curved surfaces, also known as developable surfaces, are extremely important to modelling in various fields like marine design, architecture, product design, and art works. They help reduce manufacturing costs and tooling, yet no other software allowed designers to use them in a straightforward way with a high degree of precision and control. Evolute's software enables users to create developable surfaces between arbitrary 3d curves with a push of a button.

EvoluteTools PRO is a versatile paneling, geometry optimization and processing toolkit for freeform surfaces. Features include panel seam design and optimization, panel fitting (plane, cylinder, cone, developable, etc.), developable surface optimization, panel nesting for cut-off minimization, flat panel repetition maximization, (sub)structure optimization, production process management, and toolpath computation and G-code output.

Current prototype is a 5” phone containing customized hardware and software designed to track the full 3D motion of the device, while simultaneously creating a map of the environment. These sensors allow the phone to make over a quarter million 3D measurements every second, updating its position and orientation in real-time, combining that data into a single 3D model of the space around you.

Grevit allows you to create BIM elements from Revit and Autocad Architecture directly in Grasshopper and send them to your target application. Unlike other Grasshopper Revit Links this one supports multiple programs, no further files are created and the configuration is very easy. Assemble your BIM Model in GH with simple BIM elements. A Send component serializes the BIM elements and sends them via TCP/IP to localhost or a remote Revit/ACA instance where the Model is assembled automatically. The Revit/ACA Model can also be updated according to geometry changes in Grasshopper.

Dynamo package that provides a growing list of Dynamo nodes for commonly used computational design techniques and other helpful nodes for data management. Some of these nodes replicate key nodes found in the Grasshopper version that are not yet included in Dynamo's core.
