ArchiCAD Virtual Building Models Made Accessible for Anyone – Anywhere

Interactive Game-like Environment for Exploring BIM Models Created in ArchiCAD

Budapest, February 17, 2009 - Graphisoft, the global leader in Virtual Building™ solutions, today introduced an interactive Virtual Building Explorer solution for ArchiCAD 12.

The Graphisoft Virtual Building Explorer (VBE) allows architects to present their virtual building projects in a revolutionary new way. It combines the fun and easy navigation of a first-person video-game with the power of intelligent virtual building models to let users easily share designs with colleagues and partners.

Users can navigate through building information models (BIM) using different graphical renderings, such as Hidden Line, Shaded Open-GL and Global Illumination. Self-running navigation environments can be saved and provided for clients, consultants and builders who then can freely explore the entire virtual building without holding a license of VBE or ArchiCAD.

“The best thing about the Virtual Building Explorer is that building elements keep their intelligence even in this navigation environment,” said Miklos Szovenyi-Lux, Vice President, Product Management at Graphisoft. “You can filter elements by switching layers on and off, you can make accurate measurements in the model and you can query detailed information of building elements with just a single click.”


The English, German, Hungarian and Japanese language versions of the Virtual Building Explorer ship immediately; further language versions will ship in the coming weeks. For more detailed information about the Graphisoft Virtual Building Explorer product, please visit its product website.
