Grasshopper-ARCHICAD Live Connection Now Also Available for Mac OS Users

Date: Thursday, March 2, 2017

Developed by GRAPHISOFT, Rhino-Grasshopper-ARCHICAD connections allow architects to leverage the strengths of the three design environments -- Rhino, Grasshopper and ARCHICAD -- filling a gap in the design process between early stage design and Building Information Modeling (BIM). Now, Mac users can access this unique connection, offering tools beyond seamless bi-directional geometry transfer and allowing basic geometrical shapes to be translated into full BIM elements, while maintaining algorithmic editing functionality.

According to Robert McNeel, CEO, McNeel & Associates, "The development of Rhino and Grasshopper for Mac OS is a response to our customers around the world who wanted to be able to work with our products on their favorite platform.

“We’re pleased to offer this revolutionary algorithmic design-to-BIM workflow to our Mac users as well,” said Peter Temesvari, Director of Product Management, GRAPHISOFT.  “The most popular algorithmic design solution, combined with the best architectural BIM solution, running on designers’ most popular platform, ensures the best design experience possible.”
