ArchiCAD has been on the market since 1984 and has firmly established itself as one of the best CAD software packages available. With a rapidly growing base now exceeding 100,000, ArchiCAD users need to keep pace with the latest developments of this flexible and powerful software package. Ongoing product development has broadened the program's spectrum of possible applications, and Bob Martens and Herbert Peter provide a comprehensive overview of its capabilities through an in-depth presentation of the software and description of the many tools, functions, and processes that can be used in professional, research, and educational contexts.
