Google Earth, SketchUp, Rhino Connection

Whether you want to create presentations of proposed developments, share a building you’ve designed, or view a BIM model in context, you’ll find the combination of ARCHICAD, Google Earth, SketchUp and the Google 3D Warehouse a powerful way to express your creativity. With this intuitive interface, ARCHICAD users can not only import 3D information for use in their projects, but they can also publish their designs to the world.

The Google Earth Connections add-on package enables integration between ARCHICAD, Google Earth, SketchUp and Google 3D Warehouse through .kmz and .skp file formats. This capability moves users past the Building Information Model to the virtual world.

The Rhinoceros® – ARCHICAD connection enables ARCHICAD users on both the Mac and Windows platforms to export a model created in Rhino, and then import it into ARCHICAD. The Rhino-ARCHICAD link converts a Rhino model into ARCHICAD GDL objects.
