ArchiSuite - The ArchiCAD Complete Plug-Ins Collection
The architectural design sector is so variegated that every designer would like to work with his or her own particular tools.
With ArchiSuite, Cigraph intends to give ArchiCAD users customised functions for made-to-measure solutions to facilitate all stages of their work.
The ArchiSuite project is based on the Cigraph Plug-Ins (you surely know that a plug-in (or an add-on) is a software component allowing you to add new functions to ArchiCAD) and our aim is to continue enhancing this ever-open container over time to reflect our users’s suggestions.
ArchiSuite 16 is available on our on-line store for 750 euro and as update from ArchiSuite 14 or 15 for 160,00 euro.

ArchiSuite 16: new features
A new Plug-in: ArchiTools
ArchiSuite was designed to be an open and evolutive collector of Plug-ins for ArchiCAD and this is the way Cigraph developed ArchiTools: it brings together different, useful tools belonging to some existing plug-in and still missing in ArchiCAD 16.
ArchiCAD is becoming more powerful version after version and functions which previously neglected certain fields of application are gradually being integrated, so, as the years go by, certain plug-ins become obsolete and we can't keep them “alive” for just two or three still useful features, but we can now collect these "remaining" commands into ArchiTools.
That' s why you won't find ArchiRuler 2, ArchiWall 2, ArchiTabula and ArchiRotate in ArchiSuite 16, but you'll find ArchiTools, a sort of multipurpose Swiss penknife.
