ArchiCAd 10 Plug-in to convert ArchiCAD 6.5, 7.0, 8.0 files to version 10

ArchiConverter is an ArchiCAD 10 plug-in enabling batches of ArchiCAD 6.5, 7.0 and 8.0 Project and Archive files to be converted to version 10 with one simple command.

The latest version issued by Graphisoft, opens saved files from version 8.1. 
To convert files prior to 8.1 without ArchiConverter, they must be opened in intermediate versions, then saved again for use in ArchiCAD 11 and later versions. 
ArchiConverter simplifies and speeds up conversion of the old files.
All you need do is place the 6.5, 7.0 and 8.0 files to be converted in a single folder
When this folder is selected, ArchiConverter performs an automatic conversion cycle, opening the old files one by one and saving them in a destination folder in ArchiCAD 10 format.
In order to convert files, ArchiCAD 10 installation is required: ArchiConverter only works with ArchiCAD 10.
Configuring the conversion process is very simple: 
choose the Source folder containing the files to be converted and the Destination folder where all the converted files will be saved. 
The converted files will be saved in their original type (.PLN or .PLA) in ArchiCAD 10 format, perfectly compatible with ArchiCAD 11 and later versions.
In ArchiConverter there are two options available in order to manage libraries in the case of Solo Project (.pln) files:
  • use the libraries currently loaded in ArchiCAD 10 and configured as active;
  • try to load the libraries linked to the project from the position (path) stored in the project file or from the same position as the loaded project file.


ArchiSuite System Requirements
The add-ons require the same configuration as your version of ArchiCAD.


ArchiCAD Version
ArchiSuite is compatible with ArchiCAD 13 and subsequent versions and it does not work with previous versions of ArchiCAD.
A special version of ArchiSuite is available for ArchiCAD Start Edition 2010 and subsequent versions (ArchiSuite for ArchiCAD Start Edition is NOT compatible with the full ArchiCAD version).
Installing the package
Select the ArchiSuite folder and after extracting it, copy it to the add-ons folder in the ArchiCAD folder on your computer. If installed correctly, when you next launch ArchiCAD, the Design menu will include a submenu providing access to ArchiSuite.
Custom Work Environment
If you use custom work environments, the add-on menu might not appear automatically in the ArchiCAD Design menu.
To show the Work Environment Manager dialog, click on Options/Work Environment.
Use this dialog to configure your custom work environments to include the menu for the new add-on.
Managing the object library
We recommend not moving the libraries used by the add-on from their original location (in the same folder as the add-on).
Here they will be managed automatically by the add-on and you will not experience any difficulty loading them.

ArchiSuite is provided with an hardware protection, the Cigraph Dongle, available on our on-line store together with ArchiSuite, with no additional shipping cost.

ArchiSuite download must be related to the ArchiCAD version and Operative System in use.

DEMO versions are available for test purposes.
DEMO versions are not provided with any protection system, but only with a few limitations on their tools capabilities.
