ArchiTools has been conceived as a sort of multipurpose Swiss penknife.
The palette is in fact designed to bring together a variety of different but valuable commands and functions.

ArchiTools is part of ArchiSuite 16 and following versions, it doesn't work on ArchiCAD 15, or any other previous version.
Our customers often ask us to develop single-command procedures to simplify their work and improve productivity, but often we are unable to meet these requests as developing an entire add-on to approach a problem resolved with a single command would have little sense.
At the same time, thanks to Graphisoft and luckily for all users, ArchiCAD is becoming ever more powerful version after version and functions which previously neglected certain fields of application are gradually being integrated.
This means that as the years go by, certain add-ons become ever more obsolete.
One emblematic example is ArchiRuler, in the past one of the most successful add-ons as it fulfilled all 2D drawing needs, at the time somewhat neglected in ArchiCAD.
Today ArchiCAD’s 2D functions are much more powerful and the majority of procedures provided by ArchiRuler are therefore obsolete (some such as Guide Lines are now actually provided by ArchiCAD as a native tool).
At the same time, some ArchiRuler procedures are still useful as they provide functions not yet fully covered by ArchiCAD.
Keeping an add-on “alive” for just two or three commands is obviously not worth the effort, so where can these “remaining” commands be inserted?
These problems are now a thing of the past as ArchiTools brings all these different commands together.

The ArchiTools tool palette provides access to all the commands provided by this add-on:
From left to right, the commands currently available are:
  • Delete marquee area
  • Distribute
  • Simplify polyline
  • 2D asymmetrical scaling
  • Text on polyline
  • Multiply (Section/Elevation)
  • Move a copy (Section/Elevation)
  • Mirror a copy (Section/Elevation)
  • Custom window
  • Rotate object
  • Save rotatable object
  • Tabbed text import (Table object) • Import list of points
  • List areas
  • Help

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


ArchiCAD Version
ArchiSuite is compatible with ArchiCAD 17 and subsequent versions and it does not work with previous versions of ArchiCAD.
Installing the package
Installing ArchiSuitePlus has to happen in 2 steps:
  1. After downloading, click on the file and an Installer will put the Add-Ons in the correct folder of ArchiCAD
  2. After the Installer finished, it is necessary to prepare the Cigraph-Dongle. Put it into the computer and lunch ArchiCAD. From the menu: Design- Extradesign select “Cigraph Liccenze Activation” and follow the instructions.
Custom Work Environment
If you use personalized ArchiCAD 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.

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

To ease your life we developed a dedicated "Installer", which starts after downloading ArchiSuitePlus.
