Nemetschek Group Drives Innovation through the Use of Artificial Intelligence
Munich, November 21, 2023 – The Nemetschek Group, one of the leading software providers for the AEC/O and media industries, is announcing product enhancements and strategic partnerships leveraging Artificial Intelligence (AI) technologies to further accelerate the design process, increase productivity and unleash creativity.
“We aim to provide trustworthy and ethic-based Artificial Intelligence to our customers in the AEC/O and 3D animation industries”, says Marc Nezet, Chief Strategy Officer and Chief Division Officer Operate & Manage at the Nemetschek Group. “The technologies have an unprecedented potential to drive efficiency and sustainability at a time, where particularly the construction industry is facing numerous challenges.”
AI Visualizer for Archicad
The Nemetschek brand Graphisoft today unveiled an AI-powered visualizer for its BIM software solution Archicad. With a powerful AI engine, that generates high-quality images, Archicad users can accelerate the early design process generating multiple design visualizations without modeling them in 3D. Powered by Stable Diffusion, a world-class AI-driven image generation tool, Archicad AI Visualizer creates detailed 3D visualizations during the early design stages. It is available for all architects and interior designers interested in exploring the future of AI-powered architectural visualization. The AI Visualizer will be made available for the Nemetschek brands Allplan and Vectorworks in the coming months.
“We are embracing AI technologies for the benefit of our customers”, says César Flores Rodríguez, Chief Division Officer Planning & Design and Digital Twin at the Nemetschek Group. “The Archicad AI Visualizer enables users to apply the latest AI-based technology where they need it most - early in the design process when exploring designs and communicating with clients”.
Technology Partnership with AI-Startup
Across the construction lifecycle, massive amounts of data are being produced. 80 percent of this data is so-called dark data, which is not being used to add value to the business but causing costs. The Nemetschek brand Allplan last week announced a technology partnership with elevait, provider of enterprise software based on artificial intelligence (AI), to make it easier for the construction and real estate industry to access its full project data. The start-up elevait offers an intelligent search engine for proprietary documents such as plans, contracts, invoices, quotations, and delivery notes.
“With the partnership between Allplan and elevait construction and real estate companies can significantly increase their efficiency and productivity and gain a clear competitive advantage”, explains César Flores Rodríguez.
