Guessing by the fact that 2/3 US presenters are structural firms, I suspect GS is adding tools for structural engineering to be integrated with General Contractors needs.

My hope GS doesn't continue to bloat the software with tools not fully vetted, while showing a dog and pony show to impress Revit customers, in an effort to get them to join our "gang".

Hoping for real world modeling tool improvements and consistency tool to tool, along with improved efficiencies in 2d production tools.

A completely modernized library with objects that come from partnerships with real product manufacturers would be earth shaking, which are abundant, if you are a Revit or Sketchup user.

Hopefully Epic Games will be able to present a stable working version of TwinMotion, instead of the vaporware Ray Tracing solution they announced in Vegas which GS was so excited to highlight. Unfortunately, Epic didn't deliver on....no fault of GS.

As a Mac office, I hope GS can announce they are partnering with Apple to have their software ported for the new A12 powered Macs scheduled to start production this fall.

I hope so!

We won't have Archicad running natively on Apple silicon for 12 months or so I guess.
Apple have only just released the development kit widely.

Apple have demoed Microsoft and Adobe software running natively (i.e. not in Rosetta 2) already, but I doubt many other major companies will have had an advance look at this sufficient to start porting their software.

I would also bet my house that the Microsoft and Adobe software demoed won't be fully functional.

The benchmarks for Rosetta2 are looking impressive so far, but it's way too early to draw conclusions. It's not unreasonable to assume that AR will able to run under Rosetta 2 when the new hardware is released - as long as the hardware is up to it. No reason to assume it won't work - Apple demoed Maya running in Rosetta 2.

I would also put a ton of money on Archicad 24 being formally released at the July 8-9 event.

The UK support office is being closed for 'staff training' in a few days - not long to wait now!

I remember the video on Youtube showing how the updated Curtain wall tool could be used for Pompidou's structure, including the gerberettes. I tried to do a similar thing (much simplified) for spur shelving, and even the UK Graphisoft support guys could't get this to work without GDL coding.

This was a bit of a con.

What we desperately need is an updated mesh tool, for SEOs to work in plan, for railing components to display accurately in plan and improved morphs.

If morphs could work as easily as SketchUp geometry (still less flexible in lots of ways) that would be amazing!

More options for importing terrain models would be fantastic. The current 'Place mesh from surveyors data' function is just broken. It either uses Poisson or Delaunay triangulation which fails when there are things like roads, kerbs, steps and retaining walls.

That´s the rumour I´ve heard around here for the International version. And that localized ones may come as soon as a week later...
