About GraphiSoft ArchiCAD 21. The star upgrade in the ARCHICAD 21 release is undoubtedly the package's new stair and railing tools. As any drafter or architect knows, designing stairs is fraught with challenges. Not only do strict building standards complicate stair design, but iterations of a building's structure mean there's a tremendous amount of tedious reworking of the stair design each time a project is modified. In ARCHICAD 21, this has all changed. According to GRAPHISOFT, drafters will now have access to automated stair design tools that work in the background to create an optimal stair configuration that's building specific. All users need to do now is create a polyline to guide the direction of the stairs and wait for the ARCHICAD stair algorithm to offer up stair design options. Once a stair design has been chosen, an associated railing can be added with a simple single-click operation that completes the climbing feature.

Beyond the time-saving stair tool, ARCHICAD 21 also features an upgraded CineRender engine, which can be used to create photorealistic images of building interiors and exteriors.
