ARCHICAD 23 enables architects to model faster and create accurate construction details and quantity estimations for reinforced concrete, complex steel, timber, and composite beams and columns. Complex columns, curved and haunched beams can now be modeled and documented to meet graphic and representation standards. Beams and columns can be displayed using various projected and symbolic views and cover fills.

What's New:

New Features in ARCHICAD 23:
Voids, Niches and Recesses
ARCHICAD 23 introduces a new Opening tool dedicated to model and coordinate project design voids, recesses and niches — as horizontal, vertical or slanted openings across elements, element groups or even across stories. Such openings are important for project coordination as they are equally relevant for architects, engineers and consultants and must be documented by architects and by engineers. Openings can be modeled, scheduled, and documented using intuitive tools, and shared using open IFC standards.

One-click photo-realistic renderings with Twinmotion
ARCHICAD 23 allows architects to experience real-time rendering and photo-realistic visualization with the seamless workflow of the Twinmotion live connection. Thanks to Twinmotion's state-of-the-art rendering solution, creating real-time photo-realistic renderings is now extremely fast and easy, while real-time synchronization enables architects to edit the model and make design decisions on the fly. All qualifying ARCHICAD 23 license holders are entitled to Epic Games’ upcoming enhanced version of Twinmotion, free of charge.

Renewed Solibri connection
ARCHICAD 23 enables seamless code- and constructability checking at any stage of the design. The updated add-on automatically detects and sends only those elements that are changed in the ARCHICAD model, resulting in faster round-trip collaboration.

Enhanced ARCHICAD 23 - dRofus 2.3 connection
ARCHICAD 23 allows architects to capture and organize client planning requirements and use these to validate and propose design alternatives. dRofus enables designers to collect and handle planning rules and design data with ease, even when working on large and complex projects, like hospitals, airports and universities. Thanks to the latest improvements, dRofus 2.3 fully supports ARCHICAD 23, and users can now import rooms from ARCHICAD into dRofus.

Rhino-Grasshopper-ARCHICAD live connection
The new Grasshopper Deconstruct Component can be used to extract ARCHICAD element surface data as a design reference. With the help of this function, changes to the core design scheme in BIM will automatically update all linked design details generated via design algorithms in Grasshopper.

Faster response times
ARCHICAD 23 puts a special emphasis on offering an uninterrupted flow starting from launching the software, accessing project data and navigating one’s way through the Building Information Model. This is achieved through a combination of raw performance optimization, streamlined workflows and reduced file sizes.

Right click, select Open.
Repeat again, the second time it should run.

Hi Prado, thanks for your help. I tried but with no luck.

Hi, I investigated it deeper. Found the problem: Lack of signature on the executable.

Here is a full, tested, step by step, to make it work.

1) Install it with default options. (considering you already installed, install again, it will ask if you want to "repair", proceed with the repair installation)

2) when it is almost finished you will be asked 3 checkbox, the 3rd on is to enable "automatic update", UNCHECK it. (see picture below):

3) Then it will ask if you want to restart, select NO (picture below)

4) Unzip the attached crack

5) Replace the first 2 files with their cracked versions.

copy cracked EnergyEvaluation to:

copy cracked MEP to:

6) replace the main executable ARCHICAD with the cracked version on

Now we need to CodeSign the application again, because Mojave/Catalina requires the application to be CodeSigned. Does not matter who codesign it. We will codesign it locally on your machine.

7) Open a terminal window, execute the command to install XcodeTools, it is very quick, on Terminal, execute this command:

xcode-select --install

Wait it finish the installation, it should take about 3 to 5 minutes

After it finish, we will CodeSign the application, use this command on terminal (this is ONE command line, the forum here breaks the line. but this is just a Single command line, copy and paste it on Terminal.. wait for it to codesign the application, it should take some minutes.. about 2 to 5 minutes..

codesign --force --deep --sign - /Applications/GRAPHISOFT/ARCHICAD\ 23/ARCHICAD\

If you have any question or doubt please ask.

Hi Prado, thank you a lot. Works now.

Hi, the former solution also worked for me, thx!
Now i have another issue. I cant open files from my external drive that i have connected to my mac. (Its a Cloud external drive from WD)
I have granted full disk access to the app, but i cant still open.
Someone has this issue too? Is it fixable?

Hi Prado,

Where did you get the crack from ?

prado 16 January 2020 11:51
Hi mgrroyall,
It is packed on a zip file, inside the downloaded .dmg file.
