With less complication and less learning, ARCHLine.XP enables more modelling in less time. It achieves this increased productivity by ensuring your designs can be created and altered with the least amount of user intervention at every stage of the projects life.
Changes to individual elements, such as when editing a single wall, or changes on a global scale, such as altering the floor heights of the entire building, are handled in just a few clicks – the model and all its connections, along with the complete set of 2D documents and 3D presentations, automatically update as desired.
A single cohesive project file handles the entire project so nothing gets lost and everything that needs to update as changes happen does update.
Because ARCHLine.XP is more efficient, every moment you spend using it in your business saves you time and money – equating to greater profits.
When you invest in ARCHLine.XP you own a ‘life-time’ license of the software with no annual license fees, so the software keeps giving more and more value to you the longer you use it.
All in One – One for All
Built for everyone from a single designer to a multi-discipline design team, enjoy ARCHLine.XP’s complete coverage of everything you need from concept to construction.
ARCHLine.XP’s rich tool-set is beyond that of other CAD software and caters to Architects, Building Designers, Interior Designers, Kitchen and Bathroom Designers, Stage and Set Designers, Floor Planners, Developers, Town Planners, Tilers, Cabinet Makers, Furniture Designers, Builders and more.

Take a project from site visit to survey, from concept to client presentation, from compliance to construction, then all the way to completion and certification. This is a huge advantage over traditional CAD as you only have to learn one software to streamline your entire business.
ARCHLine.XP’s tools include survey data manipulation, DTM (Digital Terrain Modeling), excavation modelling and calculation, building envelope creation, building design and modeling, framing design, drawing documentation, shadow analysis, point cloud conversion, remodeling from photos, interior design, kitchen, bathroom and cabinet design, photoreal rendering, animation and presentation, quantity take-off and ‘as-built’ drawing creation. If it can be built in the real world, it can be designed in ARCHLine.XP
Confidently choose ARCHLine.XP to be your complete software solution whether you’re new to CAD or have been using another program for years.
Compatibility and Collaboration
ARCHLine.XP embraces Revit® and IFC® file exchange to allow a seamless workflow when importing models or leveraging the extensive BIM model libraries found online. It works too with SketchUp® files for direct use in and out of your project.
ARCHLine.XP is buildingSMART® certified to provide unrivaled collaboration and mark the end of project misinterpretation and data loss.
Even if you’re still using traditional CAD software like AutoCAD® or Vectorworks® you’ll remain compatible with DWG file support too. ARCHLine.XP can even assist you to convert 2D DWG files into smart 3D models.

Being better is important but being compatible is paramount – ARCHLine.XP’s dedication to exchanging files between common CAD, BIM Rendering and Presentation platforms makes ARCHLine.XP the most flexible tool in the BIM space. Direct import and use of Revit RVT & RFA files, SketchUp files and many others means you get to leverage all the online library content as well as receive complete CAD models to import and edit as desired. When collaborating as part of team using different BIM software you can also use the Industry Foundation Class (IFC) standard built-in to ARCHLine.XP’s impressive file format lineup.
Passing a model out to external renderers isn’t essential as rendering is built-in to ARCHLine.XP Pro, but if you prefer to use tools like Lumion, V-Ray, Piranesi or others you can do this too.
Within an organisation, larger projects may have multiple members working live on different parts of the same model, all managed with simple permissions and access control.
To BIM or not to BIM?
If you don’t need the added complexity of BIM data in your CAD models then ARCHLine.XP allows you to simply work with a unified 3D CAD model. You can ‘BIMify’ your model later if required. And for those that do require full BIM ARCHLine.XP is fully BIM compliant.

Is it suitable for Aussie and NZ users?
Not only does ARCHLine.XP come with pre-defined local elements such as the wall types we use but it also allows for specific Aussie/NZ brand products and even the way we do our text, labels and dimensions.
Australia and New Zealand are very similar to Europe where the software is developed, so adjusting settings to suit our part of the world is easy – ARCHLine.XP is a perfect fit.
Who supports the product?
Users get direct access to local support via Sydney from 8:30am – 5:30pm as well as support from our Japan office in Tokyo and from the developers themselves in Budapest.

Autodesk’s best price Revit is Revit LT. This is still a BIM software but with a less expansive tool-set. BIM software files are designed to be shared between those involved in a building project but not all building design software is for building information modelling (BIM), some simple house design software will only let you draw in 2D whilst others will do 3D but not let you attach information about the materials or purpose of the elements in the model.
If you are looking to learn Revit then you should look at Revit alternatives first. ARCHLineXP is the ideal alternative to Revit or Revit LT as it does the same faster. If you’re in Australia in particular then Revit Australia or Revit New Zealand will help you join a Revit course in person or online. Some people refer to Revit as Revit CAD when looking to purchase Revit. Revit cost is based on an annually renewable fee. You will need to compare the Revit price with the price of other more capable BIM software to make a most informed choice. You’ll find Revit tutorials online. Be careful not to spell Revit incorrectly as Rivet because Rivet software is completely different.
Everything above also pertains to ArchiCAD. ARCHLineXP is one of the ArchiCAD alternatives. ARCHLineXP will outperform ArchiCAD, Revit and Vectorworks Architect in almost every aspect of the design process. ArchiCAD Australia and ArchiCAD NZ will be able to help you with your decision not to buy ArchiCAD, especially after you try ARCHLineXP. What is the cost of ArchiCAD software? You will need to go to the ArchiCAD software web site to find out, but it’s about twice as much as ARCHLineXP . If you’re looking for an ArchiCAD course then look to do an ARCHLineXP course first. In this way you’ll be able to see why ARCHLIneXP is so good by comparison. ArchiCAD for Mac will run directly on the Mac whilst Revit and ARCHLineXP require Windows to be installed under Bootcamp., Learn ArchiCAD online or in person but before you do be sure to check out ARCHLineXP . Like Revit and ARCHLineXP, ArchiCAD is BIM software. Compare ArchiCAD vs Revit in our report, ‘ArchiCAD vs others’. Some people incorrectly refer to ArchiCAD as AutoCAD ArchiCAD but they are not related. Autodesk ArchiCAD is also wrong.
Finally we look at Vectorworks which is generally regarded (by our team) as the poor cousin or BIM CAD software. Vectorworks Architect is the combination of foundation version of Vectorworks CAD software with a comprehensive architectural tool-set add-on called Architect.., [vectorworks], “best price vectorworks”, “vectorworks bim”, “learn vectorworks architect”, “vectorworks architect alternatives”, “vectorworks vs”, “vectorworks australia”, “vectorworks cad”, “vectorworks cost”, “vectorworks course”, “vectorworks for mac”, “vectorworks new , ealand”, “vectorworks nz”, “vectorworks price”, “vectorworks program”, “vectorworks software”, “vectorworks subs”, “vectorworks subscription”, “vectorworks tutorials”, “vectorworks vs archicad”, “vectorworks vs revit”
