Free ArchiCAD 11 Educational Version

With the new release of ArchiCAD 11, the student version is still freely available. Register at for a temporary serial number. After about a month, you should be contacted by the local reseller for a final serial number for the rest of the year.

The software is available for Windows and Mac (Intel and PPC) and is fully compatible with the commercial release (libraries, updates, add-ons). It displays a watermark on the viewport, plotted files and exported PDFs, but is fully functional.

Commercial users might want to look at the BIM Experience Kit, which contains a 30-day fully functional trial version and tutorials and examples.
