Free student version of Virtual Construction software (soon?)

Vico Software creates a suite of applications for Virtual Construction, which are based on Graphisoft ArchiCAD, combined with Estimator and Constructor software. Instead of describing a virtual building, they present this approach as virtual construction. Each element contains information about all required materials and manipulations, a recipe to construct the element, rather than visualize it. This is augmented with time planning facilities.

They are planning to provide students with a free version of their software "soon". More information on http://www.vicosoftware.com/0/0/Downloads/tabid/54148/Default.aspx.

The software suite is only available on Windows and includes ArchiCAD.
