Ci Tools – Ci extensions for Archicad
Indispensable tools to unleash Archicad – Designed and built by architects, for architects.
The Ci Doors+Windows Tool gives you the freedom to explore a greater variety of door and window styles with a variety of panels, opening methods, trims and sills.
Add personality to your designs without restrictions on style, complexity or construction. What’s more, door and window objects made using this tool can be shared across projects, using the powerful Ci Presets system.View product
End the tedium and potential errors of annotating your Archicad drawings by using Ci Keynotes.
Keynotes allows you to annotate your drawings quickly and simply with greater accuracy by providing a framework to create a database of notes (or to transfer an existing database) so that notes automatically attach to elements based on their attributes.
You can place a full note without any reference directly on a drawing, or place a reference key on the drawing and then Keynotes compiles a schedule of these notes.View product
Use just one highly-configurable object to model all your cabinetry, instead of having to use separate objects for each different cabinet type and shape.View product
Using the new library you can easily model flat and curved cupboard doors and drawer fronts. Mix and match from a generous palette of editable panel styles and handle types to create that unique look.
Add realism to your Archicad model by applying 3D modelled skins to walls, slabs, columns and roofs in both 2D and 3D views.
This tool will add depth and detail to the surfaces of your Archicad projects. The surfaces are represented in your 2D, 3D, section and elevation views and they even retain their correct proportions when object sizes are changed.
The surfaces created maintain an automatic relationship to the primary elements, and whenever it is updated or changed, the attached 3D modelled objects update correspondingly.View product
Ci Objective has been designed to greatly increase your ability to model in 3D in Archicad, in a way which feels like a natural part of the environment.View product
The Objective tool now combines the functionality of the Ci Extrusions and Slab Edges tools. This makes it an incredibly powerful tool that gives you everything you need to bend, split, rotate, align and modify elements in your Archicad Model.
With the Ci Electrical tool, placing electrical symbols is not only simple, but smart too. Just set the elevation you want when you place them, and the symbols will automatically rotate and position themselves to your walls when you click to place them.
The Electrical tool comes with a library of Power Points, Switches, Jacks, and other Wall Plates, which can all be shown as either the Wall Plate itself, or the individual components that Wall Plate contains.View product
Design stairs with flexibility and freedom, straight onto your model.
With Ci Stairs, you have access to a range of individual components that allow for highly flexible stair configurations for both residential and commercial designs.
Railings can be associated with stairs, slabs or even stand-alone, so that stairs can easily wind at varied widths and heights and open on to landings. Stair assemblies can be edited, labelled and output as if they were a single object.View product
The Ci Metadata tool allows you to work with the Properties and Classifications of your model elements in a handy palette, instead of having to jump through dialog boxes to find what you need.
It also makes bulk changes of properties easier, and the filter and selection options will help you simply find the elements you’re looking for as you check your model.View product
The Ci Annotate tool lets you take control of your text case in Archicad – you can change all text, or just the selected text to all-caps, lowercase, sentence case, or heading case. This removes the need to retype everything.
You can also add exceptions to your text case rules, and even apply the changes to text inside of objects.View product
Ci Shortcut is a speed-boosting tool to help you find and zoom to the plan view representation of any model elements you select in 3D or Section/Elevation – in one click.
This is useful for when you are exploring your model in 3D and Sections/Elevations to check it . Once you find an element that needs further investigation, just select it and use the Shortcut to jump right to it in your Floorplan view.View product
The Ci Transformer tool is brand new in Archicad 24 and is a one-click solution for customers who need to Mirror an entire project. Currently, doing that is a time consuming and error-prone process due to the extra work required to mirror and check on all the 2D work and other attached elements when you rotate just the 3D model.
With Ci Transformer, simply select the Axis you want to mirror your project by, and our tool takes care of the rest . All your model elements, as well as markers, labels, and other 2D work get mirrored for you.View product
CI Quantities is a solution for improving the process of calculating, scheduling, and exporting a bill of quantities from a live Archicad project model.
You can assign costs and quantities to your Archicad Elements, or automatically assign them using smart Recipes, and then generate Bills of Quantity at any time as you go, choosing to view the Bill Schedule in Archicad or export it to use in third-party tools.View product
This tool is only available in New Zealand and Western Australia.

It includes area and zone stamps, survey boundary tool, and building envelopes.View product
Detail Elements Tool
This tool is only available in New Zealand, and in Australia for Select Annual customers and Premium Subscription members.
Detail Elements take the work out of detailing with a huge set of smart parametric 2D objects ready to be dragged and dropped. It saves hours from the documentation process by dynamically editing them, and remove the mundane and boring aspects of detailing.View product
The Ci Framewright tool is specifically designed to be used to help design Oak Frame houses, primarily in the UK. It is not a general purpose framing solution. Designing an oak frame construction in a CAD program can be particularly difficult given that many of the components will have irregular shapes that cannot be described parametrically. However, by adding FrameWright to Archicad you can convert any user-defined shape into a framing object.View product
This tool is only available in New Zealand. Specifically designed for our NZ Customers to calculate the required bracing units for the walls of your Timber-framed buildings based on NZS3604:2011.
The Tool also automatically adds the Bracing Lines, the physical braces based of your preferred Brace Set along these Brace Lines and creates a Bracing Table.View product
