'ArtiCAD Pro' design software is one of the leading packages available in its industry. Thousands of businesses and individual designers currently utilise it in the UK and around the world. Not only that, they keep renewing their licenses & versions to access the constantly improving service it offers. What keeps so many customers coming back?

Here we're going to look at the kitchen, bedroom and bathroom design software that ArtiCAD offers, and find out what all the fuss is about. Weâre going to assess the program in 4 main areas to give you an in-depth review and see if it really lives up to its reputation!

Tools & Interface

Perhaps one of the strongest selling points of the ArtiCAD Pro package is its accessibility. It's fair to say that both the tools and interface of the software are well crafted, easily understood and quick to pick up. Since learning how to use a new program is difficult, and the home design and architecture industry is becoming more competitive, it's important that programs are able to keep up with the pace.

First of all, ArtiCAD Pro looks simple. The icon layouts, ribbons and functions are easily accessible and understandable whilst good iconography, and customisation of the interface is a particular strength. No two designers are the same, and ArtiCAD lends itself to flexibility and versatility with its interface.

The tools are another great strength; they are powerful, but simple to access and execute. The design mechanics give you so much freedom to experiment. Designers can quickly switch between 2D and 3D versions, with a library of objects to use, and keyboard shortcuts and onscreen buttons mean you can design a great kitchen in a matter of minutes. This balance between power and simplicity is difficult to achieve, but the software has been improved and refined over the years through feedback and advancement; it walks the line in style.

The Finished Product

We've assessed the design stage, the tools and mechanics, but now it's time to look at the looks. While it's vital that the package comes up trumps in the technical department, it's the aesthetics that sell it to the boss or the buyer.

The good news is that ArtiCAD Pro doesn't leave you wanting in the visual department either.

You can quickly render your 2D designs into beautiful 3D presentations. The quality of texturing, materials, reflection and lighting means that you can create stunning designs in photographic quality. The industry today expects nothing less. The software even has its own presentation mechanics for you to take high quality renders of your work, but drag and drop alternative options into your live design. This means you can show the viewer different options for the same space in a matter of seconds, and have the freedom and versatility that appeals to both you as a designer, and them as a buyer.

Experience & Improvement

This section reviews ArtiCAD's improvements, and how their experience has reflected in the finished product. It's vital when you're considering an investment in a new program, or updating your version and license, that you know youâre getting the most for your money.

If there's one thing that the software has, it's a history. Many programs will have shiny results and impressive toolkits, but there's one thing that money can't buy: experience. The software was first released in 1992, and so has an amazing history of development along with the changing needs and capabilities of technology and design. It has transformed since its conception, and more importantly, for the better. The software developers and designers are constantly improving the bespoke package to satisfy the needs of retailers, plumbers, builders, individuals and home centres. Whatever area of the diverse industry you're in, ArtiCAD has over two decades of experience to offer.

Help & Support

As we already assessed, the accessibility of the product is one of its greatest strengths. Not everyone has the natural ability, though, or indeed the patience, to simply pick up a new piece of software and master it quickly. Whether you're a slow learner trying to get to grips with the basics, or you want to advance to more complex and powerful capabilities, you need help and support. One of the most important aspects of any software that is usually missed off a review is how you get assistance when you need it most.

Whether you're an experienced designer, or starting afresh, ArtiCAD doesn't neglect you. There are lots of training programs and courses that you can access, as well as extensive in-program help and tutorial facilities. Not only can you get the industry standard training and basic support, you can also become part of an annual support plan that gives you access to exclusive client care teams. You can get technical support and advice in a number of different mediums best suited to your needs.

Conclusion

While there are ever more improvements, tweaks and advancements that will be implemented during the transformation of ArtiCAD Pro, the package we have today is the best it has ever been. Offering an easy and accessible interface, powerful tools and rendering capabilities, constant improvements and the support you deserve, ArtiCAD Pro truly is the complete package. Whether you're creating a kitchen, or beginning a bedroom or bathroom, this isn't just the right software for the job, it's the only software for the job.
