ARCHLine.XP, a fundamentally better way to design.

 

Faster to use and easier to learn

You can learn ARCHLine.XP in days or weeks not months or years – and when you’re up and running you’ll also be more productive than with any other BIM/CAD software.

ARCHLine.XP’s unique methodology provides the industry’s most rapid modelling and documentation tools that let you go from concept to construction without missing a beat. 

Training online is free and easy to follow. Choose from video lessons, webinars and step-by-step instructions – And unlike other major software, real live human support is always at hand.

Seamless

Work as easily in 3D as you do in 2D, or operate both at the same time. Plans, elevations, sections, perspectives and details all work together. Change your design in any view and all your drawings can update to reflect the changes. There is nothing left to chance, even when working with teams on larger projects, or multiple buildings on one site, ARCHLine.XP manages the model, the drawings, the files and even the backups.

You can even work with others using AutoCAD, Revit or other ordinary BIM/CAD software.

Quite literally, ARCHLine.XP is a fundamentally better way to design.

A fundamentally better way to design.

Bring your models to life

Engage your clients in your design, show off multiple design & material options and do it effortlessly. Use the built-in rendering engine or link to ARCHLine’s very own ‘LIVE’ rendering add-on that leverages gaming technology to render and animate in real-time.

Insert lights from the library and see how that illuminates your space at night, or watch as the sun casts its rays across your room or your site. Explore how subtle changes in materials and colour make all the difference to your design. Make changes and witness the update before your eyes.

Prefer to work with Lumion?.. you can do that too, ARCHLine.XP is compatible with every popular rendering tool as well as its own.

Some unique features users love

Stair Master

Click, click and your entire set of stairs is modelled and styled in seconds. Add handrails in a flash. ARCHLine-XP’s stairs even cut a stairwell in the floor and ceiling for you!

Be the master every step of the way.

Roof Wizardry

Enjoy the industry’s best-in-class roof design tools to automatically generate roofing in just a couple of clicks…. Then take full control over every roof panel.

The intelligence to finish fast, the finesse to stay in control.

Point Cloud Magic

Capture existing structures with laser or lidar generated point cloud data and work directly inside the point cloud to generate rooms or buildings in a real-world context.

Teamwork

ARCHLine.XP collaboration tools allow multiple team members to work on the same project at the same time. Great for the large office or remote office environment. Projects can be managed and protected from accidental editing too.

Terrain Modelling

Model accurate terrain of any site with any set of height data. Automatically create a terrain from the address you enter in Google Maps. The Digital Terrain Modelling (DTM) is simply outstanding and incredibly easy to use.

Parametric Walls

Walls accurately adjust to meet the structural and non structural levels you define. Brickwork will meet footings for example, whilst rendering or cladding can travel past the slab and cover the joint where the wall and slab meet.

ARCHLine.XP Live Logo

File formats

Import and export just about any regular file format to and from just about anyone. Working with the widest array of associates using other CAD software couldn’t be easier or more flexible. 

Window to the future

Embellish your openings with curtains, blinds, shutters, awnings and more. ARCHLine.XP is Europe’s leading software for interior designers and is fast becoming ‘on-trend’ for Architects too. 

Furniture & Cabinet Modules

From soft furnishings to complete kitchen cabinets, ARCHLine.XP can’t be compared. Kitchen, bathroom, wardrobe and interior fit-out professionals buy ARCHLine.XP for these features alone.

FAQ’s

ARCHLine-XP Minimum System Requirements

Windows
Windows 11, 10, 8 or 7 (64bit)
Intel i7 or higher, 64bit machine
16GB or greater
5GB Hard Drive (SSD preferred)
Mouse with scroll wheel
NVIDIA graphics card with 2GB (4GB or more recommended) supporting OpenGL
1920 x 1080 screen resolution or higher recommended
4k screens are supported

Mac
Mac is not officially supported by the makers of ARCHLine.XP so if something doesn’t work as expected you are ‘on your own’ in terms of support.

Unofficially: If you have an Intel based mac machine (Prior to the newer M1 chips from Apple) you can use Apple’s Bootcamp to boot-up into MS Windows OS (operating system) rather than Mac OS. You would then install ARCHLine.XP on your Windows OS.

If you have a more recent M1 based Mac machine you must use ‘Parallels’ to install Windows. You would then install ARCHLine.XP on Windows.

You will need to purchase a license of Parallels and Windows and you will need more RAM as Windows will also be using your resources. We suggest 32GB as a bare minimum.

You will also need a regular mouse with a scroll wheel to run almost all CAD software. Apple’s Magic Mouse does not allow you to operate CAD efficiently making the work very tedious. You can run both a Magic Mouse and regular mouse at the same time.

What license options are available?

ARCHLine-XP is available as a perpetual, lifetime license that is yours to keep forever or as an annually renewable rental license. You can purchase upgrades with either license type as desired. There is no compulsory upgrade subscription. 

Can I use ARCHLine-XP on a Mac?

Yes, but only when running Microsoft Windows on your Mac. Mac is not officially supported by the makers of ARCHLine.XP so if something doesn’t work as expected you are ‘on your own’ in terms of support.

What do I get with Support?

You get our expert local assistance with both technical and user issues. We provide screen to screen help as well as videos that show you how to resolve your problem or complete a task. It’s a bit like having a guru at your fingertips.

Can I work with Revit files and libraries?

Yes, ARCHLine-XP Pro supports the import and use of Revit® .RVT and .RFA (Revit Family) files.
.RFA objects carry BIM parameters for the object, so you’ll be working with intelligent building components, not just simple CAD blocks. Most manufacturers provide downloadable ‘BIM’ models in Revit® format which you will use in ARCHLine-XP.

Connect to libraries such as Cadenas® and BIMobject® – import actual objects with their BIM parameters directly into your ARCHLine-XP model.

How do updates work?

When you purchase your license you will be given the latest version. You can choose to upgrade to newer versions as they are released (approximately once per year). If you’re on Premium Support then your upgrades are included free.

ARCHLine.XP Pro vs. ARCHLine.XP LT... What's the difference?

What others are saying

As an architect, I started working with ArchiCAD 6.0, and later the office switched to Revit. I came across ARCHLine.XP in 2015, and I was quickly convinced that it is an easy to learn, full-fledged CAD-BIM program. I love it.”
Jakob Judis Architect, Norway

“I’m loving this program… I’ve been plugging away with AutoCAD and then Revit for years…’feels like I’ve finally found wheels for my bike!”

Peter Park B.Arch.,  Australia

“Having just one comprehensive program for everything we do makes life so much easier to manage”.
G. Watts Design Selection, Australia

We were facing a lot of wasted time, a complex project took 4 to 5 days with SketchUp and our objective was to reduce that time to 2 days maximum – ARCHLine.XP is completely answering our particular needs and requirements.”
Mattheiu Pello Project Manager, Kosmo, France

“We replaced our old CAD software with Archline and simply get more done in less time, period.”
Gabrielle Schultz (Interior designer)

“I thought our greatest challenge would be time lost learning new software. We switched to Archline.XP  quite quickly, I think because the designers loved it.”
Bruce McKay (Building designer)

We worked with AutoCAD so the transition to ARCHLine.XP was pretty easy because both are similar in the basic understanding. ARCHLine.XP offers you a much easier and customer friendly environment.”
Antonis Kiritsis Architect, Archilab Studio, Greece

“I’m learning Revit at TAFE. I wish they taught this, it’s sooo much easier and faster, I’m definitely getting Archline when I finish my course and start my own business”
R. McKinley Varley (Design Student) Ultimo, Australia

“Our first job with the program went super well. It definitely contributed to winning the project. Thanks for all your help!”
Rob & Ryan (Commercial kitchen design), Sydney, Australia
