Graphisoft has shipped its new ArchiCAD 8 Student Version. ArchiCAD is a drafting and 3D modeling application. The new Student Version, targeted toward both students and instructors, is available now for Macintosh and Windows.

According to Graphisoft, ArchiCAD 8 Student Version offers "enhanced capabilities for detailing and documentation creation and management, as well as faster navigation speed, flexible modeling and rendering and a streamlined interface for increased ease of use and efficiency." New design features include new detailing functionality, Boolean geometry for flexible sculpting of building elements and new sketch rendering and photo rendering options.
