If you would like a demo for ArchiCAD version 14 or 15, please vote in the poll above, so we can gauge the demand.

The demo is based on the 1.13b version of the plugin

OctaneRender for ArchiCAD 16 Demo (v1.13b)




This version requires video driver 301.42 or higher.

It is also highly recommended that you have your Windows display adapter set to a non-Octane rendering graphics card (ie. your on-board graphics card, or a second graphics card).


There is one installer for both 32 and 64 bit versions of ArchiCAD 16.

Once installed, run ArchiCAD and confirm the installation via Options->Add-On Manager, and check to ensure there are ticks beside "OctaneRender for ArchiCAD" and "OctaneRender Renderer". If there is a red "!" symbol, then the plugin did not load, and this is most likely because you do not have up to date Nvidia drivers loaded.

OctaneRender for ArchiCAD comes out of beta on the 22nd July, so if you would like to pick up the plugin at the current reduced "beta" pricing, purchase it prior to that date.
