How to Download and Install VisualARQ 1.6 Software for Rhino
VisualARQ is a plugin for Rhino that adds architectural features to the free-form modeling software. With VisualARQ, you can create and edit parametric objects such as walls, doors, windows, stairs, roofs, beams, columns, and more. You can also generate 2D documentation from 3D models, such as floor plans, sections, elevations, tables, and schedules.
If you want to try VisualARQ for free, you can download the evaluation version from the official website[^1^]. The evaluation version is fully functional for 90 days after the installation. After 90 days, some features are disabled.
If you already have a VisualARQ license, you can download the latest version from the same website[^1^]. The latest version is VisualARQ 1.6, which was released in July 2012. This version includes some new features and improvements, such as:
Real-time plan views in page layout details.
Customizable wall joints.
Wall components wrapping.
Hatched section views.
Tables with area, length, and volume of VisualARQ objects.

Congratulations! You have successfully downloaded and installed VisualARQ 1.6 software for Rhino. Now you can start creating and editing architectural models with ease and precision.
Once you have VisualARQ 1.6 software installed, you can start learning how to use it by following the video tutorial[^2^] that covers the full process of creating a project of architecture in 3D, from an empty document to the drawing production. The model selected for this tutorial is Le Corbusierâs masterpiece âThe Villa Savoyeâ. This tutorial is meant as a step-by-step guide to explain the architecture modeling workflow with VisualARQ and Rhino, but also to be taken randomly at any specific part and learn about the different VisualARQ commands and features.
The video tutorial is divided into five main sections: document setup, ground floor, first floor, terrace floor, and documentation. Each section includes several sub-sections that explain how to create and edit different VisualARQ objects such as slabs, walls, columns, doors, windows, curtain walls, stairs, railings, openings, sections, spaces, tags, tables, and more. You can also download the model[^2^] and follow along with the videos.
If you want to learn more about VisualARQ features and capabilities, you can also check out other learning resources[^3^] such as webinars, courses, custom training, and Grasshopper integration. You can also find answers to your questions in the forum, tips and tricks pages, or by contacting the support team. aa16f39245
