Is Anything Not Covered?
*The purpose of an ArchiBOOST is to boost your knowledge and productivity in ARCHICAD. The focus is on improving your efficiency, so yes, certain topics are not covered. These include:

For those issues, we can put you in touch with them! ArchiBOOST is guaranteed for the latest version of ARCHICAD. Previous versions of ARCHICAD will certainly be addressed but are not guaranteed to be resolved. ArchiBOOST is available in English only, although we do offer a variety of accents!
What do I Need?
Apart from an eagerness to learn, you'll need an adequate internet speed, to have an enjoyabe experience. A reliable internet connection will prevent lag during video and audio exchange, and prevent any possible drop-outs. We recommend at least a 1.5Mbps upload speed. If you can meet this upload speed you should have more than adequate download speed. We recommend using speedof.me to determine your internet connection. Be sure to stop all internet activities before starting the process. This includes email and web browsing applications, especially any streaming service currently active in your home or office!
If your internet speed doesn't reach 1.5Mbps for upload and you're on wifi, try connecting a CAT5 or CAT6 cable to your modem. Or try another wifi. Otherwise you may need to contact your IT manager or internet provider to increase your service. Truth is you would want a faster connection anyway if you are going to use ARCHICAD's Teamwork remotely!
How Do I Connect?
Once it's time to get started you will need to follow the simple steps putlined in the video below (no sound). You will be sent a reminder with a link to this video one hour prior to your session:
