A Definitive Guide to Tabs in ARCHICAD 19

Link

ARCHICAD 19 brings us Tabs, but what are they, why were they introduced and what's the most efficient way to use them? We'll answer all these questions as we take an in-depth look at what tabs can and can’t do, then armed with that knowledge introduce best practices to use them efficiently. And who better to collaborate with than the GRAPHISOFT Product Designer tasked with implementing Tabs into ARCHICAD: James Badcock?

 

BIM: One of the Three Things you need includes a Template

To start being successful at BIM you need just three tools: a BIM application, a computer, and a powerful template.

"As the complexity of our designs have increased, ARCHICAD has proven to be the tool that allows us to work through our designs in 3D, then allows us to provide documents that demonstrate our design intent."

“Chris and Link from BIM6x have been an incredible assistance and resource for our firm as we have implemented ARCHICAD into our office workflow. Not only are they experts in the use and implementation of the software, they are also very enjoyable to work with. They are always quick to respond to any questions or issues that we may have ... and if they don’t have the answers (which is rare) they know where to send us to find them. Their technical support is by far the best that we have ever had in our industry and their development of the BIM6x ARCHICAD Template Kits is a testament of their desire to see their clients succeed.”
