Not all ARCHICAD projects are created equal. From Library Management, to Project Management, to Attribute Management, to Project Settings, to Project Preferences, to Project Structure to managing External Content, there are numerous ways to slow your files down, blow out the file sizes, and generally disorganize your projects. Quite often we're not even aware of what is causing these issues! And if we don't know what's causing them how can we learn how to fix them?

Sometimes we work on projects that are sloppy. And sometimes those projects were started by us. And sometimes that happens.


Link Tabs September 21, 2015 Comments

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?

At BIM6x, we're always trying to educate users (existing and potential) about the powers of ArchiCAD. And I've personally always had a passion for building ArchiCAD Templates. So we decided to write a series of guest blog posts for AECbytes. My take on blog posts is that they should be highly informative and entertaining. Hopefully I've pulled that off!

To start being successful at BIM you need just three tools: a BIM application, a computer, and a powerful template. These three things provide the foundations necessary to efficiently create Building Information Models and deliver the Information and documentation in your BIM process. Three things. Not many compared to say, a builder, who needs a whole range of tools, but each as equally important as the next.


Link Work Environment July 31, 2015 Comments

As I was creating the new Work Environment Profiles for the BIM6x Template Kits, I was pouring through the new commands in ARCHICAD 19. You know, the ones you can access via the dropdown list in the Keyboard Shortcuts, Toolbars and Menus panels of the Work Environment dialog:

“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.”

“Having used Revit and ARCHICAD extensively, I can without hesitation say that ARCHICAD is BIM for architects. The ease of workflow from pre-design to schematic design to construction documents makes it ideal. There are so many time saving features. The fact that I can collaborate globally with minimal setup and that I can create anything my imagination comes up with is a great benefit to my architectural practice.”
