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?

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?

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.

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.

"Chris and Link have been an invaluable asset for my company. While ARCHICAD itself is an amazing tool, it's the support I get from BIM6x that brings it to life. I've managed a competitive edge over other firms because the guys have helped me automate a great deal of my production work and utilize the power of the software to all but eliminate errors and omissions. They're very accessible and their knowledge of the industry and software makes them indispensable to any firm that wants to utilize ARCHICAD to produce high quality projects with efficiency and accuracy. I absolutely recommend them; it's not a choice, they're essential."
