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?

“The bulk of my career in architecture has been firmly and happily spent in the Fine Art world of the commonly known 2D hand rendering style and the skillful play between pen weights and poche, or shadows. However, there is an incredible shift in this profession today that is even more beautiful – 3D modeling and BIM production in ARCHICAD.

No matter the style or size of architecture, the production end of ARCHICAD and BIM makes this architect and business owner excited!”
