You may, or may not, have noticed the new Quick Options Bar in ARCHICAD 20:

"BIM6x has afforded our firm the ability to transition from a traditional CAD program to Archicad. Their expertise, availability and desire for us to succeed has made the transition smooth. The tools they provided allowed us to change our internal process to maximize the use of Archicad."

“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. Graphisoft has built for my firm such a powerful platform for rendering that today’s most savvy clients get excited. No matter the style or size of architecture, the production end of Archicad and BIM makes this architect and business owner excited!”
