Don’t be controlled by the Wall Reference Line

Ken

When you use ARCHICAD to create building models, you learn pretty quickly that thinking about the direction of a Wall and it’s Reference Line is pretty important.   

Very often you spend a lot of time violently throwing the mouse from one side of the screen to the other just to change the Reference Line position of a Wall… without that, inside ends up out and vice versa!  

This can be pretty annoying - but can easily be solved with the help of a couple of shortcut keys!

“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.”

"We have been using ARCHICAD at BMA LLC for over 15 years and have been super satisfied with the software! The integration of Architecture and Engineering into a complete BIM model helps us from the creative prelims through the Construction Documents combining with all the disciplines. We seem to be modeling more and more and that has helped us with the overall design, details and documentation. The power of ARCHICAD is the seamless process of Design Development, Client Interaction, Documenting Working Drawings, and Construction Understanding and Visualization - the complete package!"
