Command and Control ARCHICAD - The Box Set


Over the past four weeks we have been running a series of #justthetip articles showing how to Command and Control ARCHICAD.  These have shown four of the main keys that can be used to tame ARCHICAD and increase your productivity.  They include:

  • The Command (Mac OS) or Control key
  • The Shift key
  • The Alt key
  • The Spacebar

In the video below we have combined all the previous recordings to give you 'The Box Set' - now you can see them all in one place, at one time, in one video!

In the first video showing functions of the Command or Control key we missed one feature that was actually introduced a couple of versions ago - but slipped under the radar (thanks to James at GSHu for pointing it out).

When it comes to removing points from existing Dimension lines, you can actually hold Command or Control and click on them rather than the slower method of selecting and deleting the points.  Here is an example using only the Command or Control keys...

The usual rules apply - the Dimension line needs to be selected and the Dimension Tool active in the Toolbox

"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."

“My firm was an early adopter of the forward thinking design software, Archicad. We’ve been using Archicad for over twenty five years now and have found it to be the most comprehensive architectural design software on the market. It’s a complete package - suitable to use from early conceptual design through BIM oriented construction documents and into building construction. I don’t know of another software package that handles all of these various design tasks with such seamless and efficient continuity."
