“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."

"I attended a multi day training session with Chris and Link of BIM6x. Their knowledge of ARCHICAD, organization and accessibility during the course were exceptional. I left the class feeling more confident using ARCHICAD, with many useful techniques to save time and produce better drawings and models. It was extremely helpful to work with instructors that know the software inside and out and who were able to share their knowledge in a clear and enjoyable way."
