"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."
