“Chris and Link from BIM6x have been an incredible assistance and resource for our firm as we have implemented ARCHICAD into our office workflow. Not only are they experts in the use and implementation of the software, they are also very enjoyable to work with. They are always quick to respond to any questions or issues that we may have ... and if they don’t have the answers (which is rare) they know where to send us to find them. Their technical support is by far the best that we have ever had in our industry and their development of the BIM6x ARCHICAD Template Kits is a testament of their desire to see their clients succeed.”
