Link VR January 01, 2018 Comments

Happy new year everyone! I thought I'd kick off the year with a blog post! Late last year I needed to update my laptop. Chris and I decided to make sure my new laptop was ‘VR Ready’ and thus began my first venture into Virtual Reality, or VR. Sure, I had previously used the old-style stereoscopic glasses and even Google Cardboard with BIMx. I’d even tried on a few VR helmets over the years, but it’s only now that I believe VR is really hitting a tipping point, especially with ARCHICAD.

...and lots of other things too!  

Rather than use the same old GRAPHISOFT images on some of the Objects - use your own personal photographs or graphics.  This applies to the following ranges of ARCHICAD 20 Library parts:

It has been some time since ARCHICAD 20 was released - and like previous versions, from time to time, GRAPHISOFT release updates.  These updates perform maintenance on your installation and apply fixes for issues. 

Updates are particuraly important right now as Apple has recently released their new Operating System macOS 10.12 Sierra

To Check for Updates - launch ARCHICAD and go to Help > Check for Updates...

When you are working between projects you often find the need to add additional Libraries.  It is prety frustrating having to navigate through the same repetitive folders trying to find that special Library… usually the one you keep meaning to move to a more sensible location ;-)

"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."
