...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...

This is the final article in a series of four #justthetip articles showing you how to master the primary keys you need to Command and Control ARCHICAD.  The key we will examine today is not one that is traditionally thought of as a shortcut key at all… the Spacebar.

"As the complexity of our designs have increased, ARCHICAD has proven to be the tool that allows us to work through our designs in 3D, then allows us to provide documents that demonstrate our design intent."

"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."
