Not all ARCHICAD projects are created equal. From Library Management, to Project Management, to Attribute Management, to Project Settings, to Project Preferences, to Project Structure to managing External Content, there are numerous ways to slow your files down, blow out the file sizes, and generally disorganize your projects.

"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."

"We have been using ARCHICAD at BMA LLC for over 15 years and have been super satisfied with the software! The integration of Architecture and Engineering into a complete BIM model helps us from the creative prelims through the Construction Documents combining with all the disciplines. We seem to be modeling more and more and that has helped us with the overall design, details and documentation. The power of ARCHICAD is the seamless process of Design Development, Client Interaction, Documenting Working Drawings, and Construction Understanding and Visualization - the complete package!"
