At BIM6x, we're always trying to educate users (existing and potential) about the powers of ArchiCAD. And I've personally always had a passion for building ArchiCAD Templates. So we decided to write a series of guest blog posts for AECbytes. My take on blog posts is that they should be highly informative and entertaining. Hopefully I've pulled that off!

To start being successful at BIM you need just three tools: a BIM application, a computer, and a powerful template. These three things provide the foundations necessary to efficiently create Building Information Models and deliver the Information and documentation in your BIM process. Three things. Not many compared to say, a builder, who needs a whole range of tools, but each as equally important as the next.

As I was creating the new Work Environment Profiles for the BIM6x Template Kits, I was pouring through the new commands in ARCHICAD 19. You know, the ones you can access via the dropdown list in the Keyboard Shortcuts, Toolbars and Menus panels of the Work Environment dialog:

ARCHICAD has been the primary software in my architectural practice for over a decade. I am continuously impressed by the powerful solution ARCHICAD offers for the design process from early design through construction. I love that I never need to “dumb-down” my virtual designs at any point along the way! The power of the virtual model is incredible through every stage of the project and it is especially helpful for many clients who otherwise struggle with visualization of their project.

“The bulk of my career in architecture has been firmly and happily spent in the Fine Art world of the commonly known 2D hand rendering style and the skillful play between pen weights and poche, or shadows. However, there is an incredible shift in this profession today that is even more beautiful – 3D modeling and BIM production in ARCHICAD. Graphisoft has built for my firm such a powerful platform for rendering that today’s most savvy clients get excited. No matter the style or size of architecture, the production end of ARCHICAD and BIM makes this architect and business owner excited!”
