Link Tabs September 21, 2015 Comments

ARCHICAD 19 brings us Tabs, but what are they, why were they introduced and what's the most efficient way to use them? We'll answer all these questions as we take an in-depth look at what tabs can and can’t do, then armed with that knowledge introduce best practices to use them efficiently. And who better to collaborate with than the GRAPHISOFT Product Designer tasked with implementing Tabs into ARCHICAD: James Badcock?

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.

“Having used Revit and Archicad extensively, I can without hesitation say that Archicad is BIM for architects. The ease of workflow from pre-design to schematic design to construction documents makes it ideal. There are so many time saving features. The fact that I can collaborate globally with minimal setup and that I can create anything my imagination comes up with is a great benefit to my architectural practice.”
