ArchiCAD Basic Training Course Overview

The four sessions introduce the concepts of BIM and how to model a virtual building within Archicad. You will learn to navigate within a virtual building environment, explore basic modeling techniques and discover how to manage a building information model.

Part 1:  Understanding Concepts & Tools
In this first section you will learn how to use Archicad in the early stages of a design. Beginning with the basic concepts of ArchiCAD, the class progresses through project setup including stories, layers and model views.

Part 2:  Creating a BIM Model
Here you will discover how to use Archicad’s modeling tools to develop the building design. We will review the tools used to create the building shell including foundation, floors, walls, roof, ceilings, curtain walls, windows and doors.

Part 3:  Adding Detail to Your Model
We will continue to work with the modeling tools in this section. The focus will be on the creation of stairs, complex walls, site components, interiors, modifying floors and adding railings into a design.

Part 4:  Documenting Your Project
Finally, we will explore how to create views from the building model. You will learn about creating sections, elevations, callouts and model views as well as the creation and modification of drawing sheets.
