Now you can learn the best ways to ease the transition from AutoCAD to ArchiCAD from your Web Browser, PC, Mac, iPhone, iPad, BlackBerry, or Android Phone. The book, “ArchiCAD for AutoCAD Users”, written by Scott MacKenzie and Simon Gilbert is now available for Kindle reading apps. The e-book can be purchased through Amazon’s website, and it also available for free, with no due dates, if you are a Kindle owner and an Amazon Prime member. It is a book you’ll want to have at hand as you complete your transition from AutoCAD to ArchiCAD. It will become an essential office tool and handy reference guide. The easy to follow text will take you through the learning curve and make you a confident ArchiCAD user quickly.
“ArchiCAD for AutoCAD Users” is a great way to supplement your ArchiCAD Users Guide - and can assist moving from an extensive but general CAD package like AutoCAD, to an advanced, architecturally-intelligent (BIM) package like ArchiCAD. First published in 2002, ”ArchiCAD for AutoCAD Users” (based on ArchiCAD 7.0) supported efforts to migrate architectural practices from 2D workflows to Virtual Building based design and documentation. Since then the book has gone through a revision or two, having been updated for ArchiCAD 12 and now ArchiCAD 15. The purpose of this book is to address the needs of more experienced AutoCAD users and was completely revamped for ArchiCAD 15.
And for even more detailed explanation and helpful tips, remember to take advantage of an educational webinar, hosted by Scott MacKenzie. In just one hour, you’ll learn some of the simplest terms and the most comprehensive definitions about what it takes to adopt a new BIM software solution. That adoption can be intimidating, especially in cases where time has been invested in learning the commands, techniques, shortcuts, and work-arounds required to create architectural drawings in 2D software.
