When an important show like Architecture Boston Expo (ABX) comes to your backyard, it is definitely a reason to get excited. Visitors to this show will see GRAPHISOFT everywhere, not only where we are exhibiting from the booth, but also in breakout sessions where we are hosting introductory as well as advanced training sessions of ArchiCAD. Plus, we are taking our game-changing new mobile app BIMx Docs to the main stage to present all of its features, including the way it combines 2D plans with 3D model views – bringing BIM to the construction site, client office, homeowner’s living room – wherever you need it.
Visit us in booth #758 to see all the changes we’ve made to the latest version of ArchiCAD 17 at the Boston Convention & Exhibition Center from November 19-21 in Boston, Massachusetts.
We are thrilled to be demonstrating BIMx Docs on the main stage at this year’s ABX. The brand new mobile presentation app, just released in October, is already a top-rated app for architects. Demonstrations of BIMx Docs will take over the learning stage on Wednesday beginning at noon. Attendees will see how the BIMx Hyper-model is a revolutionary technology that brings BIM to the construction site and takes presentations to a level never before seen on an iPad or iPhone. Full integration of 2D and 3D plans are at your fingertips with smooth game-like navigation for projects of any size or complexity. BIMx Docs is available on the App store in a free and paid version.
In the first of two sessions being offered at ABX, the ArchiCAD BIM Introduction Session B02 – scheduled for Wednesday 11/20 from 8 to 9:30 am – instructor Kevin Losso GRAPHISOFT Technical Support Engineer will lead a hands-on class designed to introduce attendees and participants to BIM in ArchiCAD. Key foundation concepts will be shown to help the user develop ways to leverage Virtual Building in the BIM process. Losso will provide techniques for accurately modeling basic elements and documenting them within ArchiCAD.
A second session led by GRAPHISOFT Product Manager, Yanni Alexakis, B26, also on Wednesday 11/20 from 10 to 11:30 am is a more in-depth exploration of ArchiCAD. This session will expand on the foundations gained from the introductory session, making the transition from “general” to the “specific” so that users can truly develop a system that automates the documentation of building information. Alexakis will demonstrate the ways in which data views, such as element schedules and zone information can be develop directly from the model. He’ll show you tools and techniques for documenting complex elements and forms as well.
