Blogger, Jared Banks shares his recent experience at the GRAPHISOFT Key Client Conference, which was held from June 5th through June 7th, 2014. More than 200 ArchiCAD users and Graphisoft employees gathered in Budapest, Hungary for the event.
In this post from Jared, we get some understanding about how the PDF advancements in ArchiCAD 18 give the architect better control over file size. Read on to learn what causes “file bloat” and put your files on a diet!
Even the smallest of projects can get bogged down, decreasing the speed of everything from selecting an element to generating the 3D window. While ArchiCAD becoming sluggish is bad in itself, this slowness often raises the potential for file crashes. Even if a project doesn’t slow down, an ill-maintained and operated project can also cause more crashes than you should have to deal with.
If you are just joining us, this is the Sixth post in my Pen Sets series. Posts one through three are from Shoegnome and reference mostly ArchiCAD 11. Posts Four and Five were recently published on BIM Engine and update my theories for ArchiCAD 17 (and everything else I’ve learned since 2011).
Are you excited about ArchiCAD 18? I sure am. While we wait for June 2014 and the official roll out, it’s worth looking at the big picture of what this release signifies. Don’t worry, there will be plenty of time to go into all the nitty-gritty of this version soon enough.
