Remote Learning: ARCHICAD Creative Documentation and BIMx

May 8 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Better Communicate Your Design Ideas

In this remote learning course, we’ll look at how you can move beyond the discrete functions of your BIM platform for producing standard deliverables. You’ll learn how to combine a variety of ARCHICAD’s visualization abilities to generate more visually dynamic material that better conveys your designs ideas.
