From AutoCAD to ARCHICAD: Integrating BIM to your Workflow

March 27 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm

If you’re an AutoCAD user looking for simple ways to adopt BIM and the right reasons to do so, please join us for this free seminar where we’ll introduce you to:

  • A simple BIM process.
  • Advantages and new technologies that it procures.
  • How smooth the transition can be between working in traditional CAD and the BIM.
  • Testimonials of Small and medium size BIM adopters. 


AutoCAD is a very powerful program, but it’s falling short of coordinating with newer technologies—all while the adopters of BIM are constantly improving their deliverables. After all, the BIM is what streamlines a project’s workflow so users can:

  • Better explore your project and therefore improve your design.
  • Avoid mistakes due to different modifications.
  • Improve the coordination between the different disciplines.
  • Better analyze the building’s properties.
  • Better communicate ideas in your project.


At the End of this Session, You Will Understand:

  • The BIM process, as well as current technologies that can be harnessed through a BIM workflow.
  • A simplification of the workflow through BIM, allowing for improved design.
  • Improvement of communication with clients and contractors.
  • How to flawlessly communicate between AutoCAD and BIM software like ARCHICAD, importing and exporting with DWG, and building your project from AutoCAD drawings into a smart model.
  • The transition to BIM and its financial implications.

Topic Covered:

  • Introduction to BIM
  • How to successfully adopt BIM
  • Testimonials of BIM adopters
  • Basic BIM operations
  • Working within the BIM in 2D, the AutoCAD way
  • Importing AutoCAD files, inserting XREF files
  • Automatic elevations, sections, and plan layouts
  • Automatic dimensioning—interior and exterior
  • Productivity increases and cost of ownership
  • Advanced visualization techniques
  • And more!

Snacks and refreshments will be served!
