In the early 2000’s Cal Poly Pomona began teaching our architecture students the BIM philosophy with ARCHICAD. I quickly came up to speed through its inherent ease of use, ARCHICAD seminars and local user group meetings for use in my practice as a professional architect outside of teaching. I found ARCHICAD fit my needs doing public and institutional projects as well as a teaching platform for my students. Competitor platforms are crippled on many issues, difficult to both learn and use and VERY expensive compared to ARCHICAD.
