Conclusion To ArchiCAD For Beginners


In this course, Josh Bone will show you how to create detailed 3D models in ArchiCAD 20.

First you will learn the basics of ArchiCAD and how to navigate within the software. Then, you will learn how to draw walls, add stories, and place objects, columns & beams. Finally you will learn about documentation within the software and how to place labels, identify sections & elevations, and incorporate external file formats.

When you are done with this course, beginner level users will know how to create a detailed model using the most common authoring tools within the software while still maintaining flexible workflows that allow you to edit and make changes to your models throughout the different design phases. Intermediate level users will learn modeling techniques that improve their productivity within the software.

This concludes our ArchiCAD Jumpstart course. In this course, we learned about the ArchiCAD work environment, tips to improve your productivity when modeling and documenting, how to create a detailed model that can help automate your documentation process. It's important to know all of this because it's a basis for all BIM workflows, creating a clean model enables architects to better communicate their designs while reducing errors and omissions in their construction documents.

Now you know how to create a building information model that can be used for coordination, sequencing, takeoffs, and much, much more. Don't forget, you can always come back to this course if you need a refresher. Thanks for watching and remember to check out the other courses that we're always updating on
