Course Overview

The four, two-hour sessions introduce the concepts of BIM and how to model a virtual building within ArchiCAD. You will learn to navigate within a virtual building environment, explore basic modeling techniques and discover how to manage a building information model.

 

Part 1:  Starting a Design
In this first section you will learn how to use ArchiCAD in the early stages of a design. Beginning with the basic concepts of ArchiCAD, the class progresses through project setup including stories, layers and model views.


Part 2:  Developing a BIM Model
Here you will discover how to use ArchiCAD's modeling tools to develop the building design. We will review the tools used to create the building shell including foundation, floors, walls, roof, ceilings, curtain walls, windows and doors.


Part 3:  Detailing the BIM Model

We will continue to work with the modeling tools in this section. The focus will be on the creation of stairs, complex walls, site components, interiors, modifying floors and adding railings into a design.

Part 4:  Documenting Your Project Using Views

Finally, we will explore how to create views from the building model. You will learn about creating sections, elevations, callouts and model views as well as the creation and modification of drawing sheets.
