ALL MEMBERS – The success of using ARCHICAD on any project is in part due to it’s flexibility to model design elements that have custom forms. In this seminar we will review several projects including a modern residence on the California coast and an historic library conversion in Alameda that both showcase how to architects, builders and designers can create an ARCHICAD model with a high level of detail. Join us as we discuss quick methods to add detail to your projects with profiles, reduce time creating design elements using custom components and review how to recreate historical detailing within a BIM model.
