“Once again, GRAPHISOFT North America demonstrates its commitment to supporting new users,” says Tracey Gatland, general manager for GRAPHISOFT North America. “This ARCHICAD course accelerates implementation of our powerful BIM tool for a newcomer, which is a win-win for current and future architects and designers.”
Led by Josh Bone, architect and BIM expert recognized for proficiency in technology integration, the easy-to-follow course shows how to create detailed 3-D models quickly and efficiently.
“Black Spectacles is committed to providing a world-class online learning experience for architects, covering the profession’s most important digital tools,” adds Marc Teer, founder and CEO of Black Spectacles. “We’re thrilled to have partnered with Josh Bone and GRAPHISOFT to develop the first in a series of courses that will help architects learn how to use ARCHICAD in practice.”
Beginning with simple navigation instruction, the course works through the software in a methodical manner that is easy to follow. In the first module, users learn how to draw walls; add stories; and place objects, columns and beams. Upon completion, course students gain familiarity with documentation in ARCHICAD, as well as how to place labels, identify sections and elevations, and incorporate external file formats.
