This week we’ll look at how to use ArchiCAD’s structure by applying several guiding principles.
Part 1 is a 35 minute lesson on how to model in 3D so well that you have very little clean-up or additional linework to add in 2D to create sections and elevations for your construction documents.
Part 2 is a 16 minute lesson on the use of “placeholders” (generic, simple versions of walls, windows, doors etc.) during early design, which are later reworked to be more specific at the appropriate time.
Part 3 is a 31 minute lesson that demonstrates how proper referencing and anchoring of elements will help ArchiCAD maintain your design intent.

This 35 minute lesson explores a variety of methods, settings and approaches to modeling to create clean, detailed elevations and sections.
This 16 minute lesson examines how to use "placeholders" (generic, simple versions of walls, windows, doors etc.) during early design, later reworking them to be more specific at the appropriate time.
