New ArchiCAD QuickTip Video Tutorial – Shortcuts for Construction Geometry

My latest ARCHICAD QuickTip video tutorial was inspired by a question that Matthieu Mercinier of Oslo Norway sent in recently to my ARCHICAD Coaching Program.

I took his single question about placing doors and expanded it into a 5 minute review of some little-known time-saving shortcuts for switching geometry and construction methods on the fly.

 

Take 5 minutes to watch it now and try these out as you work in ArchiCAD today. They’re actually fun to use and will save you more time and effort than you realize.

NOTE: These QuickTip videos are inspired by questions sent in by members of my ARCHICAD Coaching Program. If you’d like to get my personal assistance on YOUR questions, get full information here:

  2. Inset an intricate pattern of contrasting stucco finish into a brick wall
  3. Create and clean up a “made to order” ADA-compliant pipe rail for stairs using a set of complex profiles converted into a morph.

ARCHICAD QuickTip #1 Video Tutorial

This ARCHICAD video tutorial is the first in a new series of QuickTips based on questions sent in by members of my ARCHICAD Coaching Program.

 

In this short video, I demonstrate how to:

  1. Show the actual components of wall composites in 3D cutaways using the marquee tool by changing view settings
  2. Cleanly finish off the end of a free-standing interior wall with drywall
  3. Ensure that both ends of a window opening show nice clean solid lines
  4. Change the interior wall surface for just one room
  5. Remove the backsplash off a cabinet and apply tile to the wall surface
  6. Set the starting point for tiles to give a whole tile in the desired location
  7. Push the cabinet back into the wall to the face of framing and remove the overlap using Solid Element Operations
  8. Remove faceting to make a smooth wash basin by increasing the 3D resolution of curvature

These questions were compiled from recent sessions of my ARCHICAD Coaching Program. Members of the program get my personal assistance in working with ARCHICAD.
