This remote learning course is intended as a preface to Basic and Intermediate Archicad training courses, for those coming from AutoCAD® and SketchUp® workflows.

We will explore leveraging the 3D model from design development through to the construction documents phase. We’ll produce massing models and complete documentation, interactive schedules, and compelling 3D graphics.
