Discover Best Practices for Design Teams Using Archicad & Revit®

Architectural collaboration between Archicad users and Revit® users poses challenges different from traditional 2D CAD collaboration. As with most design process challenges, it is important to “Start with the end in mind.” Therefore, the course will start with a focus on reasonable expectations for architectural BIM collaboration workflows.

In small projects, it may be feasible to use one design tool. But the larger the project, the more stakeholders and disciplines are involved, so one tool becomes less likely to be the best for everyone, and interoperability workflows become essential.
