Get your clients on-board with your designs by engaging them with clear and realistic visualizations and walk-throughs

In this remote learning course, we’ll look at how you can move beyond the discrete functions of your BIM platform for producing standard deliverables. You’ll learn how to combine a variety of Archicad’s visualization abilities to generate more visually dynamic material that better conveys your designs ideas.
