Archicad II - 3D Design Representation


This course introduces the concept of Building Information Modeling (BIM) with ArchiCAD 10 at its core. From within the BIM framework, students will learn and master the use of building components, navigate through the actively linked views of the building (plans, sections, elevations, details, perspective views, cutaway perspective views, renderings), compose a design presentation, and document a project for constructability/construction. At the start of the course students will be challenged with modeling several complete building examples. Each project will emphasize, with increasing complexity, a BIM methodology for generating competent models for design explorations and for presentation. The course will culminate with the modeling and documentation of an approved project of the student's choice.
