TweetUp at AIA 2015, Sponsored by GRAPHISOFT

Wednesday, April 29th, 2015

They say the third time’s a charm – so we are super happy to let you know once again GRAPHISOFT is sponsoring one of the hottest events at AIA! The TweetUp!!! That makes three in a row!

As with past years, the TweetUp is a fun in-person event during the AIA National Convention that gives you a unique chance to bring all your virtual relationships built through social networking into reality. We all know that social networking can provide a powerful link to people we normally wouldn’t come across in our regular day to day routine. Through the magic of TwitterFacebook, LinkedIn, tumblr, reddit, StumbleUpon, digg… not to mention blogs, forums, etc… we communicate across time zones, state lines, country borders and even get to know people from other walks of life who share a common interest.


ARCHICAD, the Ideal Software for Cal Poly Students

Monday, April 20th, 2015

California Polytechnic University (Cal Poly) has added BIM as a required course in their curriculum. All students who wish to graduate with a degree in Construction Management must take the course over two quarters. Instructor, Elbert Speidel works to provide comprehensive exposure to the various types of software in the industry today.

“Part of the strategy in being able to teach them BIM is giving them an opportunity to see what is out there. We aren’t exclusively teaching one type of software, since that does not reflect how firms operate. Each firm has its preference and for that reason, there is no one BIM software exclusive to the market.”


Recapping the 2015 GRAPHISOFT North America BIM Conference

Tuesday, April 7th, 2015

The post below first appeared on the GRAPHISOFT North America blog, BIM Engine by ArchiCAD. Written by Jared Banks, AIA, aka Shoegnome, the following essay will provide you, dear reader, with an up close view and thorough review of the 2015 GRAPHISOFT North America BIM Conference. Having been there, I can attest to Jared’s experience, the validity of his assertion about how the event has changed and what attendees gained by being there.

ArchiCAD users share a passion for what they do that is perhaps unmatched elsewhere in the industry. They will spend all day in an educational session learning about ways to capitalize on the power of the software to grow their business, take a break for lunch, during which they’ll continue sharing ideas and experiences on the same subject, go back into another classroom environment for more information, break and talk about the software, lather, rinse, repeat until the sun goes down…
