BIMx offers a feature for locating building components in the Virtual Building easily, which greatly helps with checking and marking up these elements on site. To access BIM elements in the 3D model quickly, insert these hyperlinks into any website, a Facilities Management database or into a product catalog application.

Making Dreams a Reality with ARCHICAD

Wednesday, July 13th, 2016

Settlers Ridge ExtToronto-based, Discovery Dream Homes, creates custom log and timber frame homes using ARCHICAD. At any given time, some 40 projects are in progress – all managed and built in ARCHICAD.

A model home just outside the city shows potential clients what Discovery Dream Homes can create – but the team relies heavily on creating 3D presentations in ARCHICAD and shares them via the award-winning presentation app, BIMx.

“We use BIMx for every project we do. It had a profound impact on our presentation style from the moment it was introduced to us,” explained Shawn Hunter. “When people are trying to decide whether to hire us or not, BIMx tips the scales in our favor every time.”

Be a Triple Threat by Combining ArchiCAD, BIMx and Skills

Thursday, July 31st, 2014

Jackson Hole, Wyoming based Chris Lee of Design Associates Architects has been relying on ArchiCAD since the late nineties – to design residential, commercial and industrial projects. As a sole proprietor, Lee says he is always looking for ways to be efficient and help his practice thrive. Lee takes advantage of the powerful combination of his skills and ArchiCAD to be the most efficient and compete with firms of larger size. One of his go-to features of ArchiCAD is BIMx and he exploits it to his advantage time and time again.ArchiCAD

ArchiCAD “Back when BIMx was called Virtual Building Explorer I began sending models to clients. The feedback I got was great – for them to be able to experience the design in their own place and time was huge”.

Most recently, this technology proved valuable on a current project he’s managing for an executive client. Lee recently competed with nine other firms, “powerhouses” as he put it, to win a high end residential project. In this type of “David and Goliath” scenario, Lee says he credits his triple threat of “killer tech”, namely ArchiCAD, BIMx Docs and his skills with the win.

Custom Timber Log Homes Customers, Blown Away by BIMx Docs

Compelling Presentations with BIMx

Custom Timber Log Homes with ArchiCAD & BIMxCustom Timber Log Homes manages building design of log homes for the Eastern Region of the US and Canada. Chris Sparks is part owner of the company and tells us he sees each project through to blueprints and construction completion with ArchiCAD. As a long-time ArchiCAD user, Sparks has been familiar with BIMx – GRAPHISOFT’s presentation tool – and has been capitalizing on its features since its inception in 2012. The application’s ability to demonstrate the plans and designs of the log homes his company creates provides a wonderful tool. So when BIMx Docs – the next generation of presentation tool that combines 2D drawings with the 3D documents – was released in October of 2013, Sparks was anxious to try it.

“I’ve been using ArchiCAD since version 8 and BIMx for a year and a half. I always get fantastic feedback – people are blown away by what I can show them and what the software itself can do. With the advent of BIMx Docs – being able to map the BIM and the construction documents – well, we’re at a whole other level of wow.”

Being the Most Efficient – With ArchiCAD

Thursday, June 5th, 2014

I might be dating myself with this reference, but as soon as I hung up the phone from interviewing John Black of Lapis Design Partners – I immediately heard “Oh Yeah!!!” and the sound of the Kool-Aid pitcher crashing through a cinder block wall… Why? Well, because in his own words, Black has admitted to drinking the ArchiCAD Kool-Aid – and this is his story.

It all began for Black with ArchiCAD on version five. He told me he believes the best thing Autocad ever did was drop their Macintosh platform. Luckily for him, it happened just at the moment he began looking for a software program. Having been a Mac user, with no plans to change, he was ready to go from hand-drafting right into ArchiCAD. As with many users we’ve interviewed here on the blog, he had two weeks to get up to speed enough to create a design and presentation. (more…)
