You are not efficient with your BIM technology projects or haven’t even started yet? Be one of the first and learn Archicad with the AGA Studio experience here!

I will show you step by step how to create a house project from the absolute zero! The BIM concept is based on the use of 3D modeling with construction information, which automatically generate drawings of floor plans, sections, façades and details by a two-dimensional reading of the 3D model. We do all this on the computer together with our custom template. All you need is your laptop and the software installed on it. You will learn skills and knowledge that will benefit you for the rest of your life.

The video lessons are divided into 10 sections, where a house project is done from the beginning to the end: we start by presenting BIM concepts, we show the use of DWG reference drawings for terrain modeling, structure modeling, walls, doors and windows, roof, 2D drawings settings (floor plans, sections, façades, etc.), arrangement of the project boards, publication in PDF / DWG and Rendering.

My studio, AGA – Alexandre Gonçalves Architecture, has been successful with international experiences since 2016, and I am personally an Archicad user since 2009. This Archicad training will be a life-changing in your architect/designer career.
