What this book covers?
Chapter 1, Project Setup, and Modeling a Residential Project, helps you to get started using ArchiCAD by creating your first project. You will get an introduction to the ArchiCAD graphic user interface (GUI), as you learn about project settings and how they drive your project environment. Then, you will see how easy it is to model walls, doors, windows, and a roof for your new house!
Chapter 2, Objects, Drafting, and Annotation – A Residential Project, will teach you how to create your own custom objects to add to your new house. This chapter will introduce you to the tools used for text creation and 2D line work. You will feel right at home with the tools in this chapter because they are very similar to all the basic tools in any standard CAD program.
Chapter 3, Documentation – A Residential Project, will get into forming the finished look of your project. You will learn about views, how to manipulate what is displayed on your drawings, and how to control the way it is graphically displayed. Then, you will learn about creating sheets and the super-easy way to put views on them.
Chapter 4, Project Setup, and Modeling Part I – A Healthcare Building Project will help you set up what will be used as the shell and core model for your commercial building. In this chapter, you will dig a little deeper into ArchiCAD’s project environment settings, and learn to use more advanced modeling tools. This will provide the framework for your new building.
Chapter 5, Project Setup, and Modeling Part II – A Healthcare Building Project, will cover creating the interiors model to be used together with the shell and core model created in the previous chapter. You will get the project settings put in place, and link the shell and core model in. Then, you will model all the interior walls, and have fun inserting furniture, casework, and appliances.
Chapter 6, Objects, Drafting, and Annotation – A Healthcare Building Project, will dig deeper into making your own custom objects. You may find that creating your own custom objects it a lot of fun and your favorite thing to do. In this chapter, you will also learn about the other annotation tools available in ArchiCAD, as well as advanced detail creation.
Chapter 7, Documentation – A Commercial Project, will teach you more about view creation, view management, sheet creation, and drawing management. This chapter will help ensure that you fully understand how to control the look and feel of your drawings. You may not realize it at first, but this knowledge is essential to a successful project.
Chapter 8, Work Sharing with ArchiCAD, will teach you about data extraction, and the many different ways to incorporate different types of drawing formats into your projects. Also, it will teach you how to export your work into multiple different file formats for other parties to utilize in their work. You will find that ArchiCAD is second to none in this category.
Chapter 9, Visualization and Model Management, will be fun when learning about rendering, animations, and virtual environment ly-through models. We end the book with model management and best practices. Model management may sound boring, but it will help you keep your project in good shape.
