In this course, Josh Bone will show you how to create detailed 3D models in ArchiCAD 20.

First you will learn the basics of ArchiCAD and how to navigate within the software. Then, you will learn how to draw walls, add stories, and place objects, columns & beams. Finally you will learn about documentation within the software and how to place labels, identify sections & elevations, and incorporate external file formats.

When you are done with this course, beginner level users will know how to create a detailed model using the most common authoring tools within the software while still maintaining flexible workflows that allow you to edit and make changes to your models throughout the different design phases. Intermediate level users will learn modeling techniques that improve their productivity within the software.

We do have just like we do in the wall settings, we have very similar capabilities within the Beam Tool. We have our geometry and positioning. One of the differences between the Wall Tool and the Beam Tool is we had the ability to set a beam at an angle, we can cant our wall, we can batt our walls, and just like our slabs and everything else we can grab our walls, and as we click on our walls here, it's easy enough to curve the edges and do other things.
