In this course, Josh Bone will demonstrate methods for creating optimized models using ArchiCAD 21.
We will demonstrate methods on how to create granular models that can enable you to extract more views from the model for documentation which will reduce errors and omissions as a byproduct.
When you are done with this course, you'll know how to find ways to leverage the BIM from the early design phases through design into construction.

We often run into issues with ArchiCAD when we export out to DWG of multiple lines, overlapping, fills and hatch, and too much information that our consultants have to clean up, so you want to make sure that when you're exporting out DWGs as backgrounds and as references that you keep these as clean as possible so you'll find in your template here that we have a DWG export option under the view map so we have our collaborations folder and under collaboration folder this is for our export, we have our DWG plan exports, we have our DWG RCP export, and then we have an IFC exports folder as well. Now from here, you will see that we've gone in and we've set this up to have a clean model view option, we've set this up to remove all the fills so it's showing the lines but it's removing fills and we have a custom layer combination that's set up for DWG export as well so that it's going to be clean and not export duplicated lines from the template that you're accessing and using through this training session. So that's helped streamline the process.
