Nathan Hildebrandt follows up his previous post with more on how and why you need to focus more on Information when working with ArchiCAD and BIM.
I love this post. Guest Blogger Nathan Hildebrandt starts with Building Materials, then leads you down a path towards reinventing how you think about BIM and use ArchiCAD. It’s a great example of how focusing on improving how you use a piece of software will make you a more valuable member of the AECO team. Even if you don’t use ArchiCAD, this is a must read.
Are you familiar with Building Collaboration Format? The BCF Managers for ArchiCAD and Revit bring this functionality directly to your BIM authoring tool.
