MASTERS of ARCHICAD 2017 - International Team of Experts Teaches Groundbreaking Online Training Course

We're going to show how to efficiently and effectively use ARCHICAD on real projects in a way that makes your firm money.

MASTERS of ARCHICAD 2017 is the latest edition of the groundbreaking program that unites ARCHICAD experts from around the world in sharing cutting-edge knowledge and experience with users from dozens of countries. The adventure launches July 12, 2017, running for 16 live webinar sessions through February 2018, with a full day web-based Summit conference in March 2018.

Directed by internationally recognized educator Eric Bobrow, the new training will teach the latest ARCHICAD Best Practices methods for project organization, development and collaboration.

Austrian architect Andreas Lettner will team with UK architect Timothy Ball to teach the online training webinars; both are highly respected veteran users and teachers of the software. The complex 60 room hotel design on an Austrian hillside (adapted from one of Lettner's real-world projects) will be developed and constructed from concept through working drawings. In addition to developing an integrated 3D model, 2D construction documents, and presentation renderings, BIM data will be carried throughout the process for cost and quantity analysis, specifications reporting and IFC-based consultant collaboration.

Additional ARCHICAD experts from several continents will join the team to present specialty training segments covering complex modeling, best practices for large projects, and interior fit-out for branding and high-end visualization.

The collaboration of the three directors will combine decades of experience in using ARCHICAD on projects of all sizes. In addition to the actual hotel project that was adapted for the training, Lettner's work ranges from small custom residences on up to large public works including a railway station in St. Anton Austria. Ball is well known for pushing the limits of ARCHICAD's technology while maintaining a profitable small practice. He comments: "We're going to show how to efficiently and effectively use ARCHICAD on real projects in a way that makes your firm money."

Bobrow's extensive experience creating online training courses and add-on products for ARCHICAD enables him to direct the overall project in a way that will reach hundreds of users and communicate clearly the latest Best Practices methods for ARCHICAD 21.
