BIM6x Template Kit Details
As many BIM users already know, and it doesn’t matter which BIM platform you are using, engaging in a new BIM solution can involve a steep learning curve. Not only are users getting used to a whole new paradigm shift (away from 2D CAD) but users will quickly discover that BIM’s “information centric” approach yields maximum results once a BIM implementation has been finely tuned for the demands of a particular office’s workflow.
What BIM6x provides to the architectural community is an entire ArchiCAD “on-boarding” process, helping architectural firms more effectively get up-to-speed on BIM as a new workflow methodology. As part of this process, the company offers a rich bench of ArchiCAD templates, starter sample files, library items, BIM6x manuals and extras.
