Today, April 18th 2019 is my 65th birthday!
And by coincidence (in terms of important milestones), it's my 30th year working with ARCHICAD; and last week, my ARCHICAD Tutorials YouTube channel reached 25,000 subscribers.
I'm sharing the event with my ARCHICAD tribe, and you're invited (of course) to celebrate with me this special occasion in a special edition of the ARCHICAD USER monthly webinar.
In today's session, I'll be giving you my perspective on the ARCHICAD journey along with two guests who played very important roles.
If you're not already registered, click here to join us at 1 pm PDT or you can catch the recording later on the ARCHICAD USER website.

Taking ARCHICAD Beyond Design: Cost Estimation and Construction Management
with Roderick Anderson & John Hallgarth
Info & Registration: https://archicaduser.com
We're resuming the monthly ARCHICAD USER webinar series with an exciting session featuring two veterans who leverage the ARCHICAD model for cost estimation and construction management.
Learn how these experts set up their ARCHICAD projects and manage data for accurate quantity take-offs and interface with a variety of tools for management, reporting and communication including BIMx Pro, Bluebeam and Excel.
I'll introduce and moderate the discussion, and guide the Q&A. It's going to be a fascinating deep dive into this vital area where design, cost and construction processes meet.
Wherever you are on the journey towards ARCHICAD mastery, I'm pretty sure you want to continue to learn and improve your skills and optimize your workflow so that you can derive the maximum benefit from this amazing tool.
That's exactly what I want for YOU - and all other ARCHICAD users.
I'm producing a bunch of new free video tutorials to share with the community.
AND I'm putting all of my products on sale.
A BIG sale.
It's going to be "Black Friday - all month long!"
Over the next few weeks, I'll be producing a new series of 7 free video tutorials, tentatively titled:
This is going to be fun.
Lots of quick tips and tricks, and examples you can use.
Short videos (for me) - I'm aiming for 5 to 15 minutes each.
I'll even be including cool downloads to make it easy to do some of these tricks.
Help yourself to some bargains on ARCHICAD training and on MasterTemplate.

UPDATE (November 6, 2018)
The international metric edition of AMT22 was published last week, along with a revamped USA version and an improved Sample Project. In the month following the webinar recording, I was able to do a significant amount of additional optimization based on user feedback and my own observations and tests. I’m very pleased with the results and proud to share AMT22 with the ARCHICAD community.
P.S. Cornelis Wegman from Australia posted a comment that made me aware that the framing profiles I had set up were generating linework that went against 2D drawing conventions, with the cross-hatch lines heavier than the outline. I was able to change that quite easily, so the template now produces even better looking sections of the 3D model. Here is a screenshot from the revised section:
I have also corrected a couple of issues that I noticed in the demonstration (you may notice them in the video recording) and further enhanced the settings for Electrical Plans to make the electrical elements stand out clearly against the faint grey background of the building.
MasterTemplate is always going to be a work in progress…however I’m extremely happy with the progress made this year!
