We do consulting. That’s why the company is named Bobrow Consulting Group.

Any other questions?

Perhaps you might like to know what we can handle for you. We can help you with almost anything related to ArchiCAD – training, implementation assistance, project assistance, production, rendering, animation, GDL programming, etc.

We also do web stuff. I create and maintain all of my web properties at this point (www.bobrow.com, www.acbestpractices.com, www.actemplate.com) as well as several for my wife. I’ve created websites for clients and have consultants who work with me or independently to create or enhance websites on contract. If you have an interesting web project, and you think it would be cool to work with me and/or my team, give me a call.

I’m getting really immersed in the new world of web 2.0 and 3.0 (no, I can’t tell you exactly what that is, but I can feel it coming) and the wild and wooly world of internet marketing. I’m becoming an expert in all this stuff, sometimes taking too much time away from the ArchiCAD stuff. Alas, there are only 24 hours in a day and I have to sleep a few of them – not too many, I assure you.

Anyway, this is an area that I may pursue even more before too long. There are so many things that can make our lives better, that can help our businesses connect with customers better, and I love learning what’s possible and helping people achieve their dreams and goals with technology. So we’ll just have to see how far I go into this as a consultant, won’t we?

I purchased the Master Template more than a year ago and have been generally pleased with the product. I would like to discuss with you how to have the template stripped down and customized to best accommodate my small residential practice. Please contact me to discuss the services you offer.


    Eric Bobrow - August 22, 2014

    Hello Erik –
    Thanks for your post – I’m glad to know that MasterTemplate has been generally helpful for you with your ArchiCAD work.
    I will send you an email to discuss what you need.
    Also – feel free to call me at 310-569-5916.

I have a file teamwork in version 19 and will move to version 20, it has some part as an embedded module, as I do?
Thank you!

    Eric Bobrow - November 3, 2016

    Hi Roberto –
    When you open the main file in 20, it will likely report that the module is missing; it will not cause a problem, since the data will still be there, however to relink the module (and eliminate the warning message) you will need to open the module file in AC20 and save a new version; then switch out the hotlink to the new version.

BAZIRA DENIS - April 24, 2020

Hello, thanks for the best archicard helpful tutorials. Can I please know how to save archicad as a pdf in archicad 9. I don’t see that option like in other later versions.

    Eric Bobrow - April 24, 2020

    Hello Bazira – It has been more than 13 years since I used ArchiCAD 9, so I don’t know what is built in to the software tools.
    In general, you can create PDF files from any application by using a PDF utility that acts like a printer. This is built into the Mac OS (when you go to print, there is an option at the bottom of the print dialog to Save As PDF) and can be added to Windows by installing a PDF utility. You’ll have to Google this, I don’t know what would be available, but there most likely is something that can be installed that would act like a printer but instead of printing, would save a digital version of the print job as a PDF.

Darwin Alejandro - August 18, 2020

Hello, quick question, do you have a course in Spanish?

It is from version 22 or 23, because I took a course and it was from many versions that confused me.

    Eric Bobrow - August 19, 2020

    Darwin – Many years ago, I had a colleague translate some of my course materials into Spanish. We didn’t get enough students, so we abandoned the effort. At this point, I do not have plans to create anything further in Spanish, sorry. – Eric

Yesa - October 27, 2020

Hello, I have some problems with Archicad 22, The problem is ” Cannot save plan file”. Even when I open a new blank file and try to save it, the problem is the same. Please help me, I have to get my job done.

Thanks a lot

    Eric Bobrow - October 27, 2020

    Yesa – I don’t know what exactly is going on, but here are some general troubleshooting tips you can try:
    1. Try saving in a different location, perhaps your desktop or your documents folder, see if the location is causing the issue.
    2. Try restarting your computer, sometimes things get messed up and they improve after a restart.
    3. Try resetting ARCHICAD; pull down the File menu, hold down Shift (or it may be Option or ALT) and select New; with an extra key held down, it will say New and Reset. This will restore ARCHICAD’s out of the box settings.
    4. If that doesn’t help, you may go to the extreme fix of uninstalling ARCHICAD, then reinstalling from scratch.

    By the way, have you attempted to contact Graphisoft tech support for this issue?


garychan - April 9, 2021

I just bought AMT and found that AMT24 lacks a lot of texture maps, how can I solve it? I Can’t contact you, take a screenshot and send your Instagram account

    Eric Bobrow - May 6, 2021

    Gary – I responded via email to your question, however I’m not sure whether you received it since I don’t think I saw a reply come through. I believe the issue is caused by a mismatch in your Archicad Library to the version of MasterTemplate you downloaded. I gave you instructions for how to download the International English version of Archicad so you can use the most compatible library. Let me know if you still need assistance.

I want to create a symbol text that can be moved using hotspot,
But………..when I create a hotspot, the red hotspot will not be in the middle of the object. What should I do?

Thanks a lot

Jacqueline Lichterman - April 11, 2022

We are a pre-fab home company and we use ArchiCAD and your Master Template too. I have an employee that needs some training. He has been workin with us for a year but he seams to be slow. We want to make sure we give him all the tools to succeed.
I am wondering if you can give us some training prices and consider that he is semi knowledgable about ArchiCAD.
You will probably need to asses where he is at.

Please email me and let me know your availability. Thanks, Jacquie

    Eric Bobrow - April 14, 2022

    Hi Jacqueline – Thanks for inquiring about my Archicad training resources. I will email you to set up a time we can have a conversation.
    – Eric
