New ARCHICAD Tutorial: Creating Custom Surfaces from Photos

An interesting question was sent in recently by California architect Luis Barrios asking how to create custom Surfaces in ARCHICAD using photos of stained glass windows from a church that he’s renovating. He wanted to include these artwork images in his 3D views as well as rendered elevation drawings.

Watch this 36 minute video to learn how to integrate artwork images in ARCHICAD 3d views as well as rendered elevation drawings. You’ll also get a glimpse into my ARCHICAD Coaching Program.


P.S. To get my personal assistance on your ARCHICAD questions, check out my ARCHICAD Coaching Program.

The process was straightforward but involved multiple steps and programs, including Photoshop for cropping and straightening images. Download my free cheat sheet step by step summary to refer to when you need to do this for one of your projects (see below).

Great descriptive presentation. Really helped me understand some procedures which were not very clear with me on surfaces.
