Lessons from an Archicad Jedi Master - Eric Bobrow

Having trouble with Archicad? Do you want to save hours of work with a few simple tips? Well our long-time colleague Eric Bobrow, internationally recognised Archicad expert and author, has brought out a new online training course on the most effective methods for working with ArchiCAD and not battling with it.

Eric was a major Graphisoft reseller for 21 years, and is the author of over 20 Tips and Tricks articles and video tips published on the ArchiCAD Wiki, AECbytes, Cadalyst and other sites. 

After contacting me on Twitter, I got a chance to talk to Eric on Skype for a bit about the new course as well as his contribution to the Archicad and BIM community. His experience from working closely with architectural practices and designers is a shiny warehouse of in-depth knowledge that he is willing to share with everyone wanting to go from Rookie to Archicad Jedi Master. His 5 minute "Quick Change" video alone saved a client around 2 hours of tedious work on a recent project.

His article on "The 7 Keys to Best Practices for ArchiCAD" was just posted on the AECbytes web portal, where he covers seven key principles that will make a big difference in how effective and efficient you are in ArchiCAD. It’s definitely worth a read, print, lamination or even a frame if you like. He’s even gone a step further, giving us the chance to see these impressive tips in action, in the 7keys” videos he’s created over on the site.

This preview of the upcoming Best Practices Course, an online training resource for ArchiCAD users, will teach you how to:

* Get Organized in the Right Ways
* Save Time by Reusing Your Setup and Settings
* Start Fast and Clean and Add More Detail As You Go
* Create Great-looking Drawings Directly from Your 3D Model
* Keep Your Work Safe with An Easy Backup Strategy

Eric has a great skill at explaining complex concepts and processes in an easy to understand way. I’m sure you’ll find out after you see some of the videos he’s the right man for the job. When you opt-in at the website to watch the free videos you'll get more info about the course and how to access more of the content. 

The videos will only be available for a limited time, so it's a good idea to view or download them soon! Registration for the online course will open up later this month and I promise you, these only scratch the surface of the goldmine!
