This week we’ll explore ArchiCAD’s structure further, primarily looking at the Navigator palette, which is composed of 4 main parts:
Part 1 is a 20 minute video examining the difference between the Project Map and the View Map, which users often get confused. I explain the unique functions of each, and make recommendations for when you should use each one.
Part 2 provides a short (11 minute) introduction to creating and managing Views, and the meaning of each of the View Settings parameters.
Part 3 is a 19 minute study of basic usage and principles of layers and layer combinations. How many layers do you need, and how many layer combinations are optimum?
Please add your comments, questions and feedback below or on the individual pages.
