Subject 1 - Refining ArchiCAD for Visualisation
This subject has 6 topics and runs for approximately 14 minutes:
1.1 - Template (2:14)
Using an effective template file reduces the required setup for each project. In this video we'll review the template, optimised for the processes of visualisation.
1.2 - Toolbars (2:58)
ArchiCAD's work environment determines our digital interface experience. In this video we'll review which settings will aid efficiency in visualisation.
1.3 - Importing Libraries (2:36)
Furniture and entourage objects add scale, function & style to a 3D model. Objects can be imported from ArchiCAD's own library, downloaded from within ArchiCAD's library interface, or imported from external sources. In this video we'll review the recommended processes for importing library objects.
1.4 - Importing Textures & 3D Texture Alignment (2:18)
Surface textures suggest scale and materiality to a 3D model. Beyond the use of ArchiCAD's own surface library, high-res and unique textures can be applied within ArchiCAD's surface editor, or imported from external sources. In this video we'll review the recommended processes for editing and creating surfaces.
1.5 - Surface editing using Open GL (5:42)
For fast surface editing, the basic and openGL surface editor allows for fast manipulation of basic surface settings. In this video we'll review how to adjust surface settings in the basic editor.
1.6 - Importing Surfaces (1:09)
The surface catalouge contains a wide range of surfaces not directly accessible through ArchiCAD's surface settings. In this video we'll review the catalouge, and import new surfaces into the project library.
