BIM Experience KIT - Sophisticated 2D drawing and layout functions for architects, interior designers and structural engineers
Version: 11The BIM Experience Kit includes a fully functional 30-day TRIAL version of ArchiCAD 11. You may save your files in order to use them in future sessions. Innovative technology allows users to convert files to be compatible with commercial versions of ArchiCAD upon purchase. Users benefit from the assurance that their files can be taken forward in projects, so the time spent on learning is not lost.

Interactive Learning A two-hour overview of BIM based upon the Frank Lloyd Wright designed Massaro House is included in the download. The tutorial takes users through all major steps in creating a complete BIM project. Steps include designing in a model based environment and generating floor plans, sections, elevations, interior elevations, renderings and quantity take offs.
Assessment Users can track their basic understanding of Building Information Modeling (BIM) online.
Rewards Completed assessments are automatically registered for a chance to win an ArchiCAD program (one drawing per month) as well as a chance to win a trip to Budapest to meet the Graphisoft team in spring of 2008.
Building Information Modeling (BIM) describes three dimensional CAD software solutions which offer model-based technology linked to a database of project information which facilitates exchange and interoperability of information in digital format during the whole building process.
