Gary Lawes, Jagged Edge Design Ltd, Bristol UK

I run a small Architectural practice and work on the smallest of projects. The latter  was planned, to target a market that few are interested in and to build a strong reputation in that sector.

To maximise profitability in any business, requires every business process to be finely tuned, this is especially so when working on smaller projects. For my CAD/BIM product I chose ArchiCAD. I had worked with all of the major rival products as reseller and distributor, and as such I knew ArchiCAD had the potential to outperform them all, it would however need a great deal of customisation to make it suitable for small domestic projects.

I set out a plan to carry out two hours of ArchiCAD development on every one of my projects, the majority of that time spent developing GDL objects. Now 13 years later I have a very powerful  library of high performance objects.

Every object is designed to support the design process, to provide maximum flexibility, to deliver the best looking documents possible and to produce the highest quality of documentation, all as rapidly and easily as possible.

Utilizing the BIM software enabled to her work both traditionally and with other firms in-person and in teams over the web. One team, food for thot, is a web-based competition team which has won multiple prizes for their entries in numerous BIM Storms.

Her depth of knowledge of ArchiCAD led to teaching ArchiCAD and the integration of BIM for other firms. All together, this continues to realize Erika's personal goal of  working on a variety of projects in the field of Architecture.

Ultimately Erika was asked to write a book “Implementing successful Building Information Modeling' which was published in 2012. Erika continues to design her own buildings,  work in teams, teach ArchiCAD, and be a BIM consultant for other firms. Always a new opportunity...

Karoly Horvath Architect, Project Leader at Machin Designs, Perth, Western Australia

In the past 15 years of my Architectural carrier I have worked for small medium and large architectural design practises in many different countries. My portfolio covers a variety of project types ranging from industrial sheds through 5 star hotels, schools, custodial buildings, multi unit residential projects and office complexes.

All along the way I have always been a perfectionist and never for a moment lost passion for better, smarter more efficient design, documentation or construction. Thinking outside the box is in my veins. In fact, I can’t be forced inside any box easily.

I started using ArchiCAD at version 4.5, and despite all my efforts, I was unable to find any design tool to match it, so I keep on using ArchiCAD and stretch it to its limits in order to give me the desired outcome.

If I was in search for a motto, I would go back to Goethe’s all-time best: “Architecture is like frozen music.” That says it all. There is rhythm and style, passion and love in both architecture and music, yet both can be transferred through an international language onto a sheet of paper…

Quotes from Attendees

Congratulations an thanks for the summit! I could'nt follow all presentations live, but I already have seen almost all of the registered videos, and they had a lot of useful information. I'm looking forward for the other shared materials too.

Gergely Attila, Romania

Keep throwing all the ArchiCad stuff you do my way and I try to keep up.  The ArchiCad summit was awesome!

Darren Dickerson AIA, USA

The sessions were some of the very best I have experienced. The spread of knowledge and the very interesting presentations should be viewed by everyone - even if not directly applicable to current status as the content will be important to anyone willing to use the time to relate and accept. So many relatively simple things that in reality are not simple but really useful.

Lew Bishop, USA

Managed to watch a few of the presentations yesterday as I was too busy during the event to see all of them.

Some good stuff there. Well done in organising such a good initiative.

Gary Lawes, UK

I watched on and off for both days - just too much going on. It was great, can't wait to sit down to watch each session. Each presenter was special in his/her own way.

Bill Medlow, USA

Awesome Session. See you tomorrow. Super excited.

Shawn Hopkins, South Africa

Thx yes. Eventually got in [and watched the Summit live]. Sat all the time nailed till 5:30 am.

So good!

Erich Lutz, South Africa

Great to see the large numbers of attendees for your Summit. Great idea and I am glad I was a part of this event. Really appreciate what you have done for the Archicad community and as a needed tool to get everyone up to speed.

Watched almost all the speakers. Great learning experience! Cinerender and the design build seminar both were fantastic!

Andrew Passacantando, USA

Summit Training Outline & Objectives

Each presentation is approximately 75 minutes in length,
including introductions at the beginning and questions at the end.

Hyper-Efficient, Detailed 3D Modeling

Speaker: Timothy Ball RIBA
Course Description: Start using the full power of Archicad to detail in 3D.

Instead of drawing a detail in 2D construction detail, create a 3D complex profile and re-use it throughout the job. Sections are always correct - no patch detailing required.

You can't fake it in 3D and we all know how easy it is to draw an isolated 2D detail and find it doesn't work on site.

Cinerender Tips and Tricks

Andreas-Lettner-photo 2Speaker: Andreas Lettner
Course Description: Learn from an veteran Cinema 4D (and ArchiCAD) user how you can make beautiful renderings directly inside ArchiCAD with the new Cinerender engine (which is based on C4D).

  • Understanding the cinerender engine.
  • Setting up your own "renderstyle" as a part of your office standards.
  • Decreasing your render time by controlling the number of polygons, light setup and materials

The Data in Your Model is Priceless

Speaker: Benedict Newell Wallbank - RIBA
Course Description: Ben makes abundantly clear the growing value of sharable structured digital data, and encourages you to future proof your practice by starting to understand and structure the data in your models so that it can be used by others.

Design-Build: Luxury Residential done better with ArchiCAD and BIMx Docs

Speaker: Roderick Anderson
Course Description: Roderick shows how ArchiCAD has helped his firm evolve and perfect their Design-Build practice, and how BIMx Docs has changed the workflow during design.

This powerful combination has completely changed the way they think about a set of drawings, empowering their construction teams with amazing 3D visualization and "live plans" for on-site question resolution. 

In short: they are now able to be more efficient, have much fewer errors to correct, and are taking on and winning more work!

Hacking GDL: Practical Parametric Object Making

Speaker: Gary Lawes
Course Description: In simple terms GDL hacking involves modeling an object in ArchiCAD, saving it as a GDL object, and then tweaking the code to add parametric flexibility to the object. It offers an easy way to build smart objects.

During the GDL hacking session Gary shows how to make two very usable GDL objects. –

1. A surface water drainage channel

This is a stretchy object made to exact manufacturers details that will provide a suitable representation in 2D, and a perfect 3D model.

2. A fascia, soffit and guttering assembly

This is again a stretchy object, but will have a little more parametric control and intelligence, this is a chance for you to dip your toe into the real power of GDL with very little effort.

At the end of the session you will have these two smart objects, fully parametrically driven, for your future projects as well as a great understanding of the power of GDL hacking as well as an introduction to the potential of GDL.

ArchiCAD Best Practices and The Ultimate Template

Speaker: Eric Bobrow
Course Description: What are the key principles that guide ArchiCAD Masters (and can help you) to use the software in the most efficient way possible? How can you “go with the flow” rather than fight or struggle with ArchiCAD?

Join Eric Bobrow as he reveals the 7 Keys to Best Practices for ArchiCAD. These simple yet ultimately powerful ideas will guide you to optimize your own working process. Easy to understand, yet profoundly effective, these Best Practices form the core of Bobrow’s teaching approach and have given students incredible results, often doubling productivity while actually improving quality.

BONUS: How far can you take your ArchiCAD template? As the creator of MasterTemplate, the popular and robust ArchiCAD add-on, Eric shares tips and tricks to quickly push your own template further towards the ideal. Turn your template into a well-organized, highly customized resource and speed your work by setting up as much as possible ahead of time, with frequently used components easily at hand.


Shawn-Hopkins-photo 2Speaker: Shawn B. Hopkins
Course Description: We simply believe that BIM is beyond a software solution. It is a paradigm shift within the building industry! A shift that will EMPOWER the architectural professions. A shift that will result in the building industry finally gaining momentum and catching up to the other industries within this INFORMATION AGE.

The result of these workflow solutions will ensure that Building and Space Designers can get back to designing and efficiently aligning information to those design decisions.

Our approach to this is simple:
2. Ensure common standards
3. Promote efficient workflows and an understand of the accuracy and time saving these have to offer.
4. Connecting supplier data to localised geometry
5. Offer localised / customised solutions that will compliment and improve the ‘out-the-box’ BIM solution offerings

ArchiCAD Beyond Architecture

Djordje Grujic, ArchiCAD MasterSpeaker: Djordje Grujic
Course Description: Being lucky to work in design and build environments all my professional life, I use ArchiCAD to design, detail, coordinate various phases, and follow through the construction process.

This includes follow up with various authorities, steel and MEP modeling and coordination, IFC coordination and exchange, and some other works that you would not think ArchiCAD is made for ... but it is. Made for everything.

How a One Man Office Does Large Complex Projects using ArchiCAD from A to Z

Andrew Passacantando, ArchiCAD MasterSpeaker: Andrew Passacantando
Course Description: As a sole practitioner, I use ArchiCAD as an essential tool for the entire lifecycle of complex residential projects, from initial hand sketches and design development through construction drawings and final renderings and take advantage of BIMX Docs to communicate with the client and contractor.

The process starts by accurately measuring an existing structure with a hand held laser, then I input the geometry into my office template within ArchiCAD to build the model.

Using complex profiles and the morph tool, I can quickly and accurately model the existing conditions and the proposed project. The advantages of complex profiles, which are particularly useful in this rather ornate, traditional vernacular style, will be a main focus in this lecture.

The finished model acts as a platform to assist the builder throughout the entire construction process. One can easily turn on and off layers to produce PDFs for specific sub-contractors and therefore eliminate excessive data printed on CD sets and creating mistakes in the field.

Modular Design and Teamwork Strategies for Multi-Unit Projects

Karoly Horvath, ArchiCAD MasterSpeaker: Karoly Horvath
Course Description: How is it possible to significantly reduce time spent on tedious repetitive design and documentation tasks using nothing but straight out of the box ArchiCAD. The techniques shown can be beneficial for large practises working on mega projects just as well as for small one man bands.

“If you can find any pattern in the design, there are ways to get the computer multiply it for you…”

How to Successfully Implement BIM, Improve Your Workflow and Better Serve Your Clients

Speaker: Erika Epstein Architect
Course Description: BIM is a process which includes how you use ArchiCAD and ancillary programs for successful data extraction and exchange.

In this session we will look at:

  • What BIM does for your firm and how to better leverage it for success
  • Embedding data in your Archicad template as part of your BIM process
  • Working with other disciplines in a myriad of formats
  • IFC import/export; why,when and how to use it

Frequently Asked Questions

We've compiled some of the most common questions about the MASTERS of Archicad SUMMIT and how it works. However, if your question is not answered below please send an email to

  • Is the Summit "LIVE" or "recorded"?

    It’s both. On February 5 and 6, 2015, the conference ran from 9 am to 6 pm PST (California time) and was broadcast live through GoToWebinar to an audience of over 300 ArchiCAD users, who watched, listened, and asked questions.

    The sessions were recorded and are now available for permanent reference through this website. Permanent access to the videos is given to everyone who registers for the Summit.

  • What if I can't stay for the entire conference?

    All sessions have been recorded and are available to registrants through this website. You’ll be able to watch them at your convenience.

  • Can I ask questions during the session? Can I get in touch with presenters afterwards?

    Attendees asked questions by typing into the chat window during the broadcast. As time allowed, we addressed questions from the audience.

    You may request contact information for the presenters and may follow up with them if you wish.

  • Is this an official Graphisoft event?

    This online conference is an independent educational event, created and produced by veteran ArchiCAD user and former reseller Eric Bobrow in conjunction with the ArchiCAD users who are featured in the program. All of us are extremely grateful to Graphisoft for the wonderful software that they develop and support. For more information or to purchase ArchiCAD, please visit the Graphisoft website.

  • How long are these presentations?

    Each presenter will give a talk and demonstration of approximately one hour in length. We allocated a few minutes at the beginning for introductions and a quick chat, and a few minutes at the end for questions from attendees.

  • Only some talks look interesting to me - is it OK if I watch only the ones that I like?

    Absolutely! Pick and choose the ones that seem most relevant to your practice. Some may become more interesting to you later – and you’ll be able to watch the recordings at that point if you wish.

    This will be a permanent resource, a “reference library” of ideas and practical inspiration that you may want to review from time to time.

  • Is anything going to be sold? I want to learn, not be given a pitch.

    All presenters focused on sharing ideas, examples and practical tools and methods. Our aim is to educate and inspire, not to sell you on anything. After all, you already have ArchiCAD!

    Some presenters may have something to offer that will take you deeper along your path towards mastery.
