Hi everyone!


To celebrate our 40th anniversary, our newest Community Challenge is My Graphi Story! Share the story of your very first creation with a Graphisoft tool. Perhaps it was your first project or GDL object, the first time you used BIMx for a presentation, or the time you started collaborating with peers on your newly created Teamwork project. 


How was your experience? What were the difficulties and surprises you encountered? Share screenshots, GIFs, YouTube videos, and project files to spice up the tale.

The Graphisoft Team is eager to read your stories and recap these pearls from the past!
