Design Options Videos

Design Options in Archicad 27 are awesome. They are arguably the most important addition to Archicad since Building Materials were introduced back in 2013 with the release of Archicad 17. Yes. Even more important than segmented Beams and Columns. Over the next couple of weeks I'll be releasing four videos that share how I'm currently using Design Options. In the first video, I talk about the basics. In each subsequent video, I'll share more interesting ways I'm using Design Options.

 

In part 1 of the series I cover the basics of Design Options in Archicad 27.

In part 2 of this series I look at Design Options for actual design options, and how Design Options can improve the organization of a template.

In part 3 of my video series I discuss Design Options for site modeling, surrounding context, and a few other things.

In part 4 of my video series I look at combing Design Options with hotlinked Modules.

Glad you like the videos and that's a good idea for a follow up video/blog post/discussion. At the moment I don't have any big items that I'd like to see added. Not that there aren't additional things that would be good, I just haven't had time to think about them thoroughly.

Design Options in conjunction with Modules open up all sorts of interesting possibilities in Archicad. I'm not an expert in the use of Modules and Hotlinks, so please view my fourth and final (for now) video on Design Options in Archicad as more inspiration than ideal protocol. https://shoegnome.com/2024/03/04/design-options-in-archicad-27-part-4/
