27.02.2023 – BIMCloud and Teamwork in ArchiCAD

In this lecture we discussed about BIMCloud and how Teamwork and online collaboration in Archicad works. 
We also launched Archicad and show you how each Block file is arranged.

Next week we are going to start working on your ArchiCAD Block Files. For this reason, it is crucial to be part of a team, to have selected your Block and to register to BIMCloud until TOMORROW.

If you have difficulties with the group arrangements, please coordinate with the Ateliers’ Supervisors. For questions regarding registration, follow the instructions of the “00_Registration” Workflow or contact us on Discord.

  1. To be ready for the class, please, have your Archicad Block File open and ready to use. Also have with you the “ 01_ModelCheck Workflow”, that you can find attached. This is the workflow that we are going to work on during the class. 
  2. The videos of all the pdf workflows we are sending you every week can be found here: https://www.3djony.com/courses/w-1f-modeling-a-context-for-architecture-design 
  3. When you select a group in MiroBoard https://miro.com/app/board/uXjVPu-mgG8=/, you are automatically assigned to a 3D-printer. Each 3D-printer is assigned to 2 groups.

Please, communicate with the team-members that have the same printer, to fill-in the 3D printing contract (Verantwortungserklärung) together and bring it to the  HYTAC HelpDesk during Opening Hours: https://hytac.arch.ethz.ch/helpdesk/
