VR for Architecture Online CPD

Date: 29/01/2021

Time: 12:00 - 14:00

Our ‘VR for Architecture’ course has been accepted and included on the CPD Register. The aim of this course is to demonstrate how the sensation of actually being inside a building makes VR a powerful tool for communicating design intent.

This course is classed as ‘structured CPD’ as it is a formal learning activity designed to meet a specific learning outcome. Both CIAT and RIBA members participating in the course can allocate at least 2 hours of learning

Archiframe

Date: 09/02/2021

Time: 12:00 - 12:45

ArchiFrame is an innovative design tool that extends Archicad into a complete design tool for wooden structures and joinery. It provides toolsets for designing wall framing, column and beam structures, intermediate floors and roof structures. CNC support makes it the ultimate end-to-end wood modelling software.

Our Guest speaker Heidi Silvennoinen from ArchiFrame will demonstrate the creation of detailed structures from the Archicad model, creating complex shapes and joinery, producing documentation, collision detection betweent the framing and architectural elements, and utilising CNC.

Getting Started with BIMcloud SaaS

Date: 12/02/2021

Time: 12:00 - 12:45

Graphisoft BIMcloud provides a platform for Teamwork projects, allowing multiple team members to work on a model and its documentation simultaneously.

Unlike other systems, only changes in the project are synchronised with the BIMcloud, reducing the amount of data being transferred, allowing your team can work together in real-time from virtually anywhere in the world.

During this webinar we will explore how you can get started with BIMcloud SaaS (BIMcloud as a Service), add users, define roles for the design team, and share and control access to your design projects.
