Throughout these lessons, we will explore the depths of ARCHICAD by learning how to create custom templates to fit your office standards, esthetic, and personal choices. We will discuss how to set up layers and layer combinations, how to adjust pen colors and weights, and much more. We will also talk about how to create favorites and organize our templates so you can use them again and again. By the end of this tutorial you will have a fundamental working knowledge of how to design your very own templates in ARCHICAD. Software required: ARCHICAD 18.

Introduction and Project Overview
Hi everyone. My name is Willard Williams. I am a registered architect, and currently I work at Rutledge Maul Architects. My latest projects include a 175-unit multi-family residential complex and residential and multi-family projects in and around the Bay Area. This course, we're going to create a customized template for ARCHICAD with your standards and preferences to make starting new projects more consistent and more efficient. The major topics that we're going to be discussing in this course will include how to create custom layers and layer combinations, how to save objects with your own pre-defined settings so that you can be more efficient and consistent, and then we're also going to be talking about Pen Sets, composites, complex profiles, and a host of other things. Finally, creating a template file. By the end of this training, you'll be able to start a new project with your settings and preferences already predefined in an ARCHICAD template. I'm excited to work with Digital-Tutors and share these techniques and tips with you. So, let's get started with this first lesson.
