Learning Objective

The goal of this crash course is to show you how you can increase your efficiency in ARCHICAD using Parametric complex profiles. You will understand the basic concept of Parametric Complex Profiles, learn about how to create and organize Offset Modifiers. You will also see how you can query metadata from these special elements with Interactive Schedules or through Graphical Overrides to visualize Offset Modifiers.

Target Audience

The target audience of this training are all ARCHICAD users from beginners to advanced users to even BIM Managers. The contents of this course is relevant for anyone who is working with ARCHICAD since it is covering topics from modeling through documentation to metadata handling. 

Table of Contents

Throughout this course we will touch the following topics:

  • Concept of Parametric Complex Profiles
  • Creating Offset Modifiers
  • Scheduling, Favorites, Graphical Override
  • Various Examples

Expected Time Commitment

You can complete the course with the connected exercises and quizzes in about 1,5-2 hours

Software Requirements

To be able to follow the exercises of this course you will need an ARCHICAD 23 license (Commercial, Education, Pilot or Trial). However if you do not have an ARCHICAD 23 license you are free to follow the training videos.
