SPECIAL OFFER TO NEW MEMBERS - MASTERS OF ARCHICAD SUMMIT RECORDINGS FOR 90% OFF
To help fund the launch of the new ARCHICAD USER website, for a limited time (and only on this post-registration thank you page) I'm offering the recordings of both MASTERS of ARCHICAD SUMMIT conferences for 90% off.
SEE OFFER INFO and LINK on the right sidebar --> (or scroll down if you're on a mobile device).
The new ARCHICAD USER website launched in January 2018 with a monthly series of free training webinars hosted by internationally recognized ARCHICAD educator Eric Bobrow.
In the kickoff session, Leading UK Architect Timothy Ball RIBA shared his latest work on an ambitious mid-size institutional project as he proves out his innovative methodologies on a larger scale. Ball is well-known for his pioneering work with superbly detailed 3D models that push the limits of ARCHICAD while maintaining a highly efficient and profitable practice.
The webinar format combines interview and discussion with live study and training based on one of Ball's current projects, a care home modeled with exquisite interior, exterior and landscaping detail along with integrated BIM data.
Tim Ball's January presentation is on this page (free for everyone)
Additional recordings are available to supporting members through the Webinar Recordings menu
Each month's free presentation offers training content and/or case studies of leading ARCHICAD USERs.
These sessions are the centerpiece of the ARCHICAD User website, which also provides access to additional tutorials and discussion.

Eric Bobrow has worked with ArchiCAD for 32 years as a trainer and consultant. His firm Bobrow Consulting Group (BCG) was U.S. Reseller of the Year in 2000, ranked in the top 5 nationally for 10 years, and was awarded Graphisoft Platinum VAR status during a successful 20 year run, before he switched gears to focus on training and consulting in 2010.
His ArchiCAD Tutorials channel on YouTube has over 34,000 subscribers and reached a ground-breaking 4.5 million views. It is by far the most popular ArchiCAD video resource outside of Graphisoft itself.
Bobrow created and continues to develop and maintain the Archicad Best Practices 2020 Course, a comprehensive online training resource for ArchiCAD users, as well as the QuickStart Course on ArchiCAD Basics.
MasterTemplate, the Office Standard for ArchiCAD, is the most widely-used independent template system for the software, embedding best practices principles into the structure of the project files to increase efficiency, optimize productivity, and improve consistency and graphic quality.
Bobrow is the founder and producer of the MASTERS of ARCHICAD SUMMIT and TRAINING SERIES as well as the ARCHICAD USER website.
ABOUT the ARCHICAD USER Website
I relaunched the ARCHICAD USER Site in 2018 to provide a home for a worldwide virtual user group.
For 15 years I facilitated the Los Angeles ARCHICAD User Group, with an active membership of dozens of local users who attended monthly in-person meetings. We held our meetings at the local AIA chapter and at the offices of local firms.
It was an immensely valuable experience for everyone involved, and I'd like to build something like it for users around the world.
A UNIQUE SPIN ON A USER GROUP
Planned programs for the ARCHICAD USER site include monthly live webinar presentations, recorded tutorial videos, resource downloads and discussion areas.
The monthly webinars will be a combination of case study, interview, Q&A and training content woven into an entertaining and educational 60 to 90 minute format.
To bring together our virtual community, we'll also have a user directory, discussion areas and a very cool messaging system.
My plan is to facilitate personal connection, topic exploration and resource sharing in ways that are distinct from the ArchiCAD-Talk Forum and the existing LinkedIn and Facebook groups and pages.
THE JOURNEY TOWARDS ARCHICAD MASTERY
A major theme of the user group will be the Journey Towards ARCHICAD Mastery, with tutorials and downloads for users ranging from beginner through expert and beyond.
Free membership will give users access to most of the community resources, with paid levels available for people who want additional support for their ARCHICAD Journey.
The site and infrastructure of the ARCHICAD User portal will be built out over the next year in a series of stages. I invite all users who would like to be part of a connected community to join us and share the journey, as we help bring up the general level of knowledge and enjoyment of ARCHICAD.
INDEPENDENCE AND COMMUNITY
The ARCHICAD USER website is an educational resource that is independent of Graphisoft, allowing us to focus entirely on inspiring, training, educating and delighting ArchiCAD users.
Graphisoft and ARCHICAD are registered trademarks of Graphisoft SE. All of us involved in the ARCHICAD USER website are grateful for the cutting edge software that Graphisoft develops and distributes. It is what brings us together here, and continues to be the inspiring tool that liberates us to create better designs with more ease and efficiency than any other BIM product.
