ArchiCAD Interactive Training Guides

Deutsch 中文 (简体) 日本語

Welcome to ArchiCAD's Interactive Training Program. This Program is composed of a series of easy to use and fun Interactive Training Guides (ITG) that help users learn by doing. These interactive training modules are intended to expand your ArchiCAD knowledge in broad range of topics. To get the best interactive results, we recommend you install ArchiCAD and complete the exercises with the help of the narrated movie clips.

Attention to users of ArchiCAD 15 and newer:
Please note that a new, advanced level of video communication has been introduced in ArchiCAD. The ArchiCAD YouTube Channel is the new, default video player that contains the ITG clips as well as other ones. However, the ITG clips won’t be automatically displayed when you open an ITG plan file, so you have to choose them manually from the ArchiCAD YouTube Channel. You can launch the ArchiCAD YouTube Channel from the ArchiCAD Help menu.

Please note, that these Training files cannot be opened with ArchiCAD Star(t) Edition. If you are interested in downloading Training Materials for ArchiCAD Star(t) Edition, please visit the ArchiCAD Star(t) Edition Tutorial page.

The following interactive ArchiCAD training modules are available:

  1. ArchiCAD Collaboration Part 1 (ArchiCAD Teamwork) - Learn ArchiCAD's Teamwork 2.0 concept.
  2. ArchiCAD Collaboration Part 2 (Collaboration Techniques) - Learn further Collaboration techniques.
