Event Details

Join Users in Your Area, Meet Your New ARCHICAD Reseller & Check out ARCHICAD 21!

archicad torontoAt this special BIM & Beer User Group Social, you’ll get to meet GRAPHISOFT’s new reseller for Alberta, Saskatchewan, and British Columbia, Joe Magas of Fusiontek! If you haven’t had a chance to really check out ARCHICAD 21 yet, then this is the perfect opportunity for that as well! And, as always, you’ll get to meet other ARCHICAD enthusiasts, exchange ideas, ask questions, and share accomplishments. 

GRAPHISOFT’s Monte Chapin will zoom in on a few ARCHICAD 21 new features, including:

  • Stair Tool: ARCHICAD 21’s Stair Tool evaluates thousands of options and offers the most optimal stair design choices within the context of the specific building you’re working on.
  • Railing Tool: The Railing Tool can be used to create complex, associative railings for Stairs, Slabs, Walls, Roofs or Meshes.
  • Collision Detection: Collision Detection allows two groups of elements to be compared through user-defined criteria sets.
  • Pro Visualization: Based on MAXON’s Cinema 4D v18 rendering engine, ARCHICAD 21 offers high quality, photo-realistic rendering within the BIM context.
  • And so much more!


Refreshments will be served!

About your presenter: Monte Chapin, GRAPHISOFT Business Process Leader

Monte ChapinMonte J. Chapin has over thirty years of professional design experience in the architecture and construction industry, specializing in high-end residential, multifamily, mixed-use and commercial/retail projects. He integrated GRAPHISOFT ARCHICAD into professional practice in 1991. Nearly 20 years later, he is continually expanding the potential of BIM - Building Information Modeling - using GRAPHISOFT's renowned BIM solution, ARCHICAD.

Currently, as Business Process Leader at GRAPHISOFT North America, he is engaging new processes of collaborating, coordinating and communicating information and data contained in the 3D geometry of models through interoperability initiatives and exchanges of BIM data using IFC (Industry Foundation Classes).

Since 2001, he has been mentoring and teaching ARCHICAD and BIM processes - providing architects, designers, engineers and builders with the knowledge and solutions necessary to leverage the new paradigm of BIM technology. Monte joined GRAPHISOFT North America in 2008 to advance the concepts of innovative new processes and workflow using ARCHICAD for design, construction, and operations, modeling, simulating and analyzing building performance as integrated systems thinking. He is fostering and promoting a shared vision of new mental models and team learning as AEC companies revise business strategies to integrate BIM technologies and processes into their organizations.

Monte currently sits on the Board of Directors of the buildingSMART alliance. He previously served on the Design Work Group and Project Committee for the NBIMS-US Version 2 and is now serving on the Product Development, Implementation and Market Educations Subcommittees for the NBIMS-US Version 3. Monte is a member of the OmniClass Technology Sponsor Group and OmniClass Development Committee. Additionally, Monte is a participant on the Technical Subcommittee for the AGC BIMForum.
