Here is the course outline:

1. What's new in Archicad?

We, Graphisoft, believe in the continuous innovation of our products and services. Therefore, we perfect our tools and workflows in each Archicad version to empower teams to create great architecture.

2. Design

Design freedom to create great architecture. Localize selected elements when switching between 2D and 3D views without re-selecting the elements. Get precise documentation sets and accurate quantities estimations with the enhanced Opening Tool. Create custom stairs that comply with specific local standards. Bring your interior designs to life thanks to our expanding library of 3D Objects that follow the latest residential and commercial design trends.

3. Document & Visualize

Documentation that follows your design & Visual presentation of great design. Get more accurate building materials schedules and cost estimations thanks to new ‘gross’ and ‘conditional’ area and volume properties. Graphic Overrides are more flexible than ever, thanks to new options to choose custom RGB colors for Surface and Fill Background Pen overrides. Display the same Textures on Sections, Elevations, and Interior Elevations as seen in the 3D window. Enjoy the benefits of the newly integrated GPU based rendering engine: Redshift.

4. Collaborate

Collaboration between Architects and Structural Engineers can now happen without Loads' data loss. Architecture starts with collaboration. Eliminate collaboration inconsistencies with the new Native Survey Point (NSP). Set one survey point for your project — then get ready to focus on your design. Import RFA as a native Archicad Object and create MEP equipment from Revit Family Files thanks to the built-in Revit file format exchange. Automated code- and constructibility checking using Archicad-Solibri Connection add-on.

5. Conclusion
