Meet and collaborate with your peers at this ArchiCAD User Group. You’ll learn lots of tips, tricks and features related to ArchiCAD and get a chance to get to know other users in your area. During this User Group we will examine methods to create, manage and edit Composites using the new Building Materials settings introduced in ArchiCAD 17 which will include a review of Priority Based Connections.
