During our work we have to collaborate with the mechanical, electrical or structural engineers, submit plans to the municipality or provide data for the contractor. To speed up this data exchange, we use ArchiCAD’s Publisher. The Publisher is basically a batch file output and printing hub. We can set up contacts and the rules for which contacts will receive which kind of data. Data can be published in several ways from the Publisher. We can print or plot documents as well as save files to our hard disk or to a computer we are connected to. We can also upload BIMx Hyper-Models to the Internet. Here you can discover how to define which documents to publish. You can also learn that if the contractor uses a conventional CAD software, how to provide the design documentation in DXF file format and if the partners don’t use CAD, how to send PDF files they can view.
