This 110 minute ArchiCAD training video (recorded during a live webinar February 27, 2014) provides a thorough explanation and demonstration of the new features and changes introduced in MasterTemplate 17. The template was rebuilt this year from the standard Graphisoft templates (starting from the USA version or INT version of ArchiCAD). It closely resembles previous versions, while incorporating the new system of Building Materials and many other enhancements and tweaks.


Here is a brief list of the improvements and additions in AMT 17.

  • MasterTemplate rebuilt “from the ground up”
  • Integration of Building Materials and Intersection Priorities
  • Master Script Components – Featuring Total Zone
  • Reworking of all Composites and Complex Profiles to use standard Building Materials
  • Interactive Legends and Favorites revised and extended to use ArchiCAD 17 Library and Building Materials
  • Renovation Filters revised, optimized renovation workflow
  • Updated Sample Project file
  • Structural Drawings - Layout Subset, Structural Worksheet with Notes and Legend
  • Enhanced support for Full Basements and Sublevels
  • Dedicated Layer Combinations and Views for BIMx, EcoDesigner / HVAC, and Structural / BIM Models
  • New Door and Window Schedules
  • New Electrical Plan view set
  • Preliminary conceptual design with a "foamcore model" appearance

We have licensed Total Zone and several other components from the highly regarded GDL developer Master Script to provide even better and faster workflow and graphic output. These tools, with a combined retail value of 66 Euro (about $88 USD), are now bundled with each license of AMT 17.

Upgrades from earlier versions of MasterTemplate are available for $125:
