About the Author

Since Graduating with a BSc in Computer Aided Engineering, Ken Good has spent all of his working life in the building industry, mostly using, selling, supporting or training architectural CAD to design professionals.

In the mid-1990’s Ken was introduced to ArchiCAD version 4.55 and realised the enormous potential benefit to the building industry based on his experience with 3D engineering applications. Since then, Ken has been involved with the development of twelve major ArchiCAD upgrades as well as introducing training courseware.

This courseware was endorsed by Graphisoft as their recommended material for implementing ArchiCAD BIM to new user sites and to advanced users requiring essential knowledge maintenance.
