How this tools came about:
SYLLA International is a Florida-based architecture firm that switched to Archicad in early 2014 after using another BIM/CAD program for 18 years. For our second project in Archicad, a client in Florida asked us to design a 5,000 s.f. house using shipping containers. So we reached out to the Archicad community for help with shipping container BIM objects with intelligence that we can modify to add doors and windows.
That is when the BimBakery™ firm in Durban, South Africa, reached out to us to help. Their consulting services helped solve all our BIM problems related to the shipping containers, and I would recommend them to anyone who needs BIM consulting services, including architects and manufacturers especially. They have extensive knowledge in Archicad and are diligent, patient and committed to clients and what they do. So BimBakery.c0 TEAM, thank you for a job well done and for helping us.
