Automate "RFA & RVT Geometry Exchange" addon commands in ArchiCAD 26

Hello,

I am trying to automate converting RFA to a GDL object and exporting it to .gsm format. I found one add-on by Bim6X named - "RFA & RVT Geometry Exchange" which seems relevant.

I was looking for some ArchiCAD APIs(Python, C++, C#, etc.) to automate the required workflow but did not find any resources.

Also observed that ArchiCAD has officially stopped support for C++/C# automation API's since version 25.

Any help will be really appreciated!

 

Note - I am using Archicad 26 & Windows 10

Probably long overdue, but I am trying to achive the same thing, could you maybe share some insight if you were able to implement that? 
As the last resort I am trying to use Windows UI Automation tools, to simulate user imput, but this is neither a pretty or proper solution.

Looking for something similar.

Is there any option  in Add-On API to invoke the RFA As GDL menu as shown in the screenshot?  @Akos or @BerndSchwarzenbacher or @Viktor Kovacs 

 

Thank you!

Hi Kency,

 

I think it's not possible unfortunately.


Best,

Bernd
