Hi, anyone here knows what's the best way to export an archicad model to ecotect? I know I can export it to a .3ds file, but I was wondering if there was a plugin or something that would allow me to export in a more "native" way so to speak... or if someone knows what the best settings for importing in .3ds are I'd be very thankful.

I installed the add-on on archicad 18 and exported the model to gbXML using interior and exterior zones, but when I open the file on ecotect it seems like it only recognizes the interior zone, because the windows and doors are like floating outside (seems like they are on what should be the exterior face of the walls, but only the interior is recognised) Do you know how to solve this?
