How to make ArchiCAD elements permanent generated through Grasshopper.

Rajesh Patil

Does anyone can let me know how to make the ArchiCAD elements like wall, column beam slab etc generated via Grasshopper to make permanent part of the ArchiCAD so that same can be edited in ArchiCAD fluently.

The provided option of "Lock / Unlock GH elements" is of no use as it takes the edited element back to the GH definition.

As far as I remember, if you simply copy-paste or drag a copy of those generated elements in Archicad, those newly created copies will not be linked to the Grasshopper visual script.
