Transformation on ArchiCAD project


Hi All,
I have a requirement from my client to convert the archiCAD PLN extension files to JSON, without losing the properties.
Can you guys suggest a way?
Thanks in advance
Roni Vincent.

How does that even make sense?  The PLN file, and the data it contains, are not something that would map into a JSON framework in any way that would be usable by anyone even if a special add-on were created to do that.  It is possible to export some per-element data from Archicad, but not in JSON format.  Perhaps you could explain what your client hopes to actually receive?  I wonder if even they know what they are asking.
