archicad 12 to 3ds missing faces

Not applicable
I'm having a problem when I export the archicad model to 3ds... the top cornice faces are missing... only the joint appear in 3dstudio...
i tried to fix it by using a 2 sided material... but doesn't work...
does anyone have a solution for this??

hi fabricfo,

i actually have the same problem. im not so sure if there is a solution to this ATM. my work around is to export it to another format whereby 3dsmax also recognize it.

For my case, when i export by materials, 1 set of materials seem to go missing. I don't find any logical explanation since when i export the model to c4d, it seems to be working but problem is, i export the items by object and not by materials hence i have to replace the materials 1 by 1.

Any of the vets can look into this?

I'm guessing, but are these made with custom profiles?
You could try exporting them by IFC, which can be a bit iffy as well with custom profiles, but usually a little playing with the direction you drew the wall or beam with the custom profile solves the problem.
