hey everyone! how do i make this light in archicad?? is there potential to reshape/stretch an existing lamp for example the below one, to this shape? can I make it from a morph? or how do I get it? could I revolve around a shape? not very sure :))

Draw a section of half of the short side, then use the Shell Tool to extrude your shape.

Actually, it would be better to do a Complex Profile and trace the perimeter.

You would then duplicate it for the number of elements in your light, set and different materials, then save it as an object.
