BIM Components Portal features

Craig Bagley

The BIM Components Portal videos released with AC16 note many features that I find currently missing on the BIM Components Portal: a series of grey buttons for the GDL Object Viewer, the context menu commands, etc. (See videos titled “Object Pages” and “Viewing Objects”)

Where are these features? There’s a post elsewhere noting Graphisoft’s discontinued support of GDL software tools as of AC17, but does this mean they don’t work for AC16? I’ve installed the GDL Web Control Add-On for AC16, and the release notes say it works with Snow Leopard, and Safari 5.x. Can anyone shed any light on this?

As far as I remember the site was using GDL Web Control to display the objects when it first came out for AC 16. However later it was changed to be based on WebGL which it is still using.
This has nothing to do with AC 16 or 17, it is about how the web site works.

I guess the clips you are referring to were never updated to reflect this change.
