Front Porch Example

JaredBanks
Advisor

Building this front porch using the Railing Tool, segmented Columns, and one really complicated segmented Beam is a great way to demonstrate the power of Archicad and learn more about tools you should be using everyday. Hope you enjoy the video:

@JaredBanks Good demo! The beam / column tool is amazingly flexible. Now if we could just get free rotation in 3D without the 89 degree limit.

Apple iMac macOS Monterey / AC26UKI (most recent builds)

Thanks. Glad you liked it.

 

Yes full rotation would be so nice. The 90 degree limit is silly. It'd be great if Archicad would ask, when we get to 90 degrees, "it looks like you want this beam to be a column; would you like me to change its element type?"

 

Beams and Columns should be one tool.

Windows and Doors should be one tool.

Roofs and Slabs should be one tool.

Actually. Beams should be roofs and slabs as well and even walls and shells. Or is it the other way around? GS should focus less on what an geometry is and more on how they are created - realising the full potential of already implemented functionalities. I mean - a polygonal opening in a slanted plane (roof) and a polygonal shaped vertical plane (wall)! But of course it doesn't make sense to put a window in a beam - so good that we can't do that...

Agreed. It'd be nice if type was just a matter of classification and not tool.

 

I'm still waiting for openings in roofs. That is so needed. Create opening from selection to cut holes in roofs!!!! Yes please.
