Hotspot Elevation

Hello all,

Does anyone know how you can modify the elevation of a Hotspot?

Plugins such as ArchiTerra convert imported DXF files into point levels represented in ArchiCAD as Hotspots. These are then selected using a Fill as a boundary to create a Mesh. This would imply that the Hotspots contain elevations data?

The woes of elevating a 2D contour plan with next to no level references...

If you mean the hotspots created by the Hotspot tool, those are 2D-only and contain no 3D information.

There was another thread a good 2 years ago, where people wanted to input 3D points from Archicad into Grasshopper.
I wrote a simple GDL script which I named "3D Point". You can find it here:

The Hotspots are created by the plugin. Once created, you can interact with them the same as any other Hotspot you may have placed with the Hotspot Tool. Probably a question for the plugin devs in regards to how they translate the imported .dxf
