Hi All - just checking in for other people's wisdom and experience here:
I have a building that requires a number of rotated grids.
In the 3d window, I can pick a rotated grid and use the construction planes to draw in a number of different orientations. All good.
I can setup a rotated grid, and draw walls, slabs, stairs, etc all orientated to the new grid.
When I choose the Morph Tool, the grid snaps back to the original orthogonal grid. If I orientate a new grid with the Morph Tool active, it simply rotates back to the original ortho grid as soon as I use the Morph Tool.
All the other tools work on the rotated grid as expected. Just Morph tool doesn't.
Am I over looking something? Is this a bug? Or is it expected behaviour? I really hope it's not expected behaviour because it's seriously making me frustrated.
I'm using AC24 v5000. I'm downloading v6000 now, but I don't see anything about Morph or Construction Grids in the change log. I get the same behaviour in AC25. Only tested on Windows at the moment, but can test on Mac later.
Thank you very much for the report and I am very sorry about the experience!
I could reproduce this issue from Archicad 18 till the current version. Unfortunately, I don't have any explanation for it. Let me ask for some help from our colleagues for further investigation. As soon as we know more, I will let you know!
Hi Minh, just following up here to see if there’s any response from the team on this one. When I’ve looked back at some of our team’s modelling issues this looks like a contributing factor to some difficulties/frustrations with complex modelling (detailed steel canopies/etc). We implemented a Rhino connection workflow to solve those, but that brings its own challenges.
I appreciate you following up on the original question!
