Kitchen - Cutting cabinet

POLAR BEAR
Contributor

Hello All,

 

Beginner question with attached images:

- I am detailing a kitchen and want to include above and blow kitchen counter plans.  When i set the cutting plane lower than the counter height, i still don't see the cabinet sides...  What am i doing wrong?

 

Thanks a lot!

Kind Regards

Martin

@POLAR BEAR Archicad's 3D objects typically only ever show a top down projection on a floor plan, they don't respond to cutting planes. Your best alternative is to create a 3D Document with cut planes at the required height, this usually works depending on your expectations from the 3D model and what has been included by the developers.

Hello POLAR BEAR,

 

You are able to modify the gsm object to modify it in 2D view.

If you are interested in this process, I am at your disposal to help you step by step.

We can certainly discuss, and in french if you feel more comfortable.  I am in Canada.

Do you want to modify your object ?

Ultimately, i want to see the cabinet sides.  If it involves modifying the object, then yes..

 

* I will be on and off on this exchange as i'm handling other running projects.  Thanks for your kind help...

Can you share you object or tell me which one from AC library do you use ?

Hello,

 

The objects are kitchen cabinets such as:

 

Cabinet Base MultiDrawer 24

 

Thanks a lot!

After responding privately and by videoconference to POLAR BEAR, here is the principle of easy 2D personalization of an object.
1 -  Select and open object
2 - Create a boolean variable (ex:"varr")

3 - Into "2D Symbol" draw your 2D personalization of the object on the layer "1"

4 - Into 2D script write these lines of code :

<quote>
IF varr THEN       !If the condition "varr" is validated then ...
FRAGMENT2 1,3      !Call of the 2D drawing found on layer "1" in the "2D Symbol" tab
ELSE               !If the condition "varr" is NOT validated then ...
! Here keep the native 2D script of the object
ENDIF              !End of IF command
</quote>

5 - If you want or need to customize the object personalization interface in order to integrate this new variable, just add in the interface script :

 

<quote>
UI_OUTFIELD "Here my own 2D", 0, 0, 100.    ! X,Y,text field width
UI_INFIELD "varr", 0, 15	          	    ! X,Y
</quote>

 

I really am not an expert on Archicad objects or even a GDL follower.

Nevertheless I like to share.
