Load-bearing masonry solution

Electric Flute
Beginner
Is there any parametric object or add-on for ArchiCAD that makes load-bearing masonry? It is great to estimate quantities. There are many for Revit, but I didn't find anything for ArchiCAD so far.
Thanks,

That line happens when you have two of the same object occupying the same space. If I am correct then moving one of the CWs should fix it.

On the other point you don't need 2 CWs to have different rows. The Contrabim video shows how to do it.
No, it has nothing to do with object occupying the same space. It`s a problem of the Floor Plan Cut Plane cutting an empty space. If I change the high of the Cut Plane, the other CW is affected. It seems ArchiCAD`s CW isn`t able to be shown as projected top view.

I know I don`t need 2 CWs, but I want it. Please read my last post about the reasons. In fact, I need 2 CWs If need something for real production and quantities, not just a presentation.

Looks overcomplicated for me. In general I do not think it is good idea to use curtain wall for making concrete blocks.

for me this was a proof of concept solution, and a tutorial on the use of the pattern editor, or one that might apply to a very specific, small, piece of work.
