QR-code

I was wondering if there was any QR-code library object available anywhere in Archicad? Or any way of creating QR-codes directly in Archicad.

Or how do you guys use them? Do you just create a QR-code on some online generator and paste it as an image/placed drawing?

Hello mbl,

I do not understand what you want to do with a QR code into Archicad but I invite you to create it by this kind of link : https://www.unitag.io/fr/qrcode

Them you are able to input your qrcode like a surface into your Archicad model.

Can you explain what's exactly your aim ?

Hi Christophe,

Thank you, I know it's possible to use some sort of QR-code generator from the internet, but I was wondering if there was any possibility to generate them directly in Archicad. And a library object would sound most logical to me.

I know QR-codes are quite complex, but I was hoping some gdl-guru or someone in Graphisoft had too much time on his/hers hands and already made one...

Having it generated directly in Archicad would eliminate an extra step with an external image file and would be much easier to edit if needed.

I was thinking of starting using QR-codes on our printed drawings for URL-links, but I am trying to figure out an easy and "dumb proof" workflow.

To link paper to pdf file into a cloud storage, I guess... A great idea but I do not think it a GS project !

Not via GDL that I know of, but it might be possible to do with an add-on that can link to an external generator.
I don't know for sure as I have never gotten into the add-on (developer) side of things.

I use QR-codes for our various company websites and have them saved a JPG images in our loaded library.
I can then "CALL" these images into our drawing title block object based on the company we are drawing for.
