It is possible to do in 3d in archicad?

I want do the stone frames that round the door and the windows (blue marked)

The red circle suggest other question that I think that archicad don't do it in a easy way. Is it possible to do in 3d?

Looking at the photo, it will take 3 separate objects using the Profiler tool, but yes, it can be done.

Definitely possible, for example:

This was done years ago (AC10) as an exercise.
I barely understood the power of AC and should
have used profiles far more extensively.

This was made with a few profiles and slabified objects
that were cut rotated and recut and rotated again
using the marquee tool in 3d.
Look at the AC help for making library parts, using the marquee
and the profiler. All was done in AC. Zero GDL.

On the left is the simple profiled volute. Finished object on right.

Try running through the object making tutorial. I found it very helpful, especially when creating special windows and doors. Find it at:

Take a look at OBJECTiVE. Watch the first example clip for an example of modelling stone detailing on a building facade (an example elevation is attached). OBJECTiVE provides tools and objects that allow you to model and edit the building model in an easy and intuitive way, like the rest of ArchiCAD.

Off topic... but Ralph... I assume the example elevation has some 2D line work?.. the bold outlines?
OBJECTIVE is now on my "WANT" list for Archicad addons.

Yes, I add the bold line-work manually. It's very quick and easy to do, but enormously effective for adding 'depth' to the drawing.

For reference, the attached image shows the same elevation with all 2D elements removed.
