Hello guys! It is my first post in this precious forum. I am starting to use Archicad after many years of Revit. And I'm a bit panicked 🙂 For example, using the Morph tool, I found that the program, drawing a cylinder, creates a surface divided 36 times, therefore polygonal! I saw that if I have to fillet a corner of a solid, you can choose the number of segmentations, that's a good thing, but the cylinder remains segmented ... Tell me it's not true, tell me it's just my mistake, it's not possible that in 2021 such expensive software still has this problem. Thanks!
Hi Qualifa and thanks for the welcome 🙂 OK, your suggestion works perfectly for objects made through the Morph tool. But this "segmentation" unfortunately also exists in architectural objects, cylindrical columns or curved geometry floors ... If I make a column, inserting the parametric column present in the Archicad library, its generating circle has 36 sides, and not there is no way to increase them. A friend suggested to me a way, but not completely decisive: enter the settings of the "magic wand" and enter a much higher value of the segmentation of the curves. Consequently, if you make a circular slab for example, just make it using the magic wand tool, and its edges will be perfect. If you do it normally, its edges will be polygonal. What a pity 😞
Approximation, you can't do without it. Yes, it makes it difficult to visualise small architectural forms, but with smoothing (I hope you removed it for the example) and visualising the exterior at a certain distance, this aspect will not be noticeable.
I was in Detailed shading mode! No difference, because is the object "construction", not the shading that makes difference... If you see the same object in Wireframe, you will see the "grid" of 36 segments of my cilynder column 😞
