I want to learn how to create new library parts. I thought that I would start by creating a few beds based on the "Bed Double 01" that exist in the ArchiCAD 8 library. I want to create a king and queen sized beds for my current project.
The problem that I am having is find a simple straight "how to" set of instructions for creating a library part. I looked in the ArchiCAD 8 help menu but couldn't find a start to finish set of instructions on creating a library part from an existing library part.
Could somebody please point me toward some instructions or write them here?
1. Open the Part. ("File/GDL Objects/Open Object..." from the pull-down menu)
2. While in the Object Editor window, select "File/Save As..." from the pull-down menu and name it (with a unique name).
3. Edit at will.
That was just what I was looking for. Next I want to learn to create library parts from scratch or from other elements. I would like to learn how to make a door. Is there a set of instructions for something like creating a door?
