Python property for Wall Orientation


For anyone interested, it is possible to use a Python script to determine the orientation of walls in Archicad. The chief problem is that most of the parameters needed (ALL) are not available to Python Scripts. A AddOn is used to supply this info to the Python script. Straight forward but a lot of steps. For a more detailed explanation see the blogs on the Developers site.

A video demonstrates the technique

This really demonstrates the need for more data access within the Python API

Script is posted on GitHub
