Quantities access in Python Scripts


Python scripts have limited access to Element quantities, at present. However, through the use of a AddOn, any of the Examples in the Archicad Development API can also be made available to Python Scripts.

I demo this by adding the three quantity functions developed in the Element_Test example under the Snippets Tab.

The APX is posted on the GitHub site listed in  the video description.


Quantity access 


The new Python functions are identical to those in Element_Test. If you are interested or in need of any other functions as demoed in the C++ APi, comment below and Ill see if it is feasible.  With this route, I believe Graphisoft could add quite a bit of the capability of the Examples to Python Scripts and, at least, parallel that of the examples. IF NOT, we can do much ourselves. I would like to see some confirmation -- How about you?
