Wall and projection

How do I get the value of wall length that project on the North Elevation, or other direction?

Do you have any idea?

I am afraid it is not possible with the basic ArchiCAD tools.

The window and door objects can read the wall direction angle, but that angle
depends on the drawing direction; clockwise and anti-clockwise drawn walls are heading to opposite directions so it is just guessing if the direction is north or south.

You could either approximate this from the geometry expressed in the API_WallType structure, or more accurately from the 3D geometry accessed through the ModelAccess API.
