Where can I download ARCHICAD'S tools icons ??

Hi everyone,

I know that the question may not for this forum, but I will use it for the object's UI I´m going to deliver.

I need to download ArchiCAD's standard tool icons, and no, I´m not talking about those used in ArchiCAD object library, I´m talking about these:


Can you tell me where I can download them ?
A good friend of mine have once told me that I´m so brute that I´m capable of creating a GDL script capable of creating GDLs.

Hi,

If you are a registered ARCHICAD API Developer (registration is free at http://archicadapi.graphisoft.com), then you can download the API Development Kit which contains the DG_Text example Add-On. You can find each element type icons in SVG format (small and large icons also) inside DG_Test/RFIX/Images folder.

These would be embedded in the Archicad program itself.
I am guessing the best you will get it to do a screen capture.

Hi Barry,

That was a possibility I had, but I prefer he real stuff since I will have to re-scale to be bigger in size, and that tends to reduce graphical quality.

By the way, I have found this on Behance

I think that was put on the web by the graphics designer who GRAPHISOFT contracted when the new ARCHICAD UI was designed. It is his reference work.

As Barry said, all icons are embedded in the program itself. Extracting them is a question for the Developer forum, vs this Library forum. The actual resources are there, but accessible only by those who know something about the developer tools. The resolutions usable for a GDL object's UI are quite different from the scaleable icons for an app.

I´m aware that programming those icons in ArchiCAD is something totally different (on the programming level) from those used by GDL, but graphical designers usually use Vector Graphics Design tools (for example: Adobe Illustrators & similar) to provide the graphic for the program.

I will ask the developer forum for those files
