Construction Animation

Steve Jepson
Advisor
An good example for what I would like to do with my ArchiCAD models.
https://constructioninstruction.com/building-resources/media/structural-insulated-panels-sips-2/

I have never had much luck with the ArchiCAD Construction Simulation add-on
Does anynone have any examples of an ArchiCAD Construction Simulations they would post ? The example from the help menu is not very good.

How old is this add-on in ArchiCAD 22? Same one that has been available for a long time? Or is is improved?

What are some programs that can do this better ? Lumion?

As far as I know, the construction simulation add-on has not been enhanced since it was first introduced years ago.

Certainly, it is not capable of generating an animation such as the one you linked to where the SIP panels are animated, rotating and moving into place as they appear. I haven't looked at it in many years - but thought it simply sequenced layer visibility, but not element visibility within a layer?

The animation portion of the video you shared is pretty nice though! 🙂

Thanks Karl,
I don't know exactly what I would do with it anywaty. But I think it would be fun.
