In the sense that should the designer change the floor level they would need to visit the section to move their 2D object. I'm not an advocate of modelling everything (ie. lintels, drainage, etc as I do them as 2D lines in my sections) but items like floors I think should be modelled properly. However, I did like the way that the 2D object in the video could have its individual layers stretched to overlap the wall.
What a bogus video - completely misleading about ArchiCAD usage.
The presenter had the Info Box turned off, so we could not observe what was actually being done at any point. All of the objects (and Favorites), of course, are not standard things. They appear to be simply 2D stamps, which makes it offensive that the narrator calls this "modeling" ... All of that detail CAN be done with actual modeling using complex profiles in which case it will be present in ALL section cuts, as it should be.
IMHO such a video hurts ArchiCAD sales more than it helps, as anyone who learns what is really happening will feel cheated.

What a bogus video - completely misleading about ArchiCAD usage.I agree that the video is misleading and that the benefits of BIM are negated in this method. I do however see some powerful use of ArchiCAD here, even if it is 2D. I have liked Apple Core's videos in the past and if they would add an explanation at the beginning of what is going on in this video, then I would have no problem with it. But I could see someone thinking that this is all out of the box and that it is all being modeled in 3D and that would lead to some disappointment down the road.

It appears that you can download the custom 2D library parts at
