How to show floor plans with sketch type lines?

Anonymous
Not applicable
Hi all - I was wondering if there is a way to show a floor plan with the walls and windows set to look more sketch like. I love the program so far but I'm struggling with a way to present initial floor plan concepts that don't look too finished/final. I would like to show the walls (interior and exterior) and the doors and windows in a more soft/sketch like way. I figured out how to do it with regular lines and shapes by just changing the line type but I can't figure out how to do it with the walls, windows and doors. Thanks for any help, tips, advice - much appreciated!

I did this using Graphic Overrides for the wall, windows and doors in AC 21, should be the same in AC20.

See attached screen shot. Then create a GO Combination that contains this rule.

Hello,
I`m new to the Archicad Community and wonder:
How do you make the linetype "sketch"?
(I know how to make a custom linetype, but not how to make one resemble the sketch shown in this tread....)
Thanks in advance.

Anders M:

First try opening a template file and see if a sketch line type is there, it can be moved to your project file with the Attribute Manager. If not, then just use the Polyline Tool to create your own.

You should add a Signature to your Profile (click the Profile button near the top of this page) with your ArchiCAD version and operating system (see mine for an example) for more accurate help in this forum.

Just to clarify a little.
Create a polyline you want for the sketch line in plan.
Select and copy it and then create a 'Symbolic' line - pasting that polyline in for the pattern.
