Hyperlink to Layout

Anonymous
Not applicable
Any easy solution of finding the Layout GUIDs so I can make hyperlinks directly to 2D document?
12 REPLIES 12

Hello ThorIII,

Did you check this page : https://helpcenter.graphisoft.com/knowledgebase/54496/
We know we are able to create a link with an element into a 3D view but I do not think you can do it with a Layout like BimX do natively. Perhaps by BIMX API ?

Hi, yes I know we can link into 3D, but in the BIMx API document it is shown how to link to 2D documemts aswell. And the provided example does link directly to plan view of the graphisoft demo hyperlik-modell. But to do this in my model I will need the unique id ot the document i'm linking to.

I have found a way to find the GUIDs.
Open the *.bimx file in a text editor (notepad works), search for "<Item Id=" the GUIDs and Archicad layout name and ID can be found within the .bimx file as a xml formated text. Below is cut out from the Graphisoft Demo Hyper-model.bimx file. I made a script in autohotkey that exctracts the GUIDs and Layout names and parsing them to excel. Marked in red is the GUID for layout A-01.1 Siteplan. With this I can build a hyperlink that Opens the correct file and jumps directly to the layout.

How did You manage to open .bimx as xml formated file?. I opened it and its binary.

Just do a search for <Item Id= . The xml formated text are hidden in there. Its hard to spot just by scrolling.

Hello greg_lupo,

Everything is not readable but notepad or textedit are tools capable of reading the BimX file

Nice. I worked it out. Do you think it would be useful to create Grasshopper Node (or simlple commandline tool ) that creates csv/xls file from bimx with two columns: Name of Layout and Hyperlink to this Layout?
What Do You think?
