Using Graphic Overrides to Locate Independent Labels

Within ARCHICAD associative labels are a powerful way to extract data from an element and follow an element when moved. Conversely, the content of independent labels is manually entered and does not reflect changes within the model. In order to diffe...

Using Graphic Overrides to Locate Static Dimensions

During the course of a project dimensions that were once associative can be turned static. Whether this is intentional or accidental, it is important to keep track of values that no longer reflect changes in the model. Follow the steps below to use G...

About Fills

Fills are geometric 2D hatching patterns that help you distinguish and decorate the elements of your project. They can also be used to decorate surfaces in the 3D window and the 3D Documents. ARCHICAD comes with a full set of Fills that are available...

Exporting to a 3D Printer using an STL file

One of the advantages to modeling in 3D is that the project file can be easily exported to a 3D printer using the STL (StereoLithography) file format. Follow the steps below to export the model as an STL. Readying the Model for Export 1. Open the mod...

How to change the dimensioning units by view

Is it possible to set two dimensioning methods in ARCHICAD in one project? - asked on Facebook This question can be interpreted many ways, let's summarise what we know about dimensioning, what we can and can't do. Setting up the units in the project ...

Expression-defined property labels

What is an expression? An expression is a mathematical phrase which combines numbers, variables and operators to show the value of something. Being introduced in AC22, expression-based properties can come in hand when we want to create custom propert...

How to place Angle Dimensions in ARCHICAD

The Angle Dimension tool can be found in the toolbox palette, under the “More” group of tools: Angle Dimensions display angle values: between a pair of lines or linear edges or the angle of a curved element NOTE: Angle dimensions are not available in...

Dimensioning issue with Composite Walls

Affected version: 22 | Severity: workaround applicable | ID: 247461, 248282 Issue: When migrating a project to ARCHICAD 22 Build 3004, in Composite Wall corner situations Dimensions placed to one layer of the composite might jump to another layer of ...

Occupancy Design Validation with Expressions

A new feature of ARCHICAD 22 helps to turn the raw data into meaningful and valuable information. The expression-based properties process model data with functions and operators to produce new information which was not available directly in ARCHICAD....

Expression-based properties FAQ

Expression-based properties have been introduced as one of the main new features in ARCHICAD 22 to help designers in creating data-rich building models. Expressions process existing model data with functions and operators to create new information. F...
