GDL Documentation: element types for Beam parameters not correct?

Hello, I began studying the GDL documentation.

I'd like to ask, shouldn't these be beam related element types 28, 12 instead of 27, 6?

OK, thank you.

Another question, am I sure these are all available vars/parms? Is there other documentation elsewhere?


That is it, although it does appear to be a typo with the beam parameters.

There is the GDL Reference (PDF) in the Help menu of Archicad - essentially the same as the Help Centre but without the typo.

If you go look at the Column attributes, are they the same? My guess would be that they are common between the two. Or if you have tried them already, do they give you the wrong information?

 

Scrap that. I miss read what I was looking at. Would appear to be a typo, as it is just a check list and it says "Beam" in previous versions.

Thanks, corrected it.

There are some global variables too.

Thank you, Péter, I am building up a database for the overview of all these parameters/variables/globals in their endless flavours.
