MEP 27 - Object development manuals?

kuvbur
Enthusiast

We have been using MEP very actively since version 20. Over the years, we have developed a large number of MEP-compatible objects. How to transfer (change the code?) them to the new version of the MEP modeler AC27? Where can I read about creating MEP objects for AC27?

Hi,

 

There are two issues to handle:

  • Subtype ID's have changed. For a large number of objects it is easier to change them in source code.
    1. de-compile to HSF using LP_XMLConverter
    2. find&replace in ancestry.xml
    3. change MainGUID in libpartdata.xml (to avoid confusion with pre-AC27 objects)
    4. compile using LP_XMLConverter
  • Routing elements' system attributes are set/overridden in the tool settings dialog for the whole route. If you want to use this feature, use MEP_ROUTE_ATTRIBUTES request (instead MEPSYSTEM application_query's): https://gdl.graphisoft.com/new-features-guide/new-gdl-features-in-archicad-27
