ArchiSite vrs ArchiCad

Anonymous
Not applicable
Hello,

I am trying to open an Archicad 6.5 Solo Project that has a terrain created with Archisite 5.5.

I am using Mac OS 10.3 with ArchiCad 8.1, and also ArchiCad 7.0 installed.

The original project was created on a pc and archived with all library parts and library properties attached.

When I try to view the Archisite terrain in any of the 3d views, I get an error message that there is an "Empty body". Although it eventually opens up in the ArchiCad 3D window, the view cannot be saved as an Artlantis Render file.

Has anyone run into this - and figured out a fix?

Sincerely
Tanny

Off the top of my head:

Try updating the ArchiSite library part to the ArchiCAD version that you have. Load just that object as the library, from Special menu run the Update lbrary parts command.
