Electrical Objects

Hello,

Is there a library for electrical objects that are 3D modelled and have the correct electrical symbol in the floorplan? I just want to place one object and has the right 3D display in my section and just the electrical symbol in the floorplan.

 

I am working with ArchiCad 26 on macOS Big Sur. 

Thank you in advance.

"correct" symbol is hard to define, but ArchiCAD's built-in objects are somewhat ok. They work decently for receptacles and switches, but I find I often still have to do 2D work like adding extra text. The GFCI symbol, range symbols, etc. don't really match the standard in my area. And it's a relatively limited set of symbols.

 

But the 3D portions of the objects are good (though a touch inconsistent with entering height data)
