Importing and Cleaning up Objects in Archicad

JaredBanks

There's a bunch of ways to clean up/create Objects in Archicad. Here's a link to my recent blog post and YouTube video showing how to take a SketchUp object, explode it into a morph, clean it up, and turn it into a Archicad object with a good 2D symbol:

And here's a link to the YouTube video itself, if you want to skip the additional info in the blog post:

Page won't display for me, Jared.... maybe because your site needs an SSL certificate?  Both Chrome and Safari just sit there.

That's odd. The link works fine for me on Firefox, Safari, and Vivaldi.

Both links work fine for me in Firefox (haven't tried any other browsers).

Weird! Blog still won't open for me (I think my browsers may block non-SSL sites)... but the Youtube link is fine.  Thanks for adding that!  Cheers.

I guess I need to get that SSL certificate to remove these issues for those that are running into them. Glad it's working for the majority of people.

I thought the majority of hosts include free certificates now given Googles security change... Are you self hosting?

Dreamhost. I might just be missing a setting. I haven't done a major update to my website in too many years. It's high on the to do list.
