Creating custom smart objects can be challenging
Archicad’s built-in library offers a vast number of BIM objects. Thanks to its GDL technology, it's easy to create different versions of an object by changing its parameters.
Although there is a built-in library in Archicad, there is a growing need and desire to create custom smart library objects. However, this can be a challenge if you are unfamiliar with GDL.
In the earlier versions of Archicad, the Library Part Maker (LPM) add-on was introduced to simplify and streamline the creation of custom GDL-based library objects for specific localized versions (INT, UKI, USA, GER, AUT, ITA, SPA, BRA, HUN).
Easily create GDL objects in your language
Starting with Archicad 26, new improvements will apply to the add-on:
Every localized version of Archicad contains this add-on in the same language.
In earlier versions, we provided a template file to help you get started with the LPM. With Archicad 26, we removed it from the package. Instead, we offer an online space with tutorials, training materials, and sample projects. Visit Graphisoft Learn and take the Archicad 26 Upgrade Training to learn more about LPM.
Faster Modeling and Documentation
Graphisoft speaks your language and supports you in integrating custom object creation into your workflows by providing learning content and sample projects.
These will allow faster modeling and documentation without hiring an expert for this specific purpose by creating the project-specific elements quickly by yourself.
