Not applicable
Hi, as you see I'm the new one on this forum, but I have some BIG questions First sorry about my english.
I need a help about hyperbolical surfaces.How do you model them?Do you use just archicad or some add-ones too?I really need answers because I had a lot of problems with that...
Here is a pic of that surface I'm asking for help...

The easiest way is to use Mesh 3D object from Object Depository in ArchiCAD:
There are another solutions also - ArchiForma add-on or 3ds import to ArchiCAD.

Thank you fellows.But i didn't ask for gdl or built objects.I want to learn how to model them, so I will try with this mesh3D2V.Is that an add-one?I tried archiforma and everything I won except those ruled, translational and coones surfaces

At first this tool mesh3D2V is great.Really usefull and not hard to play with it.Thank you for that. But this what Fabrizio made is excactly what I was looking for.I got archiforma just month ago, and I love it.But I said I can't made this.I read manual help several times, but when I draw those 3d polylines everything what I recieve is like a fill in 3d.
