Truss or Space Frame Builder


Screenshot 2024-04-24 at 8.08.46 AM.pngScreenshot 2024-04-24 at 8.08.54 AM.pngHi, 


We're trying to build a space frame in the model. We've imported a library from but whenever we place the objects into the model it comes as 3d lines which don't show up in BIMx. See attached image.


Has anyone come across this library or any recommendations for a space frame maker?



Thank you!


Operating system used: Mac Intel-based 13 Ventura

There are some space frame objects in the default Archicad library.

I have no idea what they are like, and it does not look like any of them curve.

I am not aware of any 3rd party objects.
