Waiting for 3D updates......as the clock ticks

Anonymous

I am running AC on a dual processer MAC with lots of memory and still it takes for ever to run the 3D views.
Yes it makes a difference if I only take a view of the required area, etc, etc. However, does anybody have a way to stop the redrawing of a view for each and every modification one does? So that one can make a few changes and then, and only then, ask for a redraw - so that the time it takes to redraw will be all taken at once ?

What version of Archicad? In Archicad 9, you can use "Manual Rebuild."

Is any "non-needed" layer turned off? Are you interior layers turned off when you build elevations? Are your section depths appropriate? (elevations only go to ridge line, not through entire building)

You can tell AC to not auto rebuild the 3d window by going to work environment imaging and calculation. Deselect the appropriate settings, you are now in control.
