I am using 23 FR version. Thats also a small detail - the french language as opposed to an English standard version template. There seems to be a few options if EN is the chosen language setting. However, if in FR - anyone any suggestions ?

Cant really adopt an INT or EN template when using FR & Swiss standards

thx

Ok i see your predicament - but you could use the INT version of ARCHICAD with a local template...

As a long time Template developer / provider I am clearly biased - but do you have any idea how much effort goes into creating a proper ARCHICAD template?

Even if you do not end up liking it, you will have a blueprint to learn a lot from.

Additionally, keep in mind how much you invested into your ARCHICAD license(s) - anything that makes that investment worthwhile, be it training and / or a template (btw. at a fraction of the license cost) is priceless and will pay for itself in no time...

Hello, 

 

I have been working on building a Archicad 26 Metric Template for the office. Despite working in the US where they mostly use Imperial measurements, we do have projects that are mostly in metric measurements.

 

  • Is there a a sample Metric Template available somewhere to use as a reference? 
  • Is there a template file available that include built in schedules that calculate and show both metric and imperial calculations for floor space areas and volumes etc. ?

 

Thanks in Advance.

There really is no difference between an imperial and metric template.

It is exactly the same file, you just change the working units, calculation units and dimension styles to be the type of unit and precision that you want.

These are all found in the project preferences and you can change them at any time you want, even half way through a job.
