Standard GraphiSoft Metric Template

MikeC
Booster

I have recently installed the US version of ArchiCAD, so when I create a new project there are two templates available: AC27 Template.tpl and ArchiCAD 27 Generic Template.tpl which are configured in Imperial.  Where can I find the equivalent GraphiSoft standard installed metric templates that I assume would be available when starting a project elsewhere in the world?

Thanks,

Mike

You can un-install the INT version after you have copied out the template and if you need it the library.

The template you can use in your USA version.

The template contains all of the attributes and measurement settings, so you don't need the INT software.

 

There are differences between the llibraries (mainly doors and windows), so ideally they should be kept separate.

But there is nothing stopping you using the USA library in the INT template.

Objects are actually all metric as far as I know - it is the Archicad settings for Working Units that displays the settings in imperial or metric.

 

I have not compared the INT and USA templates so can not comment on the differences between attributes.

If a USA object uses pen 1 and pen 1 is black in the USA template, then you use the same USA object in the INT template but pen 1 is red, then that will be an issue.

 

I guess, compare the two and see what differences there are.

It is the pen sets, line types, fills, surfaces and building materials that you need to compare.

If they are the same then you should have no trouble using either template with either library.

If those attributes are different then you will be better off using the USA template with USA library (with imperial measurement settings) and the INT template with the INT library (and metric measurement settings).

And don't copy and paste between the two.
