Archicad GO's (Renovation Settings)

Anonymous

Would it be possible to remove Existing,Demo & New from GO rules and rather make them part of the Graphic Override Combination sets as this would help in working more effectively with the renovation filters and one could control how new or existing walls would display on plan while not effecting new or existing furniture.

I'll take that one further. Not only should the renovation settings be in the graphical override palette but please give us the ability to hide elements as part of the GO options.

It's a long standing wish, but I'd like to note that the limitation of New/Existing/Demo status in the Renovation Property limits the opportunities to create Phasing Plans for multi-phase projects. Making this parameter just like any other GO, with the option to add more statuses (Future, Phase2New, Phase3Demo, etc.) would solve a nearly insurmountable problem, AND remain compatible with Revit's phasing capability.

Right now, we can only create ridiculous numbers of Layers to make Phases. Yes, you can now add a custom Property for Phasing, but here's ANOTHER problem... 2D elements don't have Properties! The only thing that can control 2D visibility is the Renovation Filter!

And don't even get me started about Module instances!

And add the others layer you need to add for others workarounds, I usually end up a project with a lot of extra layers just to get thing the way I need them.

I think that there is too some things in AC that relies only on layers that should not be, like hiding an element in a view.

You can't hide elements using a Graphic Override, but you can make them INVISIBLE. Pen 91 is always white in our pen sets, so I set all 2D elements to that pen. Then I change the surface to Air Space. *Poof* it's gone!

OK, this is a weak work-around, but it's better than what we've had!

Yeah, that's also a solution, really better than what we had before, but it is still to much of a workaround for a simple task, because you will need to do different rules for different objects, etc. it will be nice to have a simple option to hide an element.

Guys,

There was one improvement in AC21: The "Renovation Status" parameter of elements is now available as Graphic Override Criterion in the Graphic Override Rules Dialog of ARCHICAD 21:

Hiding elements based on GO Criteria is still not possible though.
