This is something I am sure has been brought up many times over the years, but I will say it again, we need a more efficient way to create parametric objects within Archicad.
I am currently working on a hospital project in Australia and I have been tasked with creating our company AusHFG library for current and future hospital projects. Whilst I love using GDL, I can’t help but think as an Archicad practice we are at a severe disadvantage when it comes to creating objects when compared to Revit based practices.
Creating parametric objects is critical to hospital work and a lot of resources are spent creating a working AusHFG library, time that could be better spent on project work. It’s evident that there has been community backlash with regard to the latest Archicad release. I think it’s fair to say that Archicad really needs to do something big for long term Archicad users like myself in order to win back trust. A more efficient way to create parametric objects is a great place to start and something that frankly needs to be addressed. Revit is looking more and more appealing.

Unfortunately you are going to continue to be disappointed. The driving programmer behind PARAM-O has long since left GS and the current management don't seem to realize that PARAM-O, as it is now, was just a proof of concept. To understand what it could be just have a look at Vectorworks Marrionette. If PARAM-O was at that level then it would be amazing! The reality is that it is not, and I can't see GS bothering to update/develope it anytime soon.
