I first thought I raise a competition to see if someone is able to create a hatching für laminated timber that fits in every position. (means starting and ending with complete skins (40 mm here)
But I'm certainly convinced right now that this is impossible in Archicad.
I've tried so many ways now and found no solution.
There seems to be no option to fix the origin of the hatching with the elements one…
(…for slabs it works somehow).
The option in the building material definition talks only about 'orientation' not 'origin'… and it seems that Archicad cope this way with it.
I create a rectangular profile to get more control of the hatching. With 'Orientation to skin', the direction gets turned wrong. (The preview shows the defined hatching direction.)
At the place where I put the beam, the hatching origin seems to be fixed with project zero.
Do I overlook something?
If not, the topic is an (urgent) improvement suggestion
