I don't know if this issue was already mentioned somewhere... don't know for which expression else I could search for it here..
I'd like to have in a Archicad file more independent areas, more "ground floor windows" where I can construct 3D elements freely to use it somewhere in the project... as hotlinks or something else...
Settings like story height and so on should not interfere with the the complete model (which should be like a part of the "world-map".
It should be possible to define Areas in the ground floor window(s) which then isolated from the rest. (like the frame in LPM)
With this opportunity I think it was possible to save hotlinks of this parts via publisher. (Currently I have every time to select (only) this parts or use the marquee... when I want e.g to see different variants side by side...)
ARCHICAD for Future ______________________________________
Are you asking for some kind of 3D worksheet? Then they would be positioned in the model as you would do with a hotlink? I think this could be useful and avoid the need to make fake underground levels to model 3D elements linked to the same project.
I think that the functionality you describe would be achieved by the ability to define group/block/aggregate of element/s that can have multiple instances in the model. It's something that AC really lacks (and most other applications have) and discussed here amongst other places.
