Wrap GDL in Python


Make python a first-class citizen when it comes to creating geometry (even creating "elements" i.e: wall, slabs in Archicad.)


Is hard to understand the design decision of using python for information/documentation management, GDL for creating objects and Grasshopper for creating "elements".


No one feels this ecosystem of automation tools like a mess? Graphisoft is losing "elegance". Where is the "best in class" lemma that Graphisoft used for years as a principle when it comes to last decade demand of automation and tooling?


P.S: Apologize if it sounds rude, but it just want to express my frustration that keeps being there, year after year.




Totally agree!. There have been various advancements through the years in regards to python, grasshopper, param-o etc that have been left behind. They all had promise and would extend Archicad to give it a tangible advantage over their opposition but for whatever reason these developments have gone nowhere. I share your disappointment in the direction GS seem to be taking with Archicad. It will result in users swapping to newer, more nimble software to achieve the results they are looking for. 


By the way, Rhino 8, currently on WIP, is CPython friendly
