Can GS start a data wish list section please? I was making a comment on
a wish about complex profiles: A complex profile is like drawing a
construction system But the materials that make up that system all need
to have their own data At the moment we...
The detail tool in Archicad still works in a very old fashioned way,
requiring you to regen what is essential 2D information. I haven't used
it much for that reason for years. It does however have a use in that
you can link the detail marker to any v...
I have been trying to find a solution to this problem for some time and
have come up with a workaround to share. The problem is that zones do

You can probably access the plant name in auto text and then control
visibility wth layers. You might need to dig a bit deeper than normal in
the object data, but it should be there. the alternative is to create

You are not limited to 2D you can add the closure separately as a beam,
maybe part of the lintel you need anyway using complex profiles that way
it appears in 3D and all sections and you can schedule it if you
carefully make the complex profile you c...
Your technique would work. I have a different approach. I create
standard elements that I re-use across a lot of projects and store them
in a file called favourites. I find that easier than having to manage

The surfaces are pretty good representation but the lighting is also
critical. If you set up the 3D view you want and adjust the lighting
well you can save that as a view and it will make the preview process
pretty much instant. One trick you can do ...
