How do YOU make Gates? I work mostly in schools, and designing the site
is nearly as important as the building, especially in Arizona. The gates
are not simply chain-link hinged panels, but security access perimeter
parts that have complex components...
In ArchiCAD 21, several long-lived 2D Objects were removed from the
ArchiCAD Library, which were very useful for detailing consistently.
These include wood trim profiles, break lines, brackets and hold-downs,
brick coursing, a column marker, and sect...
Interoperability amongst BIM tools is obviously the goal in the OpenBIM
movement. However, just exporting geometry to another application isn't
enough if the format is not optimized. Many tools, like Sketchup and
eQuest, operate best with simplified ...
I would like to revisit this thread to see if anyone has mastered this
workflow. This question is, how can we set up "cloned" apartments in a
large building, using Hotlink Modules, such that the embedded Zones and

However, I'd like to check to see if this is a common issue. I have
created several DWG Translators for various file import and export
scenarios. These files are kept on one of our serv...
We're gradually adopting Windows and getting rid of Macs in my office
(much to my chagrin), and we have to stay vigilant on this. I keep the
improved XReadCfg.txt file on a server so it is always installed on new

continue to send my wishlists to Graphisoft. I have experimented with
both Properties and Classifications as a source for Keynote
descriptions, and I've found that either would work. Cu...
We have quite a few designers that now prefer drawing suspended grid
ceilings with the Curtain Wall tool. It does have advantages. Our
"standard" method is to use Slabs, and we apply a 3D Grid Accessory
(which is limited in geometry) to the Slab usin...
In response to @Moonlight many pages ago, suggesting that ArchiCAD
provide Facilities Management tools... Graphisoft has, or rather had a
Facilities Management solution: ArchiFM. You even occasionally find
references to it in ArchiCAD library parts. ...
