I’ve resurrected a fairly complex project from ArchiCAD 13. It was
archived as a *.pla file back then so there were no complaints from the
Action Center when I opened it in Ac24. I’ve also had to sort out a few
issues getting it out of legacy mode, b...
I’ve been reasonably fluent in GDL scripting for years now but I haven’t
had any experience with this kind of graphic node based interface. I see
it used now in a lot of programs like the UnReal engine and Grasshopper,
but I find the whole thing baff...
I have to export a project’s permit drawings to DWGs with greyscale
colors. I like to work with a color pen set, so rather than switch the
whole project over to greyscale, I created a duplicate greyscale pen set
and then set up the permit drawings on...
When exporting to DWG format I select “Export fill backgrounds as
additional solid hatches” in the DFX-DWG translator. I can see the
result in the DWG TrueView viewer and it looks fine. But I’ve never had
to work in Autocad. What actually happens in ...
I’m seeing some strange behavior in AC 23: Sometimes when I delete a
layer the elements on that layer will remain visible in the floor plan.
Highlighting one of these elements, its layer is noted as “missing” in
the element settings menu and info box...
I didn’t mean to give anyone the impression that I was a GDL guru. I
generated that script for a morph cube by dragging a morph from the
Archicad 3d window into the 3D script window of a new library object.
The GDL script of any Archicad element can ...
There is no MORPH element in GDL. Archicad creates morphs on the fly
using primitive GDL elements VERT, VECT, EDGE, PGON & BODY. See GDL
Reference guide page 137. This is why morphs are so parametrically dumb,
compared to other GDL elements, but it’s...
It would be great if the FPCP dialog had the option to specify a
different cut plane height for each story. I know saved views can have
different floor plan cut planes, but it would be nice to have those FPCP
heights displayed in the dialog.
Number 5:To turn off dumb preview pop-up in tab bar:Options/Work
Environment/More Options/Uncheck "Show Preview in Tab Bar."It took me
years to make peace with the tab bar. You need to get really disciplined
with your view settings. They're useful la...
It seems like both the railing and the curtainwall solutions assume the
basic fretwork modules will fit perfectly in between the columns. Easier
I think to just do it all with morphs. Copy the basic module, Union them
into one morph and trim to fit.B...
