Gentlemen : Recently I switched from AC15 to AC 25. I find some of my
working habits don’t work in AC25. Given a project containing five
layers, A, B, C, etc. with a number of objects on each layer. 1 Given,
the 2D screen shows the contents of layer ...
Hello Forum :I attempted to post this in a past thread but the post was
got lost in the process. I began using Archicad 9 because I was led to
believe it would allow me to model a 3D timber structure in great
detail. i.e. every 3D object was real and...
Hello : I'd like to recover a file created by AC9 on a G4 Macbook. I
have the AC9 file on my Macbook Pro, OS 10.11.6. Is the following
procedure likely to succeed? Current - MacBook Pro (13-inch, Late 2011)
10.11.6, ArchiCAD 18 Reinstall : Mac OS 10....
Hello : I am familiar with most of AC 18 but have not used the morph
tool. I’ve written a number of GDL scripts which allow me to define
posts and beams with tenons at each end. Parameters of these are set in
the scripts. And that data can be exporte...
Hello :I've opened a project I've not worked on for quite a long time.
All the parameters for the many GDLs the project contains are lost. As
far as I'm aware nothing has changed. It's the same file. My GDL library
is the same, the path name to the G...
Thank you for making the effort to illustrate. The beam is interesting.
I like the detailing, particularly the chamfer on the top and bottom
edges. (Those would be useful if they could be applied to a post). Could
that chamfer be a rabbet instead? A ...
Thank you for the URL. I’ve looked at the sections but do not see the
level of detail I was describing, namely posts and beams with custom
tenons and mortices. (Hole drilling would be useful as well) I imagine
considerable coding effort that must hav...
Hello David : Thank you for your comments. Mr Nagy said, "Renaming a GDL
Object in the File system DOES NOT modify its Main ID..." This is the
important information for me. The habit of working on a copy of a piece
of code, rather than the original w...
Hello Mr Nagy : Unfortunately the modified GDL object, along with
others, already exists. The two GDLs : v1 and v2, were both created in
AC; v2 the modified v1. I assume this means each has a unique ID. It
seems to me the only way around this is to d...
