Hi everyone, Since v6, I have wished that we could put windows, doors,
openings on their own layers! Like many people, I use layers and layer
combinations which correspond to construction/demolition/temporary works
phases. This makes it handy to allo...
Hi everyone, I got into the habit of modelling wall, floor and roof
components separately, in much the same way as they are built. This
mainly helps with detailing and scheduling, but it's a bit of pain when
it comes to doors and windows, but as you ...
Hi everyone, Often at the early stages of design, I like to produce
schedules of pipe and wiring lengths, where for any given 'diameter' or
'wire gauge', I can give an early estimate of the total lengths required
(at a later stage in design, other so...
Hi everyone, I have searched around for information on whether
Ecodesigner will give realistic results if I model a building using
real-world elements. That is to say, if I model a timber-frame house
with insulation panels, services void, breather ca...
Hi there, every now and again I would like to place an object which is
basically a slab, but in a plane other than horizontal (for example, a
damp-proof membrane which follows both slab, wall and roof contours).
I'd like to be able to list these obje...
Coming from an engineering background, stories, levels and elevations to
me are all simply just sections... My suggestion is to combine stories,
reference levels, sections and elevations into a better reference/work
planes system entirely, just like ...
Thank you both for your comments. However, the main reason for trying to
find a fix to this was to address the requirement of the energy model to
have a "watertight" model made using composite slabs, walls and roofs,
but as far as I can tell, using a...
Olivier, Mario, this tool is excellent. I think it should be a native
feature of ArchiCAD! I have been looking for a tool like this for a
while (see this post:
http://archicad-talk.graphisoft.com/viewtopic.php?t=45472) but my GDL
isn't so good! Do yo...
Thanks Laszlo, however ideally the surface should also have a thickness,
so either the surface area & thickness, or just volume can be reported
in the schedule. Similarly, the polyline should have a cross-section, so
either length & section name or j...
