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...
I work predominantly in building services and as such I have to juggle
the different standards in the world of architecture with the world of
mechanical engineering. Part of my current job is to help our company
set up some standards which are up-to-...
Hi there, I'm still getting to grips with what the IFC file format is
(and is supposed to be), but in the meantime, I'd still like to create
complete architectural models and the documentation to accompany them.
Forgive me if I'm missing something co...
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...
Thanks for your suggestion Barry, however the wall and beam tools with
complex profiles are limited in this context as noted above. Just as the
Morph tool is a great generic 'volume' tool, perhaps generic 'surface
with thickness' and 'linear with cro...
Hi David, thanks. Morphs are what I currently use, and as long as I
don't mess with the corner nodes and keep the faces planar, I can
push/pull the faces around to edit the 'perimeter' geometry and
push/pull the thickness to suit. However, although I...
