Hi everyone! I'm new to both python and archicad API and I'm having troubles with retrieving property values of certain elements(doors, in this case). I would appreciate a little help.
I'm using archicad26 with python 3.8.9. The code I'm using is attached below
P.S. By saying properties i mean height, width, type(single-leaf, double-leaf, sliding, and revolving doors), thickness, material(leaf and frame: for example, wood, glass, metal), оperation(swing direction, pivot point and rotation angle), Hardware(placement of glazing).
In reference to including properties in a Json file: I have included an example for anyone interested. It is really just a couple of lines. i did not brother to include all the properties mentioned, I'll leave that to you, as I think there are enough examples out there. I just picked a few from the previous examples. Note that Graphisoft's data availability is so 'screwy' that finding all of the properties is always a chore.
Basically one creates a Python dictionary and then converts that to a Json file which is just a one line function. Note that only the standard units can be converted (strings,int,float,arrays,bools, etc.). See the documentation.
This bring up a problem in that, some properties in Archicad return a object not a standard unit. One would have to iterate to the standard unit in those cases. That is why I just converted all the responses to a string-- see the example. If this would not be acceptable, then you would have to dig deeper.
BTW -- a better route might be to just create a schedule and then dump it to a excel file in Archicad
