The Wood Ceiling add-on allows users to apply 3D wainscoting to an existing roof.

Before Starting

1. Download and install the Goodies package here.

2. Add the Accessories Library to the project library. It is located under the ArchiCAD version folder under the Graphisoft folder in the Applications directory on Mac or the Program Files folder on PC.

Note: If you cannot locate the Accessories Library under the ArchiCAD version folder this means that the add-on has not been installed properly.

Applying the Wood Ceiling

1. Select the roof(s) you wish to apply the add-on to. If it is a single plane roof skip to step 5, if not continue to step 2.

2. Right click, in the menu select Split into Single-plane Roofs.

Note: The surface can only be applied to single plane roofs.

3. In the Warning dialogue box, click Split anyway.
