IssueArea (by story) for Morph elements doesn't show the proper results in Element list.
IssueOld Listing: In case of Set Up List Schemes / Duplicate or Create new a "Cannot write Output File. Write Permission Error" message appears and the save fails.
CauseThere are two possible scenarios, both presenting problems. * If editing a list scheme that is loaded in the library, the new list is attempted to be added to this file.
In the Door and Window setting you have two options to show the Feuerfestigkeit and Feuerwiederstand. In the schedule the prefix will not be visible.
IssueYou want to calculate the surface of your complex profiled wall but don’t get the expected result.
SolutionThe followings should be checked:
IssueIt is possible that you don’t find the Additional Parameters for setting the needed fields in your schedule. The dialog that lists all parameters that can be used as fields for the schedule.
CauseThis part has changed in ARCHICAD 19.
SolutionClick the Add button to access the Available Parameters dialog.
IssueThe exposed area contains the reveal of the openings as well, but it is not correct based on GER or AUT norms. Extra surfaces are coming from the area above the frame, and returning areas of the reveal (see yellow contours on the picture)
SolutionIn ARCHICAD 19 it is calculated this way, it is not possible to set criteria for top/bottom/edge/end/inside/outside surfaces. As a workaround you have to set the openings so that it has no reveal. And make the calculation based on that model. Our development is working on a solution for the future releases.
IssueIf you open a Surface Schedule, it displays the Renovation Override Surface's name and color, instead of the element's actual surface's.
CauseSchedules usually have a different Renovation Filter applied. If the Renovation Filter of the Schedule has an override, it will display that override surface in 3D, and so ARCHICAD will use that surface during scheduling.
SolutionAfter opening the schedule, change the Renovation Filter to one without Renovation Overrides. We plan to fix this issue with the next regular update of ARCHICAD 19.
Issue and CauseWith Priority Based Connections in ARCHICAD 17, the calculation of wall areas has changed.
IssueSometimes it can come up that you want to use the old functionality: The Legacy Surface method means that Surfaces are set only at the element level (they do not come from Building Materials, which were introduced in ARCHICAD 17) – except in the case of Profile elements.
SolutionTo access this functionality, go to Options > Project Preferences > Legacy. Check the Use legacy intersection and Surface methods for model elements
CausePrior to Hotfix 4 of ARCHICAD 15 openings, such as doors and windows, determined the floor they belonged to by geometry alone. That is, the opening’s height was compared against the story settings. The opening’s geometric center determined the floor it belonged to. Below is a simplified example of the old behavior using two 2-story blocks. The one to the right is offset lower than the defined story settings. The top most walls are on story 2.
SolutionThe solution is for the door to get its floor information from the wall that contains it. If the containing wall has a home story of 2, then the door considers itself to be on floor two. To coerce this new behavior in ARCHICAD 15 you must add a registry key and also you must make sure your version is at least Hotfix 4 build 3898. Below is an example of what your registry would look like if you were an Australian user.
Solution (an important caveat)The default behavior in ARCHICAD 16 is for an opening to use its containing wall for information about which floor it belongs to. Likewise in ARCHICAD 15, if you have added the registry key mentioned above and set its value to "1", ARCHICAD 15 will also report opening floor values based on its containing wall's home story. Now comes the caveat. A multistory wall has one home story, but the openings within it can span several stories. So it is important to address areas where openings should calculate their relevant story geometrically as was the case before this new behavior was introduced. Two Floor Plan Display options are important to how an opening's floor value is determined:
