“Options” looks promising.

1. New Design Options looks interesting - will try to use it;

2. More broad search was very needed - Very good, very needed for bigger projects;

3. Object placement anchoring dimensions - very useful one (Don't hesitate to borrow nice functions from Revit in future also);
4. Multiplication and Division in Drag Cursor is good step forward;
5. GO - will clean up my GO rules into folders as it will be available.

Thanks for posting the Archicad 27 product overview video. I have not seen that one till now. It definitely looks promising for DO’s “Design Options”. It will be interesting to see how it will all work in practice ?

 

I have waited for 20 years to get something like DG’s “Distance Guides” in Archicad. Probably because I was used to other CAD software that positions elements in a similar manner. 

The schedule improvements are great too. One gets the feeling that GS are targeting the US market even more in recent times. That’s a good thing for all of us and has the potential to gain many more users from other CAD software companies over to Archicad. That in-turn could drive the future direction of Archicad’s core development ? 

We all know that complexity of design is driving the future of Architecture and it will be interesting to see what is developed with future versions of Archicad. Right now they are happy to collaborate with other free form modelling solutions but I wonder if GS and by extension NC have any plans to create their own free form modelling solution that will work right inside Archicad ?

To add to the above:

I was always frustrated with the overide rules because of the lack of folders. I was using Codes to create categories but at the end there were so many that I had to scroll up and down to find the proper one. The folders will make me use them more often...nice addition.

The best thing is that the design options are functional with hotlinks....Several different hotlinks=just one file to edit.

This looks huge!

The design options looks like an introduction to the phasing feature, it's interesting how archicad manages elements visibility, now we have layers, renovation filter, design options, and sometimes G.O.

I would like to be able to come out of the GDL Editor in archicad 28.
This is because most visual studios work on horizontal monitors, and it is much better to check them on another screen in Editor. Still, the ArchiCAD developers who worked hard to provide the dark mode worked hard.

And I want to be able to create a single composite object using commands such as Wall and Slab within GDL.
The desire is for a medium that can control the things that are often created.
I hope once again that it is controlled by parameter values such as A and B, and then becomes each object during Explode.
I hope that GDL will also be decomposed into various final GDLs such as toilets during Explode.
This is my small opinion. ^^

Finally can we write "Grand Total" at the last line of one schedule ? Rsrs

I still have not figured out if just changing the position of an object will be considered a design option, or do we have to delete it and place a new one..........

The first will be really something as obviously it decreases the work significantly.......

 

(but I have the feeling I am asking too much!!!!)

Greetings

Still no override rules applied on layers of a composite element (walls , slabs..)
