D Arch opening in AC12

Not applicable
Hello everyone!

I'd like to write about a problem I met, while using AC12.
A wanted to make an D Arch Opening, quite a big one. 5,4m wide, 2,5 m tall. I experienced a strange bug (i guess it is) that curve's resolution is only 3. I tried to chage to resolution from 10 to 500, (and tried to change everything else) but it has absolutly no effect.

Anyone has met this problem before? Is there a way to fix this?

I attached a pic to see the problem.

Thank You!

I've heard similar reports. What platform are you using Akos?

It is buggy on windows, but at least it's not set to a curve resolution of 4.

I can't seem to reduce the curve resolution. The preview window in the door selection settings appears to change when I modify the curve resolution, but not the placed object....See attached...

...and when I increase the size to the range of your example, I get the same result...I jumped the gun...

It's too bad...I use this object all the time!

and a quick check of the parameter script finds several other errors...

I took a brief look at the D Arch Opening 12. The Curve Resolution parameter is used in the 3D Script only for the Settings Dialog (GLOB_CONTEXT = 5), you can see its effect in the preview window, but not in the part itself; the 3D for the opening is created with a macro (not code in the 3D Script), so I think the Curve Resolution parameter is not getting passed on to the macro. I post this so whoever is responsible for the part can get a head start on fixing it.

Thank you! I hope there will be a solution soon...

Still?????  I get 3 segments on a 12' opening???? So much for fixing this by 2022 Ac25.  My kitchen cabinet still look ridiculous with an arched opening in the back.  I hope they are not building it like that... 🙄

Have you tried increasing the curve resolution value that you can see at the bottom of your screen shot?
