Hi guys.I'm using archicad for a while now but i still can't control the 3d organic chapter so i'm tryng to evolve.
i just found these 2 examples online and i've been grinding my teeth for a while cause i can't find the correct workflow .
nr 1. Regarding the glass shells, the top one must be a mesh, what i cannot understand is how he got the frame thickness on the dividing panel lines (top dome)- is there a trick to turn mesh lines into beams or custom profiles that follow 3d slopes ?
nr 2. what's the workflow in creating these dome shaped-strutted glaspanes?
glass: shell, mesh or SEO?
struts: again, how do you place those profiles so that they follow inclination
p.s. i can see that the 2 components are overlayed "by hand" due to the irregular clipping (glass curved, beam straight)
nr 3. what's the best technique in creating windows like shown in this example?
i went with the "complex profiles beams + SEO" cutting technique but i find it too time consuming regarding that you would have 40 different window-shapes = 40 diff profiles that you have to customize, difficult to modify later.
...including the black glass.
Sorry fr the long post. Thanks
p.s. could not upload 2 pics so i linked the album
