Request: AC Library Update - 3D wall mounted Florescent lamp

Nader Belal

Hi Graphisoft,

I would like you to include for the next version of AC, a simple 3D model for a simple 3D wall mounted flourescent lamp for lighting & MEP purposes.

Something similar to this
Thank you

Why this has to be added in a wishlist?

This is a really easy to make object with the segmented beam element.
You have the midle part and the edges.
No need for an extra object in the library.

Probably more for the colour temperature and output power settings which could be integrated into an object.

I requesed this library part for these reasons:
1) It's a basic object, that is usually used in countless projects (either by project:new - renovation - etc / or spaces: usually storage and MEP installations rooms)

2) If project elaboration is done between different members or teams, that already use ArchiCAD's international library object, that as a criteria use essential ArchiCAD objects and essential elements in real life for project definition, then it's a good idea to have it.
Beside, the object is inline with the criteria of ArchiCAD International object library.

3) If you get to see lamps. you will find a neon ceiling hanged/fixed, with multiple options, including for simple representation, but the wall fixed is a fancy model, separated from the wall by some distance, and for the spaces were I was going to use or the projects' modelling needs , it wasn't even suited for the project need, beside it being an overkill.

PS:
- Although I didn't intend for the library part to have lighting data, and as max. just the MEP connection, I would not make a fuss if it doesn't have any of those.
