GDL to make a Custom Shape Opening for Slab/Roof element.

Not applicable

I wish to have a feature to make a Custom Shape Opening for Slab/Roof Element because it cannot be done in AC22 now. I think it should be native feature to make a opening for Slab like for Wall element does.

Because when I drawing detail model and drawings for construction phrase.
If I don't want to use Solid Operation, I need to create 2 column for opening (see image) and Not just only this case, maybe more and more custom shape if it can be done via GDL.

I think it can be done this issue easier in Revit by the Family void and parameter.
So hope to see this feature in ArchiCAD because I love ArchiCAD's direction.

Thank you and regards,

Hi All,

Thank you for your input and discussions in this thread!

I believe this would be an interesting tool to implement. With the current Openings tool, it still has certain limitations. It would be especially great if we can just place the openings using the native Windows/Doors tool on to the slab or roof!

I have entered this wish into our Wishlist database (please refer to it as #12804). I really hope that our Product Management team will consider adopting it in the future!

Thank you all once more, and have a great day!

Best regards,
