At Rill Architects we run ArchiCAD on Mac OS X. If you work at Rill, this is your stuff. If you don't, but you work in ArchiCAD, you may find something interesting. Anybody else, I don't know.

All the typical layouts (that I can think of) are blocked up in the project templates. Developing the layouts consists mostly of framing the plan, tuning up the section/elevations, and arranging the drawings on the sheets.
Or, seen and not seen. Fills, white pens, and materials.
In Archicad terminology, a marker is a special object that has a subordinate relationship to another element, representing the element and/or saying something about it. Viewpoint markers represent viewpoints in project windows. Each viewpoint type has its own marker objects. There are default markers for each one in the Archicad library, but we (as usual) use customized stuff. Each marker
A reference marker is a special object that can intelligently refer to viewpoints within the project or drawings placed on layouts. They also create viewpoints, which is a strange kind of double duty. Then you can also create viewpoints without markers... it's not intuitive overall. For most cases, you can think of a viewpoint as an application window. Sections, elevations,
Everything I can think of about sections and elevations. Updated for AC10.
In Archicad 10, sections can automatically show story level markers and lines. They are feature-limited but I think they're worth using.
Fill display is confusing and inconsistent. Until it gets tidied up, this is all I can tell you.
After I posted about the jellyfish a couple third-party observers commented, paraphrasing, 'Duh, of course you need to turn the hidden stuff off'. (Quick review: The issue there was clustered arrangements of elements, where AC was taking a long time to sort out the hidden lines.) Maybe so, but the last time we visited this issue, which was probably way,
The integrated layout book in AC10 makes it even easier to start layouts in advance, in the templates, and have them nearly 'just work'. All the common layouts (that I can think of) are blocked up in the project templates. Developing the layouts consists mostly of framing the plan, tuning up the section/elevations, and arranging the drawings on the sheets.
Location: 01 General : 1 Graphic Symbols Replaces Elev Marker JM9. It's been bi-axially flipped around to make it more standard. The circle gadget is on the left, where it belongs, and the description is on the top, where it belongs. Editing hotspots First spot: beginning of bend. Second spot: End and depth of bend. End spot: depth of bend
Editing in section has taken a big step forward, but it still isn't finished. You can: • Stretch most things in height. • Stretch walls and beams in length. • Edit the slope of roofs. And sloping beams, columns, and walls. These interactions use palette buttons, identical to the 3D window. You still can't: • Stretch objects in height. What
Starting with AC 10, we will use 'real' section markers. When we started with AC 5.1, there were fixed section marker styles. (Like the fixed dimension ticks and arrowheads to this day.) We didn't like the available styles, so we adopted the policy of showing sections in plan with an object, independent of the SE cutting element. The independent object
• S/E Status (Model/Drawing). It is just really strongly recommended that all building elevations and sections be model views. Developing model sections is a little harder than elevations, but anyone can do it with practice. I usually keep S/E's set to Auto-rebuild. • S/E Element Placement. Marker ends should not extend too far beyond the building itself. Our section
Location: 01 General : 1 Graphic Symbols Very similar to SectElevDetail Marker JAM9, with the improved autotext handling discussed here. Same as with Detail Area JAM9, paste just the gibberish part of the autotext from PlotMaker into the "Paste Autotext Here" field. The drawing name and number will fill in. If you are using the Double Section symbol type, paste
For labeling doors and windows in section/elevation. This is completely different from the dimension marker used in plan. It is intended to be used as an associated label. How about a quick review of associated labels. To place an associated label, select the element, in the window you want the label, and Check 'label Elements' in the Info Box. Which
Why: Same reason as always. Model views are more consistent and easier to maintain. Modeling is the better way to work things out for real. You can block up passable wall sections earlier without sacrificing consistency. To get them graphically perfect will require conversion to drawing in the end, but you can put it off at least through design development.
Some elements were deleted because of bad parameters (n) This project is in use by [Somebody] Unable to read temporary section file [ID] Cannot find some Library Parts or Macros. Other dialogs here.
Location: 01 General : 3 Drawing Tools (FYI*) This is a section tool marker, not a graphic section marker for display in documents. For that, you still use the object SectElevDetail Marker JAM. It's very simple. The only parameter besides text size is the height of the flag. Why bother? It's better than the default "basic section" in that it's
I assume you've fully internalized the regular perspective. From the Archicad bar stunts file, you can also do this: I don't know why, but I like it.
Perhaps you are looking at an element in an S/E window, and want to find the element in the plan. Select the element in the section. Drag it somewhere. Undo. Return to the plan. The element will be selected. Or, delete it, and Undo. Caveat: The plan window must be on a story where the element is showing. Use Zoom
