Beginning with Archicad 20, the fills division of Model View Options is obsolete and fills are handled by Graphic Overrides. This enables us to eliminate several combinations that were needed in Archicad 19. Model View Options can be organized into combinations, kind of like layers, and MVO combinations can be saved with views. Naturally, this is all set up in
My view of the template is this: Anything you always, or even usually, do on a project should be started in the template. Stories, sections, elevations. Views, lots and lots of views. Not just some layouts, almost all the layouts. You're going to publish PDF and DWG. You're going to print. You're going to do sketch render and BIMx. And
This is obsolete as of Archicad 15. From that version onward, renovation is the way. Read this instead. What happens when the existing model and drawings are done. The basic idea is to keep the existing conditions, both the PLN and the layout book, tucked away safely. It is theoretically possible to get existing drawings out of the addition project,
What happens if you revive an ancient project and you want use the layout structure of the current template?
The interior elevation tool is like a compound elevation tool geared towards presenting rooms rather than whole buildings. It creates a group of sub-viewpoints within a header viewpoint. The header viewpoint is a polygon, which is, in turn, generally associated with a room. Each edge of the polygon shows one wall of the room, in its own window. IEs can
Model View Options, formerly known as Display Options, can be organized into combinations, kind of like layers, and MVO combinations can be saved with views. Naturally, this is all set up in the templates. MVOs are completely separate from On-screen View Options, which are screen-only and do not affect output. The MVO dialog has three divisions. Options for Construction
Every viewpoint has a name and an ID. The name is important and is often used for output. The ID is never used for output, but wherever possible we use the ID to help organize the project map and view map. For viewpoints with with a marker, the name and ID appear in the Info Box and settings dialog. This
Template View Map orientation session. Remember that views are viewpoints (stories, sections, details, etc) plus user options such as scale, layers, model view options, and dimension standards. Views become drawings in layouts. We need views for each kind of output we're going to produce. Additionally, we want views for the various modes of work we do in the model. We
The workflow: Build the model, fill it with information, decide what you want to show, and get the drawings out as automatically and predictably as you can. We want to focus on the model; that's where the building is. We want the output to just work. Modeling and annotation is craft. Output is for robots. This duality is evident in
Other dialogs here. The source files of some Hotlinked Modules are missing Sources of the following Drawings are unavailable! If this item is part of a clone, its clone will also be deleted Polygon boundary intersects itself!
Background: Navigator Theory Issue: You need plumbing (or mechanical, etc) plans, which aren't set up in the templates. This is a piece of cake.
There are three main ways to create views in AC10, plus one more you should never use. The templates have most of the commonly needed views already set up, but it's not unusual to need more.
There are the layer combinations for work and the layer combinations for output. In the past, the output LCs have had all their layers locked. The only reason for this was make clear to the user that they're not in a working combination. Not a critical point but there it is. Now there's a stronger reason to have the layers
The model is in there. Don't look at it, just imagine it. Think of the real buildings you can't see at the moment. The Lincoln Memorial is there. Trust me. The model is before everything in the Navigator. No model, nothing to Navigate, right? The Navigator in AC10, besides being indispensable to your productivity, is good illustration of Archicad's intended
The AC9 Display Options dialog had two divisions. 'Options for Display Only' only affect screen appearance. 'Options for Display and Output' also affect the printed output. In 10, these two groups are entirely separated, even to the point of appearing on different menus. 'Options for Display Only' no longer has a dialog box. They become the items on the menu
