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.

If we had this model view option, it would greatly help the scale-sensitivity problem for composites and profiles. Background only for small scale output, detailed fills at large scales. I've wanted scale-sensitive composites as long as I can remember. This seems easier? Note the cover fill option right there. Drafting fills too, sure. Consistency.
The user has requirements. The software has capabilities. Where the capabilities end and the requirements keep going is a limit. To get beyond the limit requires workarounds. Some limits are harder than others and all we can do is wish (beg) them removed. Here's a rich example concerning structural posts (columns) in residential construction. These are things like 4x4s, multiple
Here I present an extra-strident version of the usual consistency argument. Graphisoft should adopt as an unbreakable regulation the idea of a Standard Element. All elements would be required to meet the standard, otherwise they're not elements. Graphisoft would mostly be enforcing this law on themselves, though add-on developers would be bound by it as well. In turn, Graphisoft would
Somebody asked why the flue object can't show a thickness for the flue liner itself. One reason: The flue sits atop, and lines up with, the top of the smoke chamber object. In section this gives a continuous void. If a thickness is built in to the flue, there would be a discontinuity at the top of the smoke chamber,
An object like the Foundation Drain is trying to offer total geometry and annotation for a particular detail. We want to pack this object with all the data we can think of. The geometry is in good shape, but we're missing the notes calling out all the parts. These will need to be added manually with labels or texts. Since
