Advanced Tools for Archicad

Window and doors

Q. How do I stop the opening lines and arrows from showing in elevation and 3D.

Q. The plan view of the window and doors will not show sizes

A. Make sure your model view options have window and door markers ‘Un-checked’ (Model View Options are found in the document menu). Save the Model View Option with your View in the Navigator so you can easily toggle them on and off.

Q. How can I put a custom door panel in the 4D Doors

A. Use “Custom Components”!.  Create a 3D symbol using ArchiCAD 3D elements ( generally – Slabs and walls) . Select them then go to the file menu\Libraries and Objects\Save Custom Component.. From the preceeding dialog, save as a “Door panel” component (or window if you are creating a custom window) and save to your library. Now open a 4D doorl part, select custom component as the panel type then select the component name from the pull out menu. (This name will go through to the door and window schedule)
