Find the Maximum Fillet/Chamfer Radius for Closed Polygons

Ken

When you are working with a closed polygon (Fill, Polyline, Slab, Roof etc) and want to apply a radius or chamfer to a corner you do not need to guess the maximum value, or work it out manually - you can get ARCHICAD to do this for you, automatically.

To find the maximum value is really simple - you select your closed polygon then click a corner and choose the Fillet/Chamfer… option as shown with the Fill below:

Don’t have boring drawing frames!

Drawing Frames in ARCHICAD and most packages are typically drawn as rectangles… but why stick with something so simple?  Did you know you can make the frame (boundary) of a drawing almost any shape?

Let's get one thing straight though before going too far into this - when we talk about a ‘drawing’ we are meaning a Drawing in the ARCHICAD sense.  This is either an imported document (PDF, image, DWG, DXF etc) or a View that has been saved then placed on a Layout.

“Chris and Link from BIM6x have been an incredible assistance and resource for our firm as we have implemented ARCHICAD into our office workflow. Not only are they experts in the use and implementation of the software, they are also very enjoyable to work with. They are always quick to respond to any questions or issues that we may have ... and if they don’t have the answers (which is rare) they know where to send us to find them. Their technical support is by far the best that we have ever had in our industry and their development of the BIM6x ARCHICAD Template Kits is a testament of their desire to see their clients succeed.”

“The decision to adopt ARCHICAD as our company’s only BIM modeling platform was the best decision I ever made! Not only do we produce professional three-dimensional details and artistic construction documents, we are able to quickly update the drawings anytime a revision occurs. Graphisoft provides best-in-class support and has been very responsive to our needs.”
