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.
Anyone who has used ARCHICAD for any length of time will be more than familiar with StairMaker and the bewildering array of Stair (or Ramp) shapes that are possible. These are often difficult to configure and require lots of to-ing and fro-ing from plan to section to StairMaker to get all the necessary dimensions required. Surely there must be an easier way!
When you use ARCHICAD to create building models, you learn pretty quickly that thinking about the direction of a Wall and it’s Reference Line is pretty important.
Very often you spend a lot of time violently throwing the mouse from one side of the screen to the other just to change the Reference Line position of a Wall… without that, inside ends up out and vice versa!
