Customize your TV screens and monitors

...and lots of other things too!

Rather than use the same old GRAPHISOFT images on some of the Objects - use your own personal photographs or graphics. This applies to the following ranges of ARCHICAD 20 Library parts:

  • Carpet 20

  • Picture 20

  • Flat Panel TV 20

  • Widescreen TV 20

  • iMac 20

  • Laptop 20

  • MacBook 20

  • Monitor (LCD) 20

  • Monitor 20

With each one of these, there is an option to apply an images from the Loaded Library to replace the default image or color. All you need to do is ensure the image you want to use is loaded somewhere with your Libraries, and has a name that is easy to remember and type (the reason why will become apparent shortly!).

The next thing to do is decide which Object you want to use then set it up with the normal parameters. Once this is done you need to look for an option that is called Use Custom Picture. The actual location of this field will vary slightly from Object to Object… in some of the older Objects it will be contained in the Parameters list.

Here it is in the newer Object interfaces:
