Where is the Cadimage profile manager? Want to add a custom profile

Posted on: 09 Jan, 2013

Hi, I was using my Cadimage Extrusions tool today & wanted to create my own profile as I have done in previous versions of ArchiCAD with the Cadimage Profile Manager only to find I dont seem to have the Cadimage Profile Manager in ArchiCAD16. Is this a seperate tool that we dont own anymore? Or should I have it as I have in previous versions? I looked in the work environment - menus to see if it's there but haven't yet been added to the Cadimage menu & I couldn't find it.

Can I adjust the shape of the Cadimage Purlin roof object

Posted on: 09 Jan, 2013

Hi, am wanting to model a steel purlin roof with the cadimage purlins tool (fixed spacing or equal spacing). However the roof is divided by a hip at a 45 degree angle. Can you have the end of the cadimage purlins angled in plan? Or is the only way around this to have each purlin as a single modelled object with different lengths? Thanks

How can I show my purlins with a fill in Plan view?

Posted on: 11 Oct, 2012

Hi Can you tell me please, if it is possible for me to show my purlins with a fill in plan view? If so, how? I have overlapping roofs and it is very confusing on my plan which purlins belong to which roof. If they had a fill I could sort that by bringing the appropriate ones forward and send others to the back. Thanks

I have created a fill and profiled it to the barge board shape required. I create a new custom profile and name it accordingly. When I go to find it in extrusions, I cannot do anything with it ?? Thanks

Cant seem to be able to edit Extrusion profile size

Posted on: 11 Oct, 2012

Good morning. I'm having a bit of trouble adjusting the height of a particular RHS profile. I've tried selecting the appropriate nodes in the options screen (node 2 & 3) and tried entering a height value into the window next to the preview window. However, when I do input a height value into this window the object doesn't increase the height at all. Sometimes it even distorts the object. I spent a good hour yesterday just playing around with different options and haven't been able to get anyway. Would you be able to shed some light on this for me please. :) Kind regards,

What is the best way to model a handrail to a ramp

Posted on: 08 Jun, 2012

I have made a ramp using meshs and slabs though am having great difficulty using columns and beams to create a handrail that follows the ramp which also give me misleading plan view symbols. What is the best way to create a complex shape ramp handrail?

Where are all the steel profile presets for Extrusions?

Posted on: 08 Jun, 2012

In Archicad 14 the selection of steel profiles in the Extrusions Tool was quite large, covering most if not all the sizes available for UBs, PFCs etc. In Archicad 15 the number of profiles is quite small. How do I get the full list again? Can I import the profiles from 14, and if so how do i do this please? Thanks
