Unable to delete Favorites under Custom Settings

Posted on: 26 Dec, 2013

Hi there. I'm not able to delete a custom Favorite once it's stored after using Custom Settings in the Detail Elements tool. I discovered this using the Timber Member Settings window (see screenshot). All I can do is rename a stored Favorite, but this creates a brand new Favorite, and leaves the old one cluttering up my list. Any help please?

Ive lost my keyplug and cant get the replacement to work with my tools

Posted on: 02 Jul, 2013

Hi Support team! I lost my ArchiCAD keyplug and sorted it out with my local reseller to get me a replacement. I went from a WIBU to codemeter and have managed to get ArchiCAD working but I can not get the Cadimage Tools to activate with my keyplug. Not sure if this is because its changed to a codemeter or the number is different as I am using the same log in details?Any help is appreciated! Thanks

Pens not being set when changing Detail Element?

Posted on: 25 Jun, 2013

Hi there I have went through and set up the Cadimage Preset to set the pens I require. But when we change the element they go back to the default pens? Placing a new one seems to work but we often copy through complete old details & change only the elements that need changed which creates this problem. Any ideas? Thanks!

Detail Reference Marker for AC16?

Posted on: 01 May, 2013

Hi ThereI have attached an image of a Detail Reference marker we use as standard on our jobsIt is from a CustomLib - Rapid Details library we were using in AC11.Im not sure if it is a Cadimage one or if there is a similar cadimage one available but i have not been able to find oneThis one seems to malfunction every time i reload the archicad file, in that the horizontal line vanishesWould be great if one was available with editable text/font/sizes/coloursable to use autotext and be linked to the detail layout, able to back reference automaticallyor have override custom content or values, show the current detail scale automatically etc..

Where are the old Aluminium Window sectional presets etc details?

Posted on: 08 Jan, 2013

Hi, I was under the impression that the Detail element tool had Aluminium Window frame sectional views, I was positive I had seen them in previous versions. In my installed version whether it's in v14, v15 or v16 I can only find one extrusion (01 Jamb Liners) in the '06 Door and Window' folder for the Detail Element tool. Am I looking in the wrong place or do they just not exist?

'Can't find Macro' error message

Posted on: 31 Aug, 2012

I just installed Cadimage Detail Elements, already added the toolbar button and also the Detail Elements.lcf in the Library Manager (because it seems it did not load directly). When trying to use it I get the following error: Can't find Macro: cadi_CheckForAddons, called at line 4 in the Master script of file Cadimage Insulation.gsm. I get two choices: Continue and Stop. This error pops up after double-clicking the Detail Elements button in the taskbar, and after selecting other D.E. objects in the library. The gsm file in the message has different names, depending on which Detail Element object I select in the list. I am using Archicad 16 x64 Educational. Thanks in advance!

Can I create my own profiles for detail elements?

Posted on: 06 Jun, 2012

Is it possible to create my own purlins as some of the standard ones included with the tool as our purlins in Australia vary quite a bit and I therefore cannot use the included ones which is a shame but its looks just wrong but it doesnt look correct in my detailing
