My Wall Frame Preset Manager is missing from the Wall Frame menu

Posted on: 10 Jan, 2013

Hi i have installed the trials tools following all the steps and when i want to place a wall frame into my composite wall it just simply does not work at all i have been watching video and help from archicad an cadimage website but still does not work All the tools are setup and activated. Would you help me to figure out whats going on. My directors want to purchase the tool but they wont do it before they see it is working, perhaps if you send me the relevant inf. about how to install and use (brochure for dummies) where i can check step by step. There is no wall frame presets manager and i have checked everything in the installation packed i have download on monday 26th, so my guess is that the trial packet for A V15 is incomplete unless you have the right answer for the problem Thanks

Is it possible to get the Master cut list in imperial?

Posted on: 10 Jan, 2013

Jonny - Thank you for the information earlier. I did find the file and was able to extract the information from the .txt file. I am unsure what the quantities that are showing are really telling me. We here in the US are still on Imperial units. Is the extracted data that is in the text file in metric and meters? How can I set this to be coming out of the collated file in Imperial feet and inches? Thank you

CadImage Wall Framing Master Cut Lists

Posted on: 10 Jan, 2013

I have reviewed the online knowledge base to better understand how to develop a Master cut list for the wall frames for a project. Per the attached .png the cut list is supposed to go to a .txt file in the ArchiCAD Data folder. AC16 does not have a ArchiCAD Data folder. Am I missing something? Any assistance would be greatly appreciated. Thank you

How can I produce element quantities for Wall Frames tool?

Posted on: 08 Jun, 2012

What is the best way to produce quantities lists from ArchiCAD after I have generated the lists from document>component>schedule and list>basic The listsing is somehow messy and it don't start with 001, 002 and so on. It would be great to get this into excel or at least a file that is understandable.

Can wall framing produce cutting lists for the frames?

Posted on: 06 Jun, 2012

Does the Wall Frame tool create a list by board feet or by piece? Does it group the kind of lumber and then give a Linear Feet total? The documentation on the web does not seem to explain this in detail. Kind Regards,

I cant find the wall frame option under composite structures?

Posted on: 06 Jun, 2012

Hello! I have installed Archicad 15 trial and Cadimage tools trial. According to videos I should have option "wall frame" under the composite structures, but I do not have it! I have imported presets. With Regards
