ArchiCAD 17 - New Feature: More Intuitive Element Creation in 3D Window

Date: Monday, May 27, 2013

AC17_BOX_CAM1In the 3D window, element input takes place at the elevation at which you click; the input plane will snap to the corresponding story level in space. (The “current story” option for defining element location in 3D is eliminated.)

In the 3D window and Section, use graphic feedback and snap to story level when editing element elevation.
