ArchiCAD 17 - New Feature: Smarter Attribute Management

Date: Friday, June 7, 2013

AC17_BOX_CAM1After migration to ArchiCAD 17, using file merge or working with hotlinks, you may need to get rid of the unneeded attributes (e.g. layers, line types, fill types). A new workflow for attribute management helps save you time and prevent costly mistakes, allowing you to safely delete and replace attributes:

  • Delete and Replace: When you delete an attribute, define which attribute should replace it throughout your model – in one step (available for Building Materials, Line Types, Fill Types, Composites, Profiles, Surfaces, Zone Categories)

  • Delete Layers and Move Elements: If you delete a layer, you now have the option to move its elements onto a different layer (instead of losing those elements forever)

  • Smooth migration of legacy projects to ArchiCAD 17 due to smart attribute management techniques
  • Number of attributes can be reduced intelligently - resulting in smaller file size and more manageable projects
