ArchiRotate

 

Did you ever need to freely rotate an ArchiCAD library part in 3D space?


Starting from version 16, ArchiSuite doesn't contain ArchiRotate, its best features are now collected into the new ArchiTools.
 

With the release of ArchiRotate, any ArchiCAD object can be rotated freely in 3D space - no GDL scripting required!
Now, all ArchiCAD users can easily position objects the way they want, quickly achieving their vision.
 
Save Rotatable Object
  • Select, in the ArchiCAD floor plan window, the library part you want to rotate.
  • Click on the Save Rotatable Object tool icon.
  • A standard Save dialog window appears, here type the new object name and choose the desired location than click on the Save button.
The resulting object can be rotated in the 3D space using ArchiRotate.
 
Rotation
  • With the Rotation tool you can rotate in the space all the elements generated with ArchiRotate.
  • The Rotation tool can be used both in the ArchiCAD Plan and in the 3D window.
  • You can rotate even more than 1 object at the same time.
  • If you are working in the 3D window, you can enable the graphic definition of the angle.
 
 

ArchiSuite System Requirements
The add-ons require the same configuration as your version of ArchiCAD.

 

ArchiCAD Version
ArchiSuite is compatible with ArchiCAD 17 and subsequent versions and it does not work with previous versions of ArchiCAD.
 
Installing the package
Installing ArchiSuitePlus has to happen in 2 steps:
  1. After downloading, click on the file and an Installer will put the Add-Ons in the correct folder of ArchiCAD
  2. After the Installer finished, it is necessary to prepare the Cigraph-Dongle. Put it into the computer and lunch ArchiCAD. From the menu: Design- Extradesign select “Cigraph Liccenze Activation” and follow the instructions.
 
Custom Work Environment
If you use personalized ArchiCAD custom work environments, the add-on menu might not appear automatically in the ArchiCAD Design menu.
To show the Work Environment Manager dialog, click on Options/Work Environment.
Use this dialog to configure your custom work environments to include the menu for the new add-on.
 
Managing the object library
We recommend not moving the libraries used by the add-on from their original location (in the same folder as the add-on).
Here they will be managed automatically by the add-on and you will not experience any difficulty loading them.
 

ArchiSuitePlus download must be related to the ArchiCAD version and Operative System in use.


To ease your life we developed a dedicated "Installer", which starts after downloading ArchiSuitePlus.
