ARCH - Working inside of a building

How does one work inside of a building using the ARCH workbench. Attached is a copy of a model that Yorick built for one of the ARCH tutorials. I was able to hide the roof slab, roof beam array, and the horizontal section plane so I could access the floor slab. The question is "How do I access the i...

Re: Problems with Draw Style on Arcs

Indeed, the problem is with my platform. I tested the behavior on a Windows box and a different Ubuntu box and found that the Draw Style worked correctly. I tried updating the open-source drivers but the problem persisted which is not surprising given that the Mobo/Processor pair dates back to 2011....

Problems with Draw Style on Arcs

I have a strange problem. I have a model, called house.fcstd, that contains two arcs in addition to other geometry. The arcs disappear when I set the Draw Style Property to anything other than "Solid". In the same model, I created a Line object and had no problems setting the Draw Style property to ...

Re: Units passed to Draft.makeRectangle

So the underlying unit of measure is millimeters. Which class/module handles the conversion between units. I would like to re-use the unit conversion code instead of re-inventing the wheel. I am writing some python scripts to help me design a house using US building technology and as a result I have...

Units passed to Draft.makeRectangle

I have a question regarding units. I created a new document and set the "units" preference to "US customary (in/lb). I then switched to the ARCH workbench and then created a rectangle. I set the length to 30 ft and the height to 20 ft. In the python console following python code sequence appeared in...

Window not attached to wall

I'm having problems with ARCH Window objects that don't seem to be attached to Arch Wall objects. Attached in a simple model containing a wall with two windows (actually they are to be doors). The object identified as Window001 in the model tree does not seem to move when I change the Length attribu...

Re: Wierd Behavior Making Walls from Sketch

Are the above unexpected behaviors bugs or pilot error?

Re: Wierd Behavior Making Walls from Sketch

I ran into more unexpected behavior. I created a sketch having to l-shaped lines. The intent is to create a rectangular structure where two adjacent walls would also be retaining walls. Hence, these two walls would have to be thicker than the other two walls. So I created these two l-shaped lines us...

Re: Changing wall dimensions

I figured out how to do it when using a rectangle as the base geometry. After I made the wall using a rectangle as a base, I toggled the visibility of the rectangle and was then able to get to the underlying rectangle and change its dimensions which in turn changed the dimensions of the wall. I'm us...
