Delve into the complexities of Archicad’s Morph, Mesh and Object Tools to push the limits of your BIM projects.
In this online training session, we will explore the challenging concepts of Archicad, including a variety of uses for the Morph, and ways to ground your model with the use of the Mesh, or a combination of both. We will be using these tools to create more intricate 3D shapes, work with resulting objects, and create accurate site terrain for clean 2D drawings and sharp visual imagery.
We’ll also look at a variety of uses for the Morph tool, teach you how to work with the resulting objects, and show you how to use the Mesh tool to create accurate site terrain for clean 2D drawings and super sharp visual imagery.
- What is a Morph, and how is it used?
- Create a new Morph and simple Push/Pull
- Make Morphs in Plan/Section/Elevation or 3D as Line, Plane or Solid
- 3D Editing Plane use with the Morph
- Drawing on the Morph Planes
- Tube the Morph shape along a path and revolving curved shapes
- Softening the Morph corners and edges
- Modifying the Surfaces/Textures of the planes
- Making a raised panel and creating trim details
- Other Morph editing options with the Pet Palette
- Merging Morph pieces and Solid Element Operations
- Converting items to a Morph and saving Morphs as Objects
- Using the Morph for site features.
