Subject 5 - Organic Shapes & Editing
This subject has 5 topics and runs for approximately 20 minutes.
5.1 - Morph Tool (4:30)
The morph tool provides for organic manipulation and 3D rotation of any extruded prism. In this video we'll experiment with its use where the slab and roof tools are unable to provide the creative organic freedom required.
5.2 - Shell Tool (5:36)
The shell tool allows for 3D rotation of an extruded composite, generated from a polyline or arc. In this video we'll use the shell tool to create a curved structure.
5.3 - Morph to Rotate (4:04)
Any 3D element can be converted into a morph, allowing it to be rotated freely around any axis. In this video we'll create a bowed truss using a slab, and then convert it into a morph, rotate it into the correct plane and multiply.
5.4 - Solid Element Operations (3:46)
There are multiple ways to connect and manipulate 3D elements in ArchiCAD. In this video we will use the connect and solid element operation functions to merge and crop 3D forms.
5.5 - Adjusting Building Height (2:28)
There are times where the building height needs to be adjusted to respond empathetically to the ground levels or in order to fit within the building height plane. In this video we will use the elevate tool and storey settings to provide a design resolution to fit within the building height plane.
