Hi there, I assume you mean for the ArchICAD file? It looks like he script is protected, however just make sure you load it properly then it'll be find. To do this, add the object file to the project via the Library manager, this will then add it to your library or you can try drag and dropping it onto your project floor plan. However if you...

How are IFC files actually used? Are they editable? I've been put in charge of BIM because I have 30 years CAD experience. But the people in charge don't really understand BIM and I'm not getting the training! Anyway, what i want to know is: How if an IFC file ACTUA... Read More
We are quite often getting IFC models from architects. To help us working with them we are asking for two models one is geometry other is spaces data. From this type of linked models we can create spaces and work on them. Anyway in my opinion native format of Revit files is the best. IFC is a last option I'll consider. 7 More Answers
Are floating homes considered to be boats when it pertains to various building codes?
Why are the styles of houseboats in Europe so much more well-designed?

Living walls or "green" exteriors are becoming more popular. Although they are tricky to design and maintain the plants. Have you seen or used any living walls systems you would recommend?
I'm looking at specifying Miele Appliances for the first time in a high residential project that I'm doing in the San Francisco Bay Area. I'd love to get feedback from other architects that have previously spec'd them, compared to other brands and whether your clien... Read More
I'm currently residing in Northern California and looking for opportunities preferably in the SF Bay Area.
These wall hangings are so stylish and blend perfectly with the overall look of the room. I think the room has to be big as these would not work well in small spaces.
A favourite of brutalism, these in-situ cast concrete walls always look impressive and weather ever so nicely with age. Their simple look is deceiving though, as they are often difficult to pour and have a smooth finish, due to air getting trapped during the pour.
These low profile flashing details, always look fantastic, although I'm always nervous they will move and let water in on windy days. Does any have any smart flashing details, that allow you to achieve a wind resistant yet low profile?
It seems every kitchen and bathroom supplier sells Delta Faucet's range? But where can I find the best cheapest price?
It depends how many you need for the product really. For a project or building, you're contractor would handle the bids from suppliers. However if you just want one or two for a home, Delta Faucet sell them directly on their website or lower and home depot are always safe bets.
Industrial and minimalist work well together. I like how the red brick wall has been paired with grey fittings.
Brick walls add an old world charm to the interiors making the room feel cozy. However, you want to make sure that there's no crumpling mortar due to the exposure to moisture and extreme temperatures over time. Clean the brick, repair the damaged areas on the wall, try colorwash. 3 More Answers
Metal claddings such as these are becoming a lot more popular, however often you see the cladding "warp" when exposed to the sun or on hot days. Often the metal is fixed to a timber sub straight, such as plywood. More modern buildings like this one, seem t... Read More
Why aren't there more designs for hurricane safe homes? I have a design that is hurricane retardant and safe.
I'm not sure what you mean by hurricane safe homes but I can assure you that there are lots of building codes in hurricane zones that builders must adhere to. Although, many buildings fall through the cracks, especially in a place like Miami, where I grew up. The vernacular for buildings in this region are concrete foundations, with concrete... 2 More Answers
You can load object into the project library and use it in the project normally without open it, and you change settings through the object interface settings as well. Hope this could help.
What is the first thing (facilities, activities, objects etc.) would you want to have or be provided?
Deeply saddened by the death of Zaha Hadid. She was a true inspiration for architects and women around the world. Her incredible work has won her many awards some of them being the Evelyn Grace Academy, Maxxi Museum and Heydar Aliyev Cultural Centre.
This lamp is perfect for my hotel exam!
This natural timber cladding looks fantastic and will weather very nicely. This project uses cedar which is then stained, but there are other many alternatives.
I downloaded the object for ArchiCAD and I need a detailed floor plan view, but it's just a rectangle.
The house looks great but what would be the cost of moving and installing it at a new location. Also, would the customized specifications increase the total cost?
I think current price estimates put the cost of the pod at between USD$16k-55k - a big range but I imagine it would depend on the number of basic pods, the amount of customization (I would imagine from a list of choices), and finishes you're looking for. It is not the type of home you could tow behind a truck, and assembly has to be by a prof... 2 More Answers
It looks like wood, but does anyone know more about the kind of wood that's being used here. Clearly, the purpose is to make the interiors comfortable while dressing up the exterior looks.
The wood curtain elements here are made from Iroko, sometimes called an African Teak. Like any teak, it is a hardwood that is rot-resistant. It is also waterproof and fairly UV resistant. It's qualities make it a good material for exteriors as well as marine use.

Not your normal ivy-covered facade. Sprawling flora creates an uninterrupted screen over the elevation of each building that is connected by three walkways. These living facades always present tricky challenges around waterproofing, due to the number of poles and p... Read More

These exposed timber roofs always look fantastic, however what is the best way to insulate them? As there is obviously not a lot of empty space in them and I worry the rooms would be freezing in winter.
It looks to me like there are two "slabs" of approximately 4" thick each. My guess is this might be some sort of structural insulated panel (SIP) one on top of the other. Perhaps the required insulation here is not that high. In addition, there might be a much thicker roof system st pack from the thin profile that is visible. T... 8 More Answers
