Hello everyone Hi, the ARchiCAD file should only try and ask you for a password if you are trying to open its script. If you load it using ArchiCAD's library manager you should be able to place it. Thanks.

Liz, Modlar Administrator

Hi Smitha, to download files you will have to go to each product/bim object's page to do so. If there is a Downloads section on the right then you can download them, but not all products have BIM/CAD files so if there is no Downloads section on a product page unfortunately that one does not have any files attached to it. Let me know if I can...

Liz, Modlar Administrator

Hi Percy, not every product has BIM/CAD files, so first you have to make sure the product you are looking at has the right files available. The easiest way to find products with the right files is to do a search and then use the 'Formats' filter to tick the relevant file formats. You can search for a particular product or even do a blank sear...

Liz, Modlar Administrator

Hi Don, the first step is to look for products that have Vectorworks files. The easiest way to do this is to do a product search and then find the 'Formats' filter on the left hand side of the search page. If you click on Vectorworks this puts a filter on the search and you will only see products with the right files. Once you find a suitable...

Anthony, Architect

Armorers created blackened steel in the Renaissance with linseed oil. They heated the steel and applied the oil in much the same fashion described by "grahame-white" above. It probably is a little less toxic than old motor oil, and because it requires multiple applications, allows for a broad color range of "blackening" . 4 More Answers

Hi Linda, Yes of course, I seen a similar thing a few times and it looks great. Make sure to use a good waterproofing substrate or under coat behind it too. I agree if you already have the trim and it's stained, it would be a shame to paint over it, as new oak trim is very expensive. 1 More Answer
