No, it's not
And the answer is: not officially, but you can experiment with it by installing the PythonSnippets add-on.
We'll provide the version which works with the final build, and we may update it as well as time passes.
As a early user of the Python Experiment, I recognize the importance of this tool in Archicad. But frankly I don’t like the direction its development is seeming to take now.
It seems to have fallen into the same odd category of: the list schedules, wall framing and other goodies that were never fully developed to their full potential. Never developed until more usage was shown and not used because of limited development. Basically the “the chicken or the egg”.
The causal user may not appreciate the power and productivity of the Archicad C++ API. It is, however, the most complex and convoluted API that I have ever seen.
The Python experiment solves those problems-times ten. It's obvious the developers recognized previous problem areas and have smartly alleviated the “road blocks” through the clever use of the Python Dictionaries. This puts the whole potential of the API features within the understanding and capability of the typical office director or even the single owner as a logical tool. IOW, It greatly expands the capability of Archicad for the Architect’s office and allows us to offer more services to our clients with little extra effort.
The knowledgeable developers of Archicad seem to have set a course of developing a tool of maximum convenience while maintaining access to most of the programs capability.
Without user support, it is also obvious that it may be years before its full potential could be realized to any useful value , if ever– again the “ Chicken/Egg scenario”. Leaving another great idea to die in Archicad.
IMNOHO, if you want to see this feature developed, as it should be, a massive show of user support is needed now. We must advise Graphisoft’s management of OUR support. I‘m suggesting that more than one/two users interest need be shown.
You can best show support by adding your comments here or by directly communicating your thoughts to your local supplier.
A sub-topic here, whereby, users could comment, ask questions, demonstrate applications and trade snippets would be most helpful.
