We are now on version 23 of ArchiCAD and still don't have tools to fully design a site. No, I am not referring to the Mesh Tool. Yes you can model terrain with it, but that is NOT a site design tool.

EVERY new building in the US, and dare I say everywhere else, has site design parameters and need to studied and designed in the BIM model, the earth is not flat! Meaning, we need to be able to design roads, sidewalks, curbs, driveway cuts, ADA ramps and the like in 3D that follow the site contours or go above or below them. How has Graphisoft gone so long without offering these tools to Architects?!?

I suspect there are some creative people here that can achieve these tasks, but not easily or fast.

Graphisoft - We need site design tools, are you ever going to develop them?!?!?

That is the Request ID relating to this topic.

Thank you Ghaleb (and Graphisoft) for taking an interest in our wishes.
I see you have responded to quite a few just recently (you have a lot of old wishes to go through as well. :wink: ).

This is exactly what the users have always been wanting.

So to all users,
Please be sure to make your wishes as clear and concise as possible.
Don't forget to add a poll for voting.
And if you have further related wishes, please create a new separate wish (topic).

Also, just discussed at a user group meeting this morning, it is a good idea to send any wishes to your local Graphisoft technical support and note it as a request or wish.
They can then forward the idea on to HQ where they actually do keep track of how many requests there has been.
The more a request is logged through official channels, the more likely it is to get a response.
This doesn't mean it will get done, just that it will be evaluated to see if it is worth solving.


Thanks again Ghaleb, and let's hope this interest in the wishes continues.

Barry.

I think with the right survey info, sites of a manageable size (i'm talking about a site for one single building) can be modelled quite precisely with archicad tools, albeit not automatically and with lots of oportunities for errors.

for more robust tools we don't need to look that far either. just take a look at what vectorworks can do in this regard; i havent used it, but Youtube videos about this software's site modeling tools look amazing.

Well, in the Archicad 24 presentation, a question was asked about this and the answer was "there you have vectorworks for site tools" :evil: A very disappointing answer....
