GDL needs a special library section only for algorithmic solutions ...

For example, there is an algorithm that a member have shared in this forum to create a discontinued line for 3D representation, and it's fantastic.

The GDL manual falls really short in two aspects

Forward & Backward GDL Migration, it just lacks meaningful content :?

The content of this post by Bond Bryan, lays out the foundation for choosing the best IFC 2*3 classification for the most common elements found in the different projects.

I believe that Graphisoft must create a special chapter, with similar content to help users choose the best subtype for the intended object.

In ArchiCAD standard electric MEP objects, you will need to set few standard parameters for:
  • Electric Current Types (AC/DC)
  • Electric Current Amperage
  • Electric Current Amperage Unit
  • Electric Current Frequency
  • Electric Current Frequency Unit

You Should Add this under "GDL Style Guide"

Local Coordinate "L" must return to the Global Coordinate "G" after its consumption by the general or subroutine script.

As an exception, it's admitted that you my opt out of this procedure if the coordinate transformation have taken place within a group, since that Local Coordinate "L" will return to it's previous location prior to Group definition
