You mean library parts?

You should organize your downloaded ArchiCAD library parts in a folder. Then load that folder in Library manager as a part of the current library. Then you should be able to use them in your projects.

Are the objects that you downloaded ArchiCAD library parts or some other 3D format?

I downlard those model from http://www.hermanmiller.com/. It's DWG file. I try to open those file from the library manager, but it doesn't work. then my ex-teacher told me that I need to use GDL to change DWG file to DWG. But I still have proble to change file. Can you teach me how to do that step by step? :oops:

Ayway - go through the ArchiGuide, lots of How To articles are there.

Good luck!

The link you provide leaves you hanging in the process..

It states at the very end
Do try this at home, but be patient! If you are even more patient, read on to learn how to tweak the imported model!
Yet there is no additional link to continue on.

Ashley might find this information helpful.

The next topic describes how to tweak the imported models. I wrote both back in 6.5 times, and it was not updated since - not that it does not need updating ... :oops:
