Hello everyone,

I keep getting into issues when I have to import a lot of varous 3d models into archicad. usually they are GSM models exported from rhinoceros. The thing is, they are sometimes rather complex polygon-wise. And when I import few of them, Archicad goes very slow. Especially in 2D plan views and sections. I think the majority of problems come from constantly redrawing and projecting the models into 2D. Turning on "NO CUT" in 2D repsresetnation doens't help. Is there a way to get around this. Could I somehow edit the GSM, or GDL of it to make the 2D projection be a simple square or circle? Just so that I know it's there, but that it looks real in 3D?
