Pity. As a beginner it appears that all the work to create morph masses and objects at the beginning of a design project need to be reworked and rebuilt with building elements, walls, roofs etc. Seems very inefficient.
I can import a sketch-up model that is quicker and easier to build so I am wondering why the morph tools got added to Archicad? I hope I am missing something here.

Stewart my experience is that eventually you will be able to model faster in AC than you ever did in SketchUp with all the other benefits that AC has to offer. One of the benefits of having the Morph tool is having the ability to use SKP workflows within AC.

I join this wish and I'm 100% agree with you ejrolon, I used Sketchup before I knew Archicad, but as soon as as Knew AC and get used to it a little I realize the advantage I have and stop using sketchup. Now with the morph tool Archicad is even better, but still this wish and a few more things that could be added to the morph tool (like sweep along a path a profile) would make the morph a much better tool.

I also think this feature would be much needed. At this moment i think Revit is the only software capable of converting any 3d face into walls. Working with massing at the beginning is essential. Right now the workflow is reversed since you can only convert walls into morph, which is usefull as a design refinement or detailing but not for initial concept. Is it so difficult to rethink the construction elements coding? Right now i guess all of them are based on simple vertical extrusions. Maybe they can just write a new code for the Wall from Morph face, don`t need to re-do whats already done. The resulting wall from morph face does`nt need to be as flexibile as the simple wall but it should be able to receive windows, and to intersect properly with other walls.

Please Archicad company the Morph tool great, but using much easier so the model can be converted to morph in ArchiCAD, but if the morph can be converted to walls/slabs/roofs/curtain walls .. will be the superior program. I am one of the people admire Archicad and I learned both ArchiCAD and Revit to know which is easier and high efficiency, the problem is Revit can import (STL) format and considered as massing so can be modified to walls. so Organic forums can be walls and can open doors and windows,, if you know what I mean it will the revolution in Archicad if it used .. please reconsider that. Imagine after import any complex forum from sketch up or Rhino then convert to Morph then from Morph change to walls/slabs/roofs/curtain walls ... I really want Archicad to be the Top program.
