I wish, that it would be possible to overlay 2D with 3D- Building materials or surface-settings instead of the hatches. It would it make much easier to create plans for selling purposes..

Do you mean like using image fills in elevations like you can in Plan view?

I wish that it would be possible as additional new feature to overlay section-views and elevation-views with the textures from the 3D-views to make selling-plans without an big effort of working-time.

the result should look similar to this with no effort - because in 3D all textures are normally set right.

It should also be possible to get smooth fake-shadows from elements in elevation fiews (no really 3D) to make it look smarter


here to see in a short Vid.

And you don't even need to buy them. The image previews work pretty well and have the shadow I think your looking for. ??

Thats nice - thanks - but you would have to work twice. In an Archicadfile all needet informations are there - it just would need a new overlay function for 2D to get the 3D-Textures instead of the hatches and the "fake-Shadow". Then it would be just a similar workflow for existing overlay-functions in Archicad.
