Hello! i have problem with saving project as .3ds file. IT takes long time then archicad freeze (not responding) and in the end it didn't save anything. :(
Dear juliavy,

This might be caused by a bug in ARCHICAD that the export process (to 3DS format) may fail when you have objects placed that use picture files (eg. Picture 21, Fireplace 21, etc.).

Please try deleting/hiding the above mentioned objects before the export, and if that doesn't help, try removing all objects (because there might be other objects using pictures like this).

I hope this helps,
