I need to convert a large number of 3D objects to .GSM Format. I have them in various formats but the only one that is suppored by ArchiCad is .STL. I have just started using ArchiCad so is there a way to make this process automatic (macro/script like technique). The ArchiCad versions that are available to me are 17 and 20. I prefer the older one so that the .GSM file will have more compatibility.
Thank you in advance :)

There is the modelport addon (3rd party software) that supports some other formats that might help, but a mass library import option is probably not available anywhere.

You wrote you had some various formats, but only STL is supported by ArchiCAD, which is why I mentioned modelport, as it supports some other formats.
