Find those elements, wherever they are!

Ken

This has to be one of the simplest and easiest commands in ARCHICAD - but one that is often overlooked… yet it is one of my personal favorites!

 

Often when you select something using Find & Select or even Select All Walls, for example, it is difficult to know that you have the correct elements selected.  Well, with the help of this command, you can zoom directly to that selection and confirm it is what you think it is!  This is very useful, particularly in a busy model.

 

To use the command, select your elements then right click the mouse and choose Zoom to Selection as shown below:

 

 

Alternatively, you can find this command in View> Zoom> Zoom to Selection

"We have been using Archicad at BMA LLC for over 15 years and have been super satisfied with the software! The integration of Architecture and Engineering into a complete BIM model helps us from the creative prelims through the Construction Documents combining with all the disciplines. We seem to be modeling more and more and that has helped us with the overall design, details and documentation. The power of Archicad is the seamless process of Design Development, Client Interaction, Documenting Working Drawings, and Construction Understanding and Visualization - the complete package!"

Archicad has been the primary software in my architectural practice for over a decade. I am continuously impressed by the powerful solution Archicad offers for the design process from early design through construction. I love that I never need to “dumb-down” my virtual designs at any point along the way! The power of the virtual model is incredible through every stage of the project and it is especially helpful for many clients who otherwise struggle with visualization of their project.
