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

"As the complexity of our designs have increased, ARCHICAD has proven to be the tool that allows us to work through our designs in 3D, then allows us to provide documents that demonstrate our design intent."

"We use ARCHICAD exclusively in our office for all phases of design. We have developed a template over the last several years that saves us time on every project. We are also very pleased with the graphical output, using the software to produce project maps, construction documents, 3D details and photo real renderings that update automatically as the design evolves. Our clients are impressed with our ability to study various options on the fly using ARCHICAD."
