Any good news about archicad connector development?
Yes! We have a former Graphisoft engineer helping us develop the connector further, hopefully we’ll have more updates soon!
A post was split to a new topic: Archicad - Include Quantities
Fantastic to hear that!
That is fantastic news!
A post was split to a new topic: How does receive works for walls/slabs etc?
5 posts were split to a new topic: Blender geometry not receiving in Archicad

Hello and Happy Holidays!
I have a question, is it now possible to have an Archicad - Speckle - Excel data flow? I have seen you are using Dynamo for Revit to work with the schedules but how about Archicad? Is there a way i can send Schedules via Speckle connector? If not, is this in the planning?
The Archicad Connector is still alpha and in this early stage of development our focus is on support of all element types for smooth model exchange to/from Revit and Rhino. Sending schedules is not possible but thank you for your feedback, we will definitely look at this later this year. I assume you would you like to get the quantities, areas, volumes… from the model. Is there anything else (specific object attributes, …) we should consider?
Thanks for considering this!
I have not thought of other attributes or properties yet but I will think of and get back,
It depends if you can have these extracted from the 3D model or directly from the Archicad Schedule sheets.
When I receive geometry into Archicad -it will always default to concrete
Even if I change the material in Archicad and send it again, when I receive it, it goes back to concrete
Is this how its working now or is there a way to change the materials?
Hey @Constantinesis ,
Are you receiving geometry from other software or Archicad geometry?
I am sending the geometry from Blender
I just tried again sending from Rhino and its the same concrete material.
Now i understand whats is it doing. It chooses the current material that is selected when you create new Morph object. The problem is that no matter if you change material of the imported object it will default to the new morph default.
Also, it cant update the existing object, it always creates new one.
The Archicad connector currently can only send the materials (surface in Archicad terminology), the receive is not implemented yet. However it is under development, in the upcoming releases it will be available!
Thanks the info!
Will you also enable the update feature like in Blender, instead of just create new object?
Yes, that’s definitely the plan! At the moment updating the elements works in some cases, e.g. it is mandatory to have element’s
applicationId property filled and sent from the originating application.
