    Hi,
    Next task is to create boilers :). I’ve got lots of boilers in Revit format that I want to convert to ArchiCAD. I can use the RFA to GDL using the addon and it’s kind of ok. However the boiler families have many variations and I can save out all the nested families and use them as macros when dreating my objects in ArchiCAD. I did a test with the simplest part as a macro and in the object I get lots of unnecessary 3D hotspots which I don’t know how to hide. The small image on the right is the macro and the image to the left is the object.
    🙂 Mats

    If they are not scripted hotspots, then in the Details section > Compatibility Options, there is an option for showing hotspots on the bounding box.
    If that is already turned off (or makes no difference) you may have to script one hotspot (HOTSPOT 0,0,0) as it should then only show that one scripted hotspot.

      Hi Barry,
      Thanks for a useful tip!
      However the hotspots was ok after closing and the opening AC again. Beats me why.
