This chapter covers all the 3D shape creation commands available in GDL, from the most basic ones to the generation of complex shapes from polylines.
Basic 3D commands with examples
3D version of planar shape commands
Complex 3D shapes using a polyline and a built-in rule: rotate, project or translate the given polyline.
Lights and pictures in GDL
Text type elements in 3D
Generate a point cloud in the 3D model
Cutting in 3D with planes and various custom shapes
GDL based 3D operations between solids represented by groups
Special commands to include inline binary objects into a GDL
The primitives of the 3D data structure: VERT, VECT, EDGE, PGON and BODY
Compatibility: NURBS related commands and functionalities introduced in ARCHICAD 20. The primitives of 3D data structure of NURBS bodies are: NURBSCURVE2D NURBSCURVE3D NURBSSURFACE NURBSVERT NURBSEDGE NURBSTRIM NURBSTRIMSINGULAR NURBSFACE NURBSLUMP NURBSBODY Solid NURBS bodies are represented by the boundary NURBS faces of the solid region(s), laminar surface NURBS bodies are represented…
