Graphisoft has set up the ArchiCAD-Talk GDL Depository as a resource for free GDL objects for ArchiCAD users. These include collections that were formerly sold as commercial products, manufacturer libraries, as well as individual objects contributed by Graphisoft as well as users.

http://archicad-talk.graphisoft.com/object_deposit…

You can browse for objects by category, and download them one at a time.

As a convenience, we have made our favorite objects from their collections available as a single file download here.

I realize your Free Library tools were created by others and perhaps "off-subject"... but if possible could you say a little about how to use some of them?

I'm referring to:

Gradient Marker (?)

Level Object (?) (I'd like to put a dynamic elevation marker on the top of a [yard] wall in Plan view, but 'gravity' for the Level Dimension Tool doesn't work for walls .)

Logolink(?)
Parapicture(?)
Stud(?)
Cutline (can a fill be automatically trimmed around the cutline?)
Grid_symbol (?)

Much obliged,

Michael -

I'm afraid I haven't had a look at these objects - we just thought there were some useful items and collected them for ease of installation.

I remember Parapicture from years ago - I believe it is somewhat similar to the Picture object in the current U.S. library - it shows an image file on a rectangle to be used as a picture on the wall, a carpet on the floor, etc. I don't know what the difference is between it and the one in the U.S. library - perhaps some additional parameter options.

I wish I could be more help. Perhaps Scott can fill in something here, since he may have used some of these in practice.

Lilian -

The link was apparently broken when our website was moved. I have fixed it above, and repeat it here for your convenience:

http://www.bobrow.com/templatedownload/FREE_LIBRARY_PARTS_1.1.zip

I have not looked at this file for a very long time - use and enjoy if you find it useful - but I can't really answer questions about it.

See my note on your other post about level dimensions - you don't need a special library object for this.
