  1. Sketch Effect

    I believe that the sketch effect isn't what it should be. ArchiCAD has a MUCH more effective and aesthetically pleasing quality to their final sketch it. The 'jitter' control is not pleasing to the eye and actually makes the drawing look messy. This drastically needs to be improved if we are to continue using it to present architectural drawings and not go back to Sketchup or Mcolor. Thank you

        • SNAP FUNCTION ON PANEL FOOTPRINTS

          Having footprints interlock automatically like the parts do in real life (an example would be how terminal blocks fit together in real life) without having to measure and offset the parts or using the OSNAP command.

          • Addinal Fastener sets in Specs and Catalogs and make them available in creation similar to Boltset

            When using bolt sets, options were not available for non standard bolt sets used in knife gates as an example. A normal knife gate uses a mix of studs and bolts or threaded rods with certain number of nuts. Additional fasteners selections for Hex Nut, Studs, and Threaded Rods in Piping Connection Settings - Simple Joint - Fasteners selection will help calling out the correct number of components in BOM.

              • Allow P&ID symbols to connect without a line in between

                We have the need to place symbols such as a pump symbol, vibration isolator fitting, and a reducer, fitting to fitting without a sline in between them. We need this to save space and there also will not be any pipe in between

                          • View Range

                            View range for many users is difficult to understand, especially the logic. I have thought that when using view range, the dialogue pop up box for indputting data, is replaced by a pop up section sketch where you can 'drag' a window line to the constraints as wanted. Basically from indputting values to showing where the constraints are.
