Recently I’ve learned ArchiCAD, too, and one of the (different, but nice) concepts I had to learn the fact that ‘Views’ and the ‘Project’ are basically separate things.
With VA, you have to put a View (plan, section) somewhere into the project (= 3d-scene). However, the VA views become part of the scene in doing so, and can interfere with other views, or simply slow down editing.
(What I do is move the plan views somewhere to the side, or put it on layers and use layerstates, or both.)
So, I just tested if it is possible to invoke a vaPlanView command, and place the view directly into a layout - nope, not possible, the command gets cancelled.
However, wouldn’t this make sense?
It’s possible to draw normally in 2D in Rhino layouts anyway - why not be able to put a VA view into the layout 2D-context, too, so it does not get in the way in the 3D scene?
No idea if this would be technically feasible. I reckon not without ‘deeper’ changes, but for the sake of discussion…
Thanks for reading!
