ArchiCAD 15 New Features – Shells
Create basic shapes: cone, pyramid, sphere, ellipsoid
This video shows how to create various basic shapes using the Shell Tool.
The first one is a Cone, for which we need to use the Revolved geometry method. We draw a slanted line for the Profile Polygon, draw a vertical Revolution Axis from its top point and set 360 degrees for Revolution Angle.
Then in 3D we can use the Free Rotate command to rotate it into an upright position.
