Core-based Wall Reference Line

To support more consistent element positioning and intersection logic, Wall Reference Line options have been re-named and expanded in ArchiCAD 17. Users now have the option to assign the reference plane not just to either side of the wall, but also to either side of the wall’s core skin.
This way, when the user edits the wall (e.g. adds skins or changes the thickness), the wall core connections remain constant and the elements’ positions relative to their reference line remain unchanged.
