Introduction to core-based wall reference lines

This clip provides a brief introduction to core-based wall reference lines. To support more consistent element positioning and intersection logic, Wall Reference Line options have been renamed and expanded starting with ArchiCAD 17.
Previously three available construction methods were available for walls- these used the Left, Right and Center reference lines to create walls. These actually referred to the side of the Reference Line the body of the Wall was generated on.
