Week #9 – ArchiCAD’s Structure: The Navigator, Part 1 (Continued)
9-1. Layer Management

ArchiCAD Training (Best Practices Lesson 9-1)

This lesson discusses various issues and challenges in layer management. What happens when elements are placed on the wrong layer? They either show up on one or more drawings that they should not be seen, or they are missing from drawing(s) where they need to be shown, or both.

Moving elements from one layer to another may be done easily and efficiently with the techniques shown in this video.

Please post your comments and questions below.

      John –

      There is a video for week 9.1. I am seeing it on the page just fine. There may be two reasons you are not seeing it:

      1) You will not see it if you are not logged in to the website properly. In that case, you will see a message saying that the videos are for members only in the space normally reserved for the video.

      2) There may be (have been) a temporary interruption of internet service, and the appearance of the video may have “timed out”. Try it again later, or perhaps close your browser then reopen it and log back in to the website, and it should be there for you.

        UPDATE for readers of these comments:
        John had registered for the course with an installment plan, and his final payment went through OK a few days ago but the membership records had not been updated. I have manually corrected this error, and he now has full, permanent access to the course website.

    Where are the lessons after Week 9?

      John –
      As I have explained in numerous emails to course members, I have only completed through week #9 at this point. I am in the process of finishing up the QuickStart Course (hopefully within the next week or 10 days) then I will resume production on the main Best Practices Course lessons. My plan is to finish all of them up by the one year anniversary of the course in November.

    Dear Eric,
    For some reason, I’m not able to save parts 1 and 2 of week 9.
    Thanks,

      I tried it, and it worked for me just fine. You may need to right-click on the download link and choose Save Link As or Save Target As, rather than just clicking the button or link. It’s also possible there was a temporary problem – please try it again.

    Hi Eric,

    This is so useful when migrating a project.
