Join Thiago Santos Mundim for an in-depth discussion in this video Using Hotlink modules, part of ArchiCAD: Management & Collaboration.
- [Voiceover] This will be a future hotel floor plan…where I have the vertical circulation,…the staircases, and the lift,…and I will eventually add for each gap in between the grid…one standard hotel bedroom.…So here I will have more or less 38 apartments,…and this will happen on 20 stories.…So when we have repetitive elements like this,…the best thing to do is to use hotlink modules,…so let's see how that works.…
I have an other file called hotlink Module…where I have already done my hotel,…including elements such as the curtain, wall, slabs,…and the partition wall here.…Now, going back to our, let's call it master file,…the master hotel file,…I'm gonna go to File, External Content,…and then Place Hotlink Module.…We can choose a layer for the hotlink…and here a master ID, where I'm gonna call it standard room.…
You can give any master ID you want.…Orientation, let's keep it zero for now.…Here we can choose what we want to do with elements…like walls and columns that are attached…from one story to the next story on the height.…
