v## [23.02.66] – 2021-12-20

### Added

  • New LAND4 menu, under the LANDSurface Settings/Classification and Properties – introducing two new properties: Horizontal Projected Area and Analytic Surface. Both can be added to the Schedules calculation.
  • Horizontal Projected Area and Analytic Surface parameters (see above) will update also for older projects.

### Improved

  • Installation process – old files are now deleted automatically from the installation folder, and a message will let the user know if ARCHICAD is open during the installation process.
  • The LAYER in the LAND4 Object Settings is now linked to the LAYER set in the Categories Settings.
  • Spot Level copy/pasted from another project, is now placed in the Category selected in the pick box.

 

### Fixed

  • Bug causing crash when copy/pasting a Ridge Line created using the Create SL on a Slope function.
  • Bug causing problems with creation of Ridge Lines on other stories than Ground Floor.
  • Bug creating Spot Level duplicates when Ridge Line/Contour Line was copy/pasted.
  • Bug causing problems with deletion of Spot Level linked to a Ridge Line.
  • Pipette/Syringe layer bug. Using these tools will now follow the LAYER of the objects involved in the process.
  • Mac Version, only: Bug causing crash when Ridge Line connected to a LANDSurface was edited

 

## [23.02.61] – 2021-11-08

### Improved

  • Copy to Category function.
  • Ridge Slope Function.

 

### Fixed

### Improved

  • Ridge Slope Function: Projection of straight segment parent Ridge Line.

### Fixed

  • Fill Tool bug causing problems with area text for Fills representing LANDSurfaces.
  • Dependent Spot Levels text bug showing 0.00 in height when dependent. Caused by Ground Floor elevation set to another level than 0.
  • Copy to Category function bug causing elements copied from one Category to another to interfere with the old Category when used to create a surface.

  • Auto-scan of Spot Levels when opening and migrating a project.
  • Warning message when trying to delete or modify an interpolated Spot Level without breaking depencencies.

 

### Improved

  • Import/Export function: Data structure more flexible.
  • Ridge Line function when working with Ridges and Splines in an open/closed circuit. 
  • Category Import/Delete function – warning message added.
  • Cpy to Category function.

 

### Fixed

  • Thickness parameter bug in LANDSurface Default settings.
  • Spot Level text bug.

## [23.02.49] – 2021-07-08

 

### Added

  • Imperial Units.
  • Point Slope can be created to LANDSurface. New interpolation: Spot Level meets existing LANDSurface based on parent Spot Level and given a Fall.
  • Spot Level text can be placed freely.
  • Fall can be shown as Ratio as well as Percent and Permille.
  • Ridgelines
    • Ridgelines can now be curved and created from both Polylines and Splines.
    • New Spot Levels can be added to Ridgelines.
    • Ridge Slope can be created.
    • Contour Lines can be drawn and used for input to LANDSurface.
    • Spot Levels can be created on Polyline or Spline slope.
  • LANDSurface
    • LANDSurface can now have curved edges and organically shaped holes.
    • LANDSurface can have a thickness or body.
    • Easy selection of points in LANDSurface based on Category and points which will influence on the surface.
