In this ArchiCAD training we look at the fascinating topic of Solid Element Operations (also known as SEO). Originally introduced in ArchiCAD 8, it has not changed much because it is so powerful and versatile.
In ArchiCAD 15, a new feature, the Connection grip and popup menu, simplifies management of the connection relationships between elements. This was added as part of the development of the new Shell tool and multi-level Roof and their associated Connect command.
This 33 minute lesson shows how to work with SEO in ArchiCAD 13 (which applies to versions 8 and above) and then a few of the differences are shown that relate to ArchiCAD 15 and above.
