Free GDL objects for using natural stone materials in your CAD application

The GDL objects are intended for use in design programs such as ArchiCad, in which they work as such. These objects can later be also used in AutoCad by means of Object Adapter.

A summary of the 9 update (11 April 2005):

  • A Finnish and an English version (ArchiCAD9)
  • A smaller library size 145MB -> 21MB
  • Environmental parameters have been added to the stone cladding and flat paving stone objects
  • Certain objects have been grouped together under one object
  • The materials are generated in the object code
  • The user is not obliged to have 225 different stone materials in their materials menu
  • Stone types and surface treatments have been separated into different menus, which are sorted based on the material
  • All dimensioning parameters can also be set in the base and the 3D window, not only in the object window
  • All dimensions based on modules -> when stretched, the dimensions change in accordance with the selected module dimension and the grid based on that, also possibility for free stretching
  • Stone types can be selected in the preview image with an enlarged preview image for the selected treatment
  • Also many additional improvements in the various objects
