            • ArchiCAD 19 Support - please!!

              ArchiCad is now on version 19. The last version of export module supported by Orthograph appears to be v 17. If the export module were to be updated, and I was confident of Orthograph committing to update with each ArchiCad release, I would certainly buy the export add-on.

                      • Emergency Evac maps

                        Symbols showing exit signs, etc for Evacuation Maps.
                        Heavily populated buildings such as schools, manufacturing facilities, office buildings and stores should and oftentimes are required to have an Emergency Preparedness Plan to be prepared for natural or man made disasters. A valuable component to any plan is the Emergency Evacuation Map that shows the location of safety equipment and exit routes. An accurate floor plan is essential to the creation of the EEM.

                            OrthoGraph exists now in 6 languages ( English, German, French, Italian, Portugues and Hungarian). We would like to localize the app for more languages so in the future we might will create a Greek version as well.

                          • Why didnt you design the app to function with all versions of the iPad?

                            I can not down load for my version of the iPad I own. In order to use your product I would need to purchase a new iPad.

                            Please put verbiage on your site and in the App Store for what version iPads the app is comparable with.

                              The App Store page for OrthoGraph I does contain a list of devices that the app is compatible with. There is a compatibility entry in the information section both on the iPad and web versions of the App Store.

                              Are you having problems running OrthoGraph on any of the device listed in that compatibility list?

                              • Demo projects in various export formats

                                Here is a sample .dxf export file from OrthoGraph Architect 3D. OrthoGraph although works in 3D and creates its building model in 3D the DXF export format currently is only a 2D file. If you need 3D CAD output from the App then either created IFC files or use the OrthoGraph ArchiCAD Import module to import OrthoGraph's native file format.

                                  Have the export be read by Chief Architect. This would increase your sales of your product. http://www.chiefarchitect.com/

                                    Can you create new custom element/icons to add to the app? If not, is there a more extensive library of elements somewhere?

                                        • Various industry standard export formats

                                          Hi,
                                          I find your app as perfect mobile input companion for different CAD applications.
                                          I guess you could gain more users if you would provide more industry standard export formats besides dxf and Archicad: I am looking forward to export to Vectorworks (.vwx).
                                          Sure, one could use dxf but it is seldom smooth and painless.

                                          Thanks
                                          Robert
