ArchiCAD, Tip of the Day

When you are using ArchiCAD to create renders for things like sun studies, it is important to ensure that you set the correct location for your project.
To do this go to View>3D View Options>3D Projection Settings… In the dialog box click on the More Sun button

In the dialog box that appears, you can choose either the city that you are in by clicking on the cities button and choosing a location form the list or you can go to the likes of Google Maps, find the exact location of your project and note down the latitude and longitude, then enter these values into the project location.
