Showing Section Markers in Elevations in ARCHICAD

Earlier this week I published an article on BIM Engine that discussed the basics of Marker tools in ARCHICAD. In it I discuss the difference between a Source Marker and a Linked Marker; why certain Marker references are better than others; why the lesser Marker reference options exist; and a bunch of other things. It’s definitely worth a read.

The first person to comment mentioned the struggles of showing section markers in elevations. And just like happened with my comment-turned-video regarding footings and foundations in ARCHICAD, I realized I should just do a quick video.

Below is a video showing the fastest way to get your sections to show up in your elevations. Remember this technique works for Section, Elevation, Detail, and Worksheet Markers. And it you can place any of these Markers in any type of graphic Viewpoint (plan, section, elevation, 3D document, etc.). Once you have this trick down, use it to fill your drawings with all the markers you need.

Again, I highly recommend reading the accompanying blog post: Introduction to ARCHICAD Markers. I’m assuming anyone who is watching this video knows the difference between a Source Marker and a Linked Marker, and the different types of Marker references.
