ArchiCAD 18+ Combine Project

This function is similar to the Combine Project command. However, since ArchiCAD 18 exports scenes with a different structure, which must subsequently be optimized using this new command. Contrary to the previous version, the following now applies:


When a scene is opened that was exported from ArchiCAD 18 or earlier versions (or if the corresponding command was selected from the Pipeline menu), the following dialog window will appear:

The following options are available:


The scene will be combined (see Miscellaneous below for more information). If the Cmd/Ctrl key is pressed simultaneously, information about the combination process will be displayed in the Console.


The scene will be loaded with no additional optimization.

Don’t show this message again after this file has been saved.

If this option is enabled, this dialog window will not be displayed the next time this file is opened. For this option to take effect, the file must be saved after the option was enabled.

This dialog window will also not be displayed if the combination process was already previously successfully completed.
