ARCHICAD Icon Style Guide is a handbook for both GRAPHISOFT’s Product Designers and ARCHICAD Add-On manufacturers to help maintain a consistent visual appearance for the icons in our products that we want to reserve in the future.
The purpose of this document is to list and detail all the rules that we have established for ARCHICAD 20’s new look and to cover how we work when we design icons for the new UI.
Since ARCHICAD 20 the preferred source image format of icon resources is SVG. The source SVG images are compiled by the GRAPHISOFT Resource Compiler to native resources.
For better understanding of the GRAPHISOFT Resource Compiler, see a Windows example here or a Macintosh example here.
The DG_Test example Add-On in API Development Kit contains each element type icons (small and large icons also). You can find the SVG source image files of those icons inside DG_Test/RFIX/Images folder.
So if you need an icon of any element type, don’t hesitate to get it from here!
To help you, I collected the SVG source images of the most important element icons here too:
