use3DHatching 6.1
Use Vectorial 3D Hatch patterns in Floor Plan view? This will apply the Vectorial 3D Hatch set for the element’s top side material.
offsetFromTop 5.1
Vertical distance between the reference level and the top of the slab (output only), see API_SlabReferencePlaneLocationID.
poly
Polygon of the slab.
hatchOrientation Featuring API 10
Orientation and distortion parameters of the cover fill.

 

Remarks

For slab related memo data see the ACAPI_Element_GetMemo function.

Featuring API 10  In ARCHICAD 10 the useLocalOrigo, locOrigo and fillAngle fields are placed into a separate structure (API_HatchOrientation).

Featuring API 17  In ARCHICAD 17 the type of the elements’ structure is defined with the new modelElemStructureType member. The related attribute indices are separated into buildingMaterial and composite. The composite index is a non-negative index.

Featuring API 17  In ARCHICAD 17 the the elements’ cut fill foreground and background pens inherit from the element structure, and can be overridden on the element level.

Featuring API 17  In ARCHICAD 17 the the elements’ surface materials inherit from the element structure, and can be overridden on the element level.
