Commonly viewed as Graphisoft's answer to SketchUp, the Morph Tool is a fairly new addition to ArchiCAD that can be used to create freeform elements. It is also a powerful early design tool for massing studies and for creating custom objects. Morph Tool users can mold their ideas for unique designs and complex forms via a combination of drawing and modeling techniques. Once the design is created, the Morph can be saved as an object. This tutorial shows how it works and how it can be used to create a custom shape in ArchiCAD.
