Hi Marton,

I'm also having issues with the latest update downloaded from the server. It's listed as 4.1.2 (downloaded yesterday July 6th) but the add-on does not initialize (same as Rafal).

I can confirm that the older version you shared via Dropbox link does work (though it was launching Maxwell Studio 3.1 when loading? Uninstalled 3.1 fully to fix for now)

Also, getting this error when using "Check for updates" within the maxwell preferences within ArchiCAD 21.

Could you please download it again?

Not sure when it was updated on the server (the one with the build error was also version 4.1.2)

Or if it is ok, what is the exact problem? You get the GDL add-on error message or something else?

Hello, what is the behavior of the problem exactly?

(I guess you use the latest 4.1.3 version, right?)

As previously on mac, after installation only two files were installed (without extensiongdl). After other attempts I've collected all 3 files but AC when started shows warning:
2017-08-06_16-01-32.png
I've moved all three files to AC add-ons folder and everything works, some warning are shown in add-on manager but I got no time to reinstall it till deadline.

I have two more problems after upgrade:
1. MXS reference files. When placing a tree in project it is rotated 90 degrees so it is in different position as in rendering :shock: Really hard to work with it, the more so there is no possibility to use "show placeholder only" parameter as it was accessible in previous versions.
When using people meshes (for example doschdesign or meshes from sketchfab) they are rescaled dozen times in 2d and 3d window. In rendering works as expected.
2. I have crashes all time when using mxm definition for Surface (this function works on macos).

Hello Rafal,

Please make sure that only the MaxwellExtensionGDL_AC20.gdx amd MaxwellExtensionGDL_AC20.version files are in the Add-Ons folder. Copying all the files to add-ons folder probably doesn't cause problem but not sure.

1. Could you please send me the tree and people mxs files to test them?

2. So when you use mxm replacement file as the ARCHICAD material it causes error? Do you see some kind of crash pattern? What do you do when it crashes?

ad. 1.
It is impossible to contact you via PM. I want to send you link to dropbox with archived files (pln+mxs+bitmaps).
Some more observations:

After upgrade to newest 4.1.3 plugin version MXS reference object behave unexpectedly:
- it is rotated 90 degree in 3D window,
- or rescaled ~50 times,
- or got no 2D symbol and 3d preview.
In Fire and in final rendering everything work normally.

Hi Marton,

and what about the plugin version for osx, we have the same problem as windows users, resizing and rotating 3D?
I'm using the latest 4.1.3 plugin, dated 2017.07.27 available on the next limit download site.

Studio button is not missing but it is combined now with the network button (also pack and go).

Just click on network button and hold it, and Studio should come up.
