ArchiCAD library part is the basic item through which the CAD software ArchiCAD handles external dynamic content elements which are grouped into libraries. A library part is a file in a library.

A library part can be any file used by ArchiCAD for the following purposes:

  • a file with GSM extension containing a model written in GDL or using 2D- or 3D binaries
  • a background image for rendering
  • an image for texture mapping for 3D and rendering
  • a text file for listing
  • a LightWorks material file (LWI)
  • a DXF file
  • a file of any type, which is registered by ArchiCAD or by an add-on as library part through Library Manager

Usually a library part refers to an object scripted in GDL.
