Yes - that is the intended behavior. If the plugin cannot find a texturemap or proxy asset, it will ask you to locate it.
"Copy", then select all the other host Objects you want to copy the new proxy to and click Materials tab->"Paste".
That's for this additional info - you are right - this is not working correctly. I will fix this.Even if I locate it, it will keep asking every time I open the project. It is like it does not save the new address and keeps the initial one. Even without exiting archicad but just closing the plugin and reopening it, the updated address is lost and octane keeps poping up the same message. The only solution is to create the initial address and put there the obj file.
But this should't be the case.
You can do this by moving the proxy host. The proxy is centered on the proxy host position. The next release will update a proxies position after you move the proxy host if you click the Reload button.I would like to ask you how possible is to add a function that gives the option to the proxies to move
in the three axes just like they are rotated.
In most of the cases we have to adjust the obj file in 3dmax to be able to import correctly.
In addition to the great comment provided by Dan - adding a translation slider to the Proxy window is not nearly as straightforward as the rotation and scale sliders, for a couple of reasons which I won't bore you with. But with the next release, you can either change the translation of the proxy host, or tweak the OBJ, ORBX or OCS file and click Reload. So there are two methods to translate proxies.It would have been more productive if the movement could be performed inside the plugin instead of moving the host, just like the rotation.
My workflow, and probably the archicad workflow of most architects, would be be improved if we use original objects as host instead of a cylinder.
