IFC Spaces

There is no need to create IFC parameters before running the tool. When running the tool, the parameters will be automatically created if they didn’t exist before.

Changes are available both in 2019.1.8 and 2020.1.2 if not otherwise stated in headlines.

3D Zone

We have made significant improvements to performance and usability:

  • Much faster to select 3D Zones in Filter Elements and Write Parameters tools
  • Added a progress bar with Cancel option that is visible on all tools where you select a 3D Zone in Filter Elements and Write Parameters tools
  • Filter Elements, Write Parameters and Write All tools now give same result for selected 3D Zone
  • Write Parameters start much faster since no 3D Zone is selected at startup. It is also much faster to select 3D Zone in the tool
  • Create 3D Zones from Floors. The tool now supports creating 3D Zones from Scope Boxes, Filled Regions and Floors; the option to create from Lines are removed.
  • Increased stability with 3D Zones containing circle and ellipse elements
  • Improved input validation to avoid creating improper 3D Zones

Family Browser

You can now update the project with a newer version of a family on disk using the “Load Family” option from the right click menu.

Filter Elements

We have made improvements regarding the default settings when starting the tool. Now “Elements in View” is default and no Categories are selected when starting the tool. The Settings combo box show <Select setting>. Either configure what to filter or:

  • Select <In Session> setting to get the setting you had last time you used Filter Elements and pressed Close button
  • Select any of the <Recent Filter X> settings that are automatically saved when clicking on Select Elements button (the last five settings are saved)
  • Select any of the named settings that has been created in the project
  • Select <Select Setting> to “clear” the dialog box and get back to initial state

We have also made the following improvements:

  • You can resize the dialog box again
  • Improved performance when selecting 3D Zones (see also 3D Zone above)

Transfer Calculated Values

We have added the ability to copy a Formula or Combined parameter from a Schedule to a parameter on the element with same Type. A calculated Area can for example be calculated to any project parameter of type Area or Text. Before was only Text parameters supported.

Type Symbols

We have made several changes to improve the tool:

  • It is possible to create multiple legend views with different categories for the same view
  • You can enter a prefix for the names on the legend views that are being created
  • You can see what views or sheets that was pre-selected and that you will create legend views for
  • You can include a Count column that display the number of instances of the type in the view/sheet

Naviate update type symbols

  • The length of the columns is automatically adjusted to the longest text.
  • You can update a legend view by selecting it and running the feature again; the tool remembers the settings used to create it. Additional parameters can be added or removed
