Prompts you in the command bar:
A label is created at the geometric center of the room.
Use the BimTag command to add the room label to a plan section.
|Pick a point||
Creates a BimRoom entity from an enclosed space. The boundary entities must be Bim classified. To divide a large space in different rooms, divide the space using linear entities, which you then classify as Walls.
The Room Bounding property of the enclosing entities must be ON.
The Center Line property controls the creation of the room boundary:
Pick a point inside the room or <select>: Pick a point inside the room area. Some info displays near the cursor:
Room found: Click to create the room.
Room not found:
Dynamic UCS defines the bottom plane of the room. In this plane, an area enclosed by room bounding entities is found and a room mark is placed. The room mark is a block consisting of a hatch and attributes for name, number and area.
A room stamp is created in the center of the room. You can control the layout of the room stamp by editing _RoomCallout.dwg in the Support\Bim\Sections subfolder of the Roamable Root folder. By default this is: C:\Users\<UserName>\AppData\Roaming\Bricsys\BricsCAD\Vxx\en_US\Support\Bim\Sections.
Select 3d solid, region, polyline, or boundary - Select an entity or click inside an enclosed area*.
* The Enable Boundary Detection option () of the SELECTIONMODES system variable must be selected.
A Room corresponds to an IfcSpace, and has all IFC properties, apart from the BIM properties.
Room properties can be edited in the Properties Panel:
or using the EAttEdit command:
Bimify - analyzes the model and runs automatic classification and spatial location assignment for the entire model. Creates new buildings and/or stories and rooms if necessary.
BimUpdateRoom - updates the geometry of a Room entity.
BimTag - creates associative tags in generated BIM section drawings for the corresponding building entities in a 3D BIM model.
