Propagates the detail to similar locations on selected solids.
Propagates a grid of the detail on selected solids:
BimPropagate - Maps details (solids, holes, finishing geometry, ...) related to selected base solids to similar base solids in the model and optionally outlines the detail in a grid.
BimPropagateCorner - Propagates details connected to three planar base solids (i.e., corners).
BimPropagateEdges - Propagates a detail along the edge of a planar solid; can be used to propagate railings, gutters, borders, wall caps, etc.
BimPropagateLinear - Propagates connections between linear elements (beams, columns, pipes, ducts and their connections to walls and slabs).
BimPropagatePlanar - Propagates connections between planar elements (walls/slabs/roofs).
