Overview: In this lesson, you will learn how to use the Interior option of BimSection in order to produce interior elevations.
Interior elevations show wall elevations and floor plans for individual rooms. They provide the details and dimensions of building elements. This can be particularly useful for interior designers or to make a layout of power sockets and light switches. In BricsCAD they can be automatically defined for a BIM room.
For more information about this command, please read BimSection.
