- Data | Attach | Attach Compostition
Prompts you in the command bar:
Enter composition name or [Dialog/Entity] <Dialog>: (Press Enter or select an option.)
The Compostions dialog box displays.
Select a composition in the In Project or the In Library list:
Double click the composition or click the Select button on the Compostions dialog box.
Select entities to attach composition: (Select solids.)
Entities in set: 3
Select entities to attach composition: (Select more solids or press Enter.)
If a single ply composition with a variable thickness is selected then the selected composition is attached to the selected solid(s),
else the reference face* of the selected solids highlights.
A darker volume indicates the volume and position of the solid after attaching the composition.
Press Enter to accept the current reference face(s) and attach the multiply composition or choose a reference option.
* Reference face: defines the position of the exterior ply of multiply compositions.
Opens the Compositions dialog box.
Click the type list button to select a composition type:
The composition type is defined by the Type property of the composition. Although compositions are grouped into Wall , Slab , Roof and Generic compositions, any type of composition can be attached to any dwg entity, including 2D entities.
Do one of the following:
Applies the composition of an existing solid.
Select entities to attach composition - (Select a solid.)
Choose reference face [Accept] - (Press Enter to accept the current reference face or choose a reference option.)
Allows to control the reference face when attaching a multiply composition or a single ply composition with a fixed thickness.
Drag a composition from the Compositions panel onto a selection of solids.
Bimflip - Flips the starting face from which the layers of a composition are set out.
BimProjectInfo - Opens the BIM Project Info dialog box.
BimUpdateThickness - Re-applies the overall thickness of a composition to the solid.
BimSetReferenceFace - Defines a reference and an opposing face to control the ply layout of a composition.
BLCompositions - Opens the compositions library in the current project and the referenced library.
BLMaterials - Opens the physical materials library in the current project and the referenced library.
BimClassify - Classifies an entity as a Building Element and get a name and an internal GUID (= globally unique identifier).
LevelOfDetail - Changes the visibility of a solid's the composition in your model.
