I am looking for help with generating room separation lines from walls via script. We generally need to reduce the room area by a certain offset (say 4") from the finish surface of each wall. I think the script would need to do the following:
Extract a polygon of the room boundaries.
Extract the centroid of the room object.
Offset the room bounding polygon by a specified distance towards the centroid.
We basically need this because there is no way to add an offset to the room bounding property in the settings. It only goes by center and finish surface of the wall or structural core. On the particular project we are looking at we need to offset the room defining area to allow for wall trim and other elements that will not be counted in the net area.
Thank you for your help in advance.
