*I am trying to dimension the building exterior on the building, it is possible to dimension the footprint of the building but i am trying to achieve dimensions in a single string on each side of the building.
Is it possible?
Thanks in advance *
I think this graph works ok for a single dimension, but if you wanted to expand it you would need a ‘line’ for every ‘dimension’… so you need to start grouping sets of lines and walls according to the ones which need to be dimensioned (and ideally auto generating the lines). My graph does a bit of that, but you’d need to go further…
Thanks for the correspondence @Ewan_Opie wan_Opie
Previously I tried working on the one you recommended but it dint work well to my sample.
So tried building it with @Alban_de_Chasteigner’s Genius Loci package but failed with errors, I am still working on it.
The script doesn’t work on the sample floor plan as shown in your image. I also tried making simple with 2 parallel walls and a perpendicular reference line, it gives empty list as shown in the below image
Your List.FilterByBoolMask returns an empty list.
You don’t have a dimensionType called 2.5_con.
So look for another dimensionType or connect nothing to the optional DimensionType input of the Dimension.ByReference node.
But the dimensions go random to interior or exterior of the wall whereas I am trying to dimension to the exterior face of the building, I tried switching the “Wall layer reference” node but it still dimensions to random faces of the wall.
Kindly check the images for better explanation:
Yes, I also tired getting Interior Wall Face and orienting the wall in the right way but it doesn’t dimension to the exterior face of the wall.
That’s the reason I am puzzled because I worked it on other floor plans and everything looks good but it doesn’t work the way it should.
