    Using

    Plugin dialog window:

    1

    In the left part of the window there is a selection of the tab for dimensioning.

    The right part contains the settings for the selected tab.

    To start working with the plugin, click the Continue button. Then use the rectangle frame to select the elements that require dimensioning.

    FLOOR PLAN

    2

    The settings window has the following controls:

    • Grid dimensioning - if this option is enabled, it is possible to select the grids to which the dimension chains will be attached.
    • Openings dimensioning - if this option is enabled, it is possible to select the openings (windows, doors, etc.) to which the dimension chains will be attached.
    • Dimensioning chain offset - specify the offset of the dimension chain from the wall surface.
    • Handle walls with a thickness of ... mm - specifies a value to filter walls before processing. Allows to exclude finishing when finishing is performed by walls.

    For more flexible configuration, it is possible to exclude certain elements:

    • Exclude from the work walls in the name of the type which contains - excludes from processing the walls that contain in the type name the value written in the string. No case sensitive. You can specify multiple values separated by commas.
    • Exclude from the work of the wall in the material name of the layer “Structure” which contains - excludes from processing walls that contain in the material name of the layer "Structure" the value written in the string. No case sensitive. You can specify multiple values separated by commas.

    With help it is possible to get help for writing values to a string directly in the plugin window.

    Only orthogonally placed elements (arranged vertically or horizontally in the plan) that do not have arc segments in the geometry are processed.

    COLUMNS

    5

    Plugin performs the dimensioning of the columns.

    The settings window has the following controls:

    • Bind to nearest grids - if this option is enabled, it will be possible to select the grids and two additional dimensional chains will be placed to the nearest ones.
    • Dimension chain offset - defines the indentation of the dimension chain from the edge of the element.
    • Position of horizontal dimensions - specifies the placement of horizontal dimensions (Bottom, Top).
    • Position of vertical dimensions - defines the placement of vertical dimensions (Right, Left).
    • The grids must also be selected along with the columns if you want to bind the columns to them.
    • Only orthogonally placed (vertically or horizontally in plan) rectangular columns are processed.

    PILES

    8

    This part of the plugin makes the positioning dimensions of the piles with respect to the selected grids. This means that the dimensions will be placed from the middle of the pile to the nearest selected grids. The processing of piles is done in groups. Group of piles - piles that are located close to each other.

    The settings window has the following controls:

    • Add a pile to the group if the distance from the pile insertion point to the insertion point of ... in the group dots not exceed ... mm - defines the logic of forming a group of piles, depending on their position relative to each other.
    • Dimension chain offset - defines the indent of the dimension chain from the edge of the element.
    • Position of horizontal dimensions - defines the placement of horizontal dimensions (Bottom, Top).
    • Position of vertical dimensions - defines the placement of vertical dimensions (Right, Left).

    Only families of piles that fall into the categories "Structural Columns" and "Structural foundation" are processed.
