First of all, many thanks to realthunder for providing the base object to play around and to yorik for accepting the tools into the BIM Workbench!
I'd like report into this topic the updates to my experiments with a kind of "Assembly" approach to BIM modelling, in the hope it can improve the current modelling experience. This also go into the direction to address last year discussion about separating semantics and representation of construction elements (profile extrusion vs wall) as Ifc try to.
Experimental Arch tools are available in the BIM workbench
, if you like to try them out and give me a feedback it would be really appreciated!
At the moment the available tools are:
- a Wall object that can be parametrically auto-joined with other walls as well as embed any kind of shape;
- an Opening object: that can represent a void or embed a window or a door;
- an ArchView object: that provides the infrastructure for 2d section drawing and it's based on current Arch.SectionPlane, Draft.WorkingPlaneProxy and Draft.Shape2dView objects.
I recorded some videos to showcase the prototypes, you can see them in this YouTube channel https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=P ... ture=share
The rest of the topic follow the many try and errors I encountered during the development process so it may be quite boring to read, but i leave to you the decision
