Room Schedule - Perimeter

Recommended Posts

Is there a way for the room finish schedule to display the perimeter of the room?  

Thanks!

Are you asking about a measurement or an image?

Measurement - I'd like to add a room schedule that shows interior area and perimeter length.  Like if you create a room polyline and open the object it shows "Length/ Perimeter"

Currently that isn't possible in a standard Room Schedule because the Rooms do not have an OIP (Object Information Panel) like most other objects.

 

However, the room attributes (including perimeter) are available for those objects that are contained in a room.  That fact allows for a custom Room Schedule to be created using macros.  Basically, you would place a very small cabinet or other object in each room and use it's attributes and schedule with custom fields to create the schedule. 

 

It's not a trivial job and it would probably be much easier for CA to simply add "Perimeter" as a column available to the Room Schedule - or - add an OIP for Rooms.

Thanks, Joe - I agree it would be easier for Chief to just add perimeter as a column haha.  

 

Appreciate the input!
