Space Planning for commercial


Recommended Posts

Does anybody know if the space planning tool can be customized for commercial use? Can the build a house tool be customized for commercial settings?

I don't think the Space Planning Assistant will be very helpful but you can always just place and arrange the types of rooms that you like.  Unfortunately, there are not any defaults for the room types or sizes.  You might have some luck with placing an office room type, adjusting the size, and then using tools like transform/replicate to come up with some initial layouts.  At some point, you will have to go ahead and build the walls and continue on manually.

It can be. You can rename the room boxes as you see fit and use them to help plan the space.

You may also want to make sure that you are using the most appropriate room "function" and not just changing the room name.  For example, if the room is specified to be a garage, it will still behave like a garage even if you change the name to "boardroom".

15 years ago I was hoping Chief would acquire full industry standard BIM

so I could use Affinity using bi-directional BIM - just as Sketchup could 

 

no joy :)
