Model Footprints are designed to give location context to issues. They are generated automatically from the building component geometry for each building story. Model Footprints include Space Information, Modular Grid, Component Footprints and Drawings (PDF). Modular grid is usually exported with the architectural IFC file.
To toggle the Footprint Controls on/off, click in the main toolbar.
Footprints will also automatically appear when visualising the checking results after rulesets have been processed.
() Space Info:
Shows the space information:
Space Information is read from the space components, so they are available only if the spaces are included in the model.
() Modular Grids:
Shows the grid, if it's included in the IFC.
() Component Footprints:
Shows the outline geometry of the components. A footprint is a 2D view of the floor that shows all the walls, doors and stairs:
Shows drawings, if PDF visualisation has been enabled in Footprints Settings.
Use the sliders to choose the floors for which you want the information to show. The top slider allows you to adjust footprint upper level, while the bottom slider allows you to adjust the footprint lower level.
To lock the footprint levels, click . Once locked, the footprint level sliders will remain in their positions regardless of selecting a result in the Results view, a slide in the Presentation view, or a row within an Information Takeoff definition.
