Wall Area

Recommended Posts

Hello everybody,


perhaps can someone help me.

I try to get the wall area with the window. (not the net Area).

Has someone an idea ? I try all day long with marionette, but i didn't find something and my Scripting skill are by zero..

Look at the following worksheet functions:

WALLAREA_GROSS (area of walls not subtracting openings)

WALLAREA_NET (area of walls subtracting openings)

You can do this with Marionette, but the only functions available are criteria-based functions, which makes the Marionette approach somewhat more complicated (compared to, say, handle-based functions).

Thank you for your quick reply.

actually i need this value with my wall (exporting in IFC)

I changed the script of a node (get Component)  and it works.
