No Stories, No Problem

Recommended Posts

@Zeno, I don't know if you'd be able to due to client confidentiality, but if you could post your set-up file so others could see, it might encourage folks to try.

 

Maybe strip out all the geometry, sheet layers, etc and just leave the story set-up?

Here you are

 

ISSUE: before creating stories, I'm used to sketch a schema, like the attached one. Maybe it can not correspond with the file, but it is very useful before start. It's easy and quickly, then you can have more control.

Ciao Zeno, do you use a common Z for all buildings or every building has its own project zero?

Accordingly, how do you set up the Reference Elevation in the Export IFC Project settings?

Why must I write in English with an Italian user -_-

 

So, I'm used to set the global 0 in a specific point on site. From there I start to set the project. For IFC Export I didn't change any parameters on reference elevation.

Thank you Zeno, 😀

 

... I just have been reproached that I speak a total mix between German and English!

I think that we will do a common zero for the project. We must use the coordinates during IFC export, so, let's go for "common zero".

Hi all! @Wes Gardner, is there any possibility of having the files first published with this thread. They aren't available any more. I've been using Vectorworks for more than 20 years, but I'm new to stories. I was interested in checking these files as the ones in the "Model Set Up (Revisited for 2019)" thread, which aren't available also.

do you export one building or all of them in one ifc file?

 

it's not possible to have many 'zero' levels in one vw file, the zeno's approach is the right one.

you can but reference all edifices as separate design layers in a file with the whole plot setup (eg. all buildings are in 1:50 scale, and are referenced in the 1:500 raumordnungsplan)...

Curious to know this too. The AEC UK BIM protocol says no more than one building to be modelled in a single file, with a separate container model to bring them together. (Then again it also recommends one Sheet per file for data tracking purposes!) Whether you export all buildings to one file or not depends on the requirements of the people you're sending it to I guess.

Hi All, I have a question to weigh into the stories debate. Do you use separate plot files or have all of your sheets/documentation coming out of the model file? I've come up with issues a few times where the stories change throughout the design process and the individual plot files start to have errors because the stories are no longer identical. Even if we then manually fix the changes sometimes these errors still persist. Has anyone had experience with this? For me, it seems super counter-intuitive that you shouldn't be able to have the stories referenced into a plot file and updated with the model every time they change.

such container would be a separately required (by polish law) site development plan (which is in a 1:500, or sometimes 1:1000 scale). this plan is in world coordinates (required by the authorities of the infrastructure planning), and with true north orientation, as opposed to the edifice models that are in 1:50 or 1:100. 

 

the edifice models are referenced in the site model, and all changes in storeys are handled separately for each building. i use such a workflow for years, but i will listen to other options.
