how to make parametric buildings and rooms?

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

good morning,



i am new to vw and i am kind of spoiled from topsolids parametric and total associative construction what i did not found in vw.


The problems i have, drawing wall or floors is that i dont know the exact geometry of rooms or buildings.


I have to manage and create interior designs for shops but the measurement of the shops is in the offering phase not totally clear and exact and can only be taken from the rooms, when they are empty (only a few days before the fabrication of furniture).


but the measurement for offering will be done in complete equipped old furniture. It is not exact and has to be adjustet. but how? if i modify a wall, the floor will not follow, and so on.


1  weeks before i have to send the construction drawings to the joinery we take the exact maesures of the then empty rooms.


It is impossible to redraw, reconstruct or modifying all applied furnitures  after i modified the walls f.e.


How i can manipulate the outlines/contures of walls with simple parameters, so i can place all the cabinets, counters, shelfs before we got the exact measurements and then "only inscribe exact lengthparameters"?


is there even a possibility to use parameters? i did not found anything. 😞

Slabs can be linked to walls such that when you move a wall, the slab (floor system) will expand or contract accordingly.

Take a look at Associated Dimensions.

These are Dimensions that no only display the length of a wall as a standard Dimension does but which will actually adjust the wall length when you enter a new value.
