how to create an the Occupancy type and Code table with the Space tool


Recommended Posts

I Would like to us the space tool and assign an occupancy type (like A occupancy) then an occupancy load factor (like 15) then a total occupancy base on the s.f. of the space.

 

 

I know it can be done,  I'm sure i'm not the only one who needs to do this for code reviews.  why cant vectorworks provide some simple version of this without making me spend hours trying to find the answer.  I end up just manually doing this stuff.

 

I believe Vectorworks is as good or better than Revit, but dosn't mater if people can easily access the power of the software.   There are some really basic things that every architecture firms needs to do in their documents.  and how to do these things in vectorworks should be as easy as putting a door in a wall

love the new space tool 

love the tags

I pulled the worksheet from the gallery project.  It does do the math but what i really want is to have the data tag show how many occupants can be in the space.

 

cant figure a way to make a data tag give me the results 

 

any other thoughts

@mjm I believe in '22 we introduced the ability to have worksheet functions in data tags...that where the "WS" prefix in that string in the data tag function comes from
