CodeBook Pro Releases New Room Finishes Module
Helping architects, designers and engineers to streamline information workflow and increase productivity
October 1, 2014, London, UK: CodeBook Pro releases Room Finishes Module for ceilings, floors and walls, underlining CodeBook’s commitment to developing functionality users need to improve workflow and increase productivity
CodeBook Pro Room Finishes Module
CodeBook can schedule the system families for ceilings and floors and apportion them to the appropriate CodeBook room in the project database.
The level and extent of each system family will be retrieved from Revit and this will be compared to the room extents.
If the system family spans multiple rooms, only the part covering the room will be assigned.
If more than one floor or ceiling system family overlaps with the room, each will be assigned to the room, with the calculated overlap areas.
To schedule the floor and ceiling families, it is not necessary for the Revit Room to exist in the Revit model, because CodeBook uses the room extent stored in the database during the room sync.
At present surface finishes are not being scheduled in their own right, but CodeBook will schedule the system wall families that form the boundary of the Revit room. These will be listed under the Finishes > Structure tab of the Room Editor.
There are reports of ‘Finishes By Room’ and ‘Finishes By Project’ that report to Excel xls files.
The Word document Room Data Sheet reports, also provide the option to include the Design finishes.
Report Settings provides the option to include the Required finishes, Design Finishes or both.
