I am new to Bentley software's, so i need some help.
I downloaded Aecosim connect, unfortunately (for me) I can't change the units since the template is US ones.
Anyone know how to do it in a way it stay permanent? Or where i can find and download an UK/EU (metric) ones?
Go to File Menu , File-> Settings->File- Design File Settings, and in Design File Settings UI Select 'Working Units', Change Master Unit and Sub Unit as per you requirement. Edit Advanced Settings to change the resolution for these new unit system.
i followed you instruction, it work for when i measure the element but when i design it is still display Feet units .
meaning when i follow the X,Y and Z axes to track the size/dimension is still in feet.... any more trick you can suggest?
I should have mentioned this in my last post that , if you want to use metric unit, it's better not to use US dataset rather you can use workset = BuildingTemplate_NM so that you will get everything in metric.
When you launch OBD, select workspace = Building_Examples and Select workset = BuildingTemplate_NM [Assuming you installed this ]
i have installed AECOsim connect. I try to find a NM template , no luck.
How i can get it? DO i have to reinstall AECOsim? If so which one are u suggesting?
I would suggest to use the latest available release build which is known as 'OpenBuildings Designer CONNECT Edition - Update 5'
But for time being , you can modify installer through command prompt, On installer window go to "Configure" button got to 'Next' button select , Neutral Metric [NM] [OR any other as country specific dataset available there as per your requirement] , click on 'Done', you will get it installed. Once done you should launch OBD, and select workspace = Building_Examples and Select workset = BuildingTemplate_NM.
thanks alot for the help:)
Just for reference, Sandeep's suggestion can also be found in this wiki: https://communities.bentley.com/products/building/building_analysis___design/w/building_analysis_and_design__wiki/36107/connect-edition---how-to-download-and-install-different-dataset-for-aecosim-building-designer
There are numerous other Wikis related to just about every OpenBuildings topic, so definitely worth visiting!
thanks for the support.I was able to install AECOsim 6, and as well i download the connect version.
I just have one more question: do you know if there is a channel (YouTube) to learn AECOsim trick and tips as well how it work? I try to search for it, but i can't find much:(
