WorkSpace - Workset

Hello Community,

I have one client, and they have a lot of projects and all different building IFC's. And buildings have allways the same reference, and that is 0,0,0. And not the world orientation.

In my environment I created a workspace for my client and worksets for the project.

How can I handle the Floormanager and grids. Because you can create new buildings in floormanager, but how can I handle the grid. Cause I can't create the grid for the new building. It is oriented for one big plant.

Do you have to create Workspaces for the different projects? But I have one  client, and that is my workspace. And when I get another client, I create a workspace for that client.

I work for different clients, and I create WorkSpaces for each client.

  • Hi Andy,

    The intention behind WorkSpaces is to support exactly that multi client situation, anticipating that different clients may have varying CAD/BIM standards. A WorkSpace can store standards (DGNLIBs etc) relevant to a client's that will be accessible to all of the WorkSets within that WorkSpace.

    Each WorkSet must contain a BB_Floormaster.dgnlib to store floors and grid systems.

    A WorkSet can contain one or more buildings (depending on how you organize your projects). If a WorkSet contains multiple buildings the Floor Manager and Grid Systems Manager can be used to create multiple sets of floors and grids with the appropriate offsets and rotations (as described by Johan).

    In Floor Manager, a rotation can be applied to floors but offsets are not needed as the floors are simply reference planes with unlimited extents:

    Both offsets and rotations must then be applied to Grid Systems (for completeness this example shows floors at different rotations, which will not apply to most buildings):

    This information is now in our wiki Grid Systems - Applying Rotations to Floors and Grid Systems.

    Floor Management - Changing the name of BB_FloorMaster.dgnlib may also be of interest.
