Model Builder / 3D Model View - Old Model still showing up

 
Hi Shane
 
Hope you are keeping well?.
 
I am wondering if I might be able to call on your expertise again.
 
I am having issues with a model I have drawn up.
 
The original model was done about two years ago. The building has since changed layouts. I have uploaded the new dxf and traced in the room.
 
When I go to view the model in 3D viewer I can still see the old Model (Marked with and X  in the snip.)
 
When I deselect a floor in my new model is also deselect thhe corresponding room in the old Model , its like they have been linked together. This is the same for the 2nd floor.
 
The first floor seems to be ok.
 
What I am worried about is when I run a heat loss simulation will the doublicate rooms be getting mashed or read  into the new model causing a faulty results reading.
 
When I go to the heat loss program I can see the old rooms from the old model.
 
Would you have come across this before , if so is there any trick to fix this or is it a case of re starting over??
 
Any help is greatly apreaciated.
 
 
Snip 1
 
 
Kind Regards
 
Seamus  Murphy

  • Hi Seamus,

    I'm good thanks, hope all's well with you.

    When you enter a new DXF into an existing model (ie as shown here) the model will not be impacted. Any traced rooms will remain, just with the new DXF background.

    I suspect two things have led to your confusion:

    1. It sounds like your new DXF had a different origin point to the previous one, that is why the floor plans appear far apart.

    2. It sounds like you have then traced duplicate rooms over this new DXF

    If the above sounds like it could be the case, then you would need to firstly back up the project as it is, and then delete the duplicate rooms. If you have difficulty zooming to the duplicate rooms due to the now very large area of the floors,  you can user Find Room as below:

    Hope that helps.

    Regards,

    Shane
