Hi. I have a file that includes a big amount of Buildings geometry. Some of the buildings are "closed shapes" and possible to see an area of it. But a big amount is not- even Autocad shows that it is a closed polyline.Tried to use 0. Place a fence1. Bentley Map/Topology/ Create Centroid2. Bentley Map/Topology/Create Shapes
Does not work in some case with my file. Works with other files. Could you check and tell what is wrong?Buildings_for_forum.dgn
Hi,Topology tools are used to cleanup and create valid topology from line elements. Once it is validated, we will be able to create area from boundaries (line elements). So, when you are using create shapes tool on shape elements, it won’t give any results since shape elements are already existing. It should result to a "Found no boundaries".
In your file, if I drop shape to line, place a fence around lines and centroids (only one centroid by expected shapes), the Creates Shapes tool work properly to me.
I also see you work on 3D model. In case where you have elements on different Z values, you will need to enable Consider Z option in the Preferences > Topology dialog.
I hope that helps.Sebastien Lefrancois

Hi. I have that file with buildings and the buildings were created wrong- they all supposed to be like a closed Shapes. If I understood you correct in my case the only way to fix the situation is to
Sebastien.Lefrancois said:drop shape to line
How to do this operation for the huge amount of nonclosed shapes? I don't need Z and all is in 0 levels now.
I do not see the problem in the attached DGN. It recognize the 5 closed elements as shape.Before dropping, you can use Validate Topology tool to target non-closed building. You can also use other topology cleanup tools to found gap and dangles. Once topology is validated, you can use topology creation tools as create centroids and shapes. See online help for details on each tool; to see which one could be useful to you.If you prefer drop all to validate all drawing, you can drop a huge number of elements by selection or by using a fence. Then, pass topology cleanup tool first, and once validated, create topology shapes.Be sure the copy original files before processing.I hope my explanations are clear enough. I hope that helps.Sebastien
I had deleted reply from Vyacheslav Kostromin by mistake. Sorry about that.
He said : "Will try to to that. Thanks for supposrt. File that I sent was just cutted like an example. I have about 4000 buildings) So a bit biger job"I hope it will help.Sebastien
