General Usage Instructions

MEP Opening Plugin Usage Instructions

1. Element Origin:

  • In "Structure" and "MEP Discipline," choose the origin of structural and MEP elements.
  • Choose between the current model or the linked model for each discipline.
    • The linked model option is only available if there are links in the current model.
  • If opting for "Linked Model," select the desired model from the list.

2. Optional Parameters:

  • In "Name of the MEP discipline", enter a text for identifying openings (optional).
    • The entered text will be used in a specific parameter for identification in the opening family created by the plugin.
  • In "Standard opening gap (cm)," set the minimum clearance for openings concerning MEP elements.
    • Examples:
      • A gap of 0 (zero): Openings adjusted to MEP elements without additional clearances.
      • A gap of 5 (five): Minimum 5 cm distance between MEP elements and the opening instance in all directions.
  • Use the diameter button to configure nominal diameters, set the default gap, and view equivalences.

3. Diameter Configuration:

  • Clicking the diameter button opens a window allowing you to:
    • Set the default gap for openings.
    • Choose the nominal diameters considered by the plugin.
    • Visualize the equivalence between MEP element diameters and the inserted opening diameter, considering the chosen gap.

4. Verification Parameters:

  • Activate/deactivate minimum distance checks and configure:
    • "Distance to reference beam (cm)"
    • "Distance to reference slab (cm)".

5. Execution Scope:

  • Select how you want to run the plugin:
    • "Element selection": Openings for selected MEP elements.
    • "Region bounded by elements": Openings in elements within the region bounded by the selected elements (structural and MEP).
    • "Between levels": Openings in elements within the region bounded by two selected levels.
    • "By section box": Openings in the crop region (floor plans) or section box (3D views), including invisible elements.

6. Execution:

  • Click "Execute" after configuring the options and make selections according to the chosen scope.

7. Validations:

  • If you choose to perform checks in the ‘Validation Parameters' section and the plugin detects openings that violate specified distances, a new window will open. In this window:
    • Easily identify problematic openings by clicking on instances listed in each menu.
    • Delete unwanted opening instances by clicking on the trash bin icon.
