Additional Information

Known Issues

For very large models it's best to place each type on their own i.e. do lights, then receptacles, then switch and save after each. Models originally created in 2016 and older than upgraded to 2019 will not work with this add-in. 

Some ceiling heights will not be found within the model, these result in 0'0" ceiling heights and lights will not be placed in these instances. 

Some door types as seen as walls and receptacles are populating in the doorway

Some wall types are not allowing receptacles to be hosted to them, in these instances receptacles will be placed un-hosted to wall.
