    Room Geometry not Created

    Congrats all, i think I got the 100th thread here!
    plus 128 members today and also seeing lots of guests viewing, great.

    My question is that I am getting an error message on opening my local ARC model that says "Cannot Create Room Geometry".
    It allows me to click okay and then open the model.

    I then try and place a room object into a space and it seems to be created okay, altho I cannot see the room in plan view, only in schedule. Also as I place the room I get a warning saying that once again "Cannot Create Room Geometry"
    The new room is then invisible in plan view but I can see all other rooms as shaded objects.

    I keep coming back to the error message on the Room Geometry?! I am checking the closures of all walls etc and the space seems to be defined properly (See Image), but room will not create normally or visibly.

    Can anyone help me to solve this one.

    Very odd, can't say I've come across that one.

    Have you gone through "Review Warnings" to see if there's something going on there?

    As an experiment, can you place any rooms around the enclosed room (e.g. the elevator, hallway, etc.)?

    Not sure if you're using worksharing, but if you are, try creating a new local file?

    I hope someone else can chime in who's seen this before.


      The room can be created and does show calculated values for Area etc, but will not show in the plan.
      Other areas on plan are fine except for about 7 rooms, all nearby to one another.

      Yes it does come up as an warning/error saying "Could not create geometry for room"

      It seems strange that I can part complete the task, to create room, and generate area, but then not see the room and for it have errors.

        It probably seems like grasping at straws, but when I get really odd behavior, I try cleaning up as many warnings as possible - such as "the highlighted walls overlap" kind of stuff. Even if it seems unrelated, sometimes cleaning up one issue magically fixes another. Sorry I can't be more help.


          Maybe you could pinpoint the problem by "dividing" the room with a Room Seperation Lines, and try to place rooms on both sides > Repeat this as many times you have to, to get close enough the the element at fault.

            That is really good advice, I never thought of trying to narrow down my problem area that way!
