    Areas

    Hi

    we are doing some apartments and it would be nice to see the total area of the entire apartment and tag this on my plans. I can only do it it in my area plans.... My total areas for the apartment, contains different parameters and one of them, i also want to tag on my plans. It is a number on the apartment. See attached image.

    can you help?

    Hi Mads.
    You can only do this with Area Plans... BUT, you could create an area plan with only the "tags" displaying, and simply place that view on top of the normal plan view at the sheet

      Right, so what is the question exactly? Maybe it's me but I cannot really find out where you're stuck.

      If you want to automatically recognize the apartment number between different types of Areas or from Rooms, then you're toast. It won't happen.
      But that might not be necessary, because there is a way to recalculate the total area of any given set of rooms (or areas) with a shared parameter value, in this case the appartment number. Check out my blog here on the RFO Blog page and this page. It explains how to do that. Using that method, you can tag any room/area with the total area of all rooms/areas with the same appartment number.

        Klaus, I'm offended... you didn't read my blog post! Shame on you... :laugh:
        Seriously, it can be done. All the parameters and values are present in the sample file I posted with that thread.

          Actually I did read it, but maybe I didn´t understand it then

          Still don´t see how you could use that method to add the GROSS area of an apartment/unit to the regular floor plans... but please enlighten me

          BTW Mads: Balkon is without the "g"

            And here I was thinking I was being clear and understandable... ouch, lucky for me I never wanted to be a teacher...

            The short answer is:
            To make the tag as shown in the OP you need two things:
            1. A shared parameter in which you assign a room to a given appartment number (in this case type C)
            2. A shared parameter that gives the total area of all rooms with the same appartment number (btw, the numbers don't add up: it says 125m2 on the right, but calculates to 88 oon the left)

            This method is working because it recalculates the total area out of all given rooms in a schedule. When you filter or sort the schedule using the appartment number, it will recalculate the total area for each appartment.

            Long version: I'll rebuilt the example for this particular instance and post it tonight... Have to do some work now...

            EDIT:
            Crap, he needs a tag. Right, that's gonna be a problem with the total area... Got to look into that.

              No in Norway its with a G, Klaus ;-)...

              The total area i need, is the gross area for my apartment and not the total area of the rooms. As Klaus says, i can't see how to show this..

              Actually i need 2 show 2 different total areas for the appartment on my plans. In Norway they have a lot of area calculations.

                I'm confused, how do you calculate your room area then? In Holland the walls are included in the Room Area.
                Would be nice to have some standard calculation rules!

                Could you enlighten me some on the calculation rules and which you need to show?
                Cause it's possible to show both room tags and total area on 1 view.

                  The 2 areas i calculated as this:

                  Gross area: is the total area with all walls and rooms (exterior and interior)
                  BRA Area (called in Norway): Is the the same, without the exterior

                    Right, and the Gross Area is the "Appartment C, 125m2"
                    The BRA, is this calculated in the seperate room tags?
