Too much floor and ceiling area error...

2520 Views, 9 Replies

Problems were encountered with the building information model you sent to Green Building Studio.  See below for details.

  1. There is too much floor and ceiling area in the gbXML file received by Green Building Studio:

    • Floor and ceiling area = 2,928 m2
    • Building area = 2,365 m2

    The floor and ceiling area must be within 20% of the building area to perform meaningful energy analysis.

    Note: Typically this problem occurs when room or space objects are not properly defined in your Revit model. Check that all interior volumes in your model contain room or space objects that are fully enclosed by floors, walls, roofs or other room bounding elements. See Using Green Building Studio with Revit Architecture and Revit MEP for helpful details on room and space objects. To inspect the analytical model of the gbXML file in Revit 2010, click Export > gbXML on the Revit application menu and explore the details tab.
  2. Construction id=ASHIF5 could cause simulation failures.

Has anyone seen this and/or know how to fix it? 

 

Thank you,

Hi

Have you tried following the tips in the error message? Check that all interior volumes in your model contain room or space objects that are fully enclosed by floors, walls, roofs or other room bounding elements. To inspect the analytical model of the gbXML file in Revit, click Export > gbXML on the Revit application menu and explore the details tab.

Yes, I have redone it several times, and it still says that there is too much floor and ceiling area...

Is it possible that you provide your RVT or gbxml file so that we can analyze this?

Dear Autodesk Lady,

 

 I am having this same nightmare. My problem more specifically is that all rooms have a room object and name. I am working on my students project. He is using walls that are tilted, created from face based geometry. Due to this fact his walls were not registering as bounding walls. We used room seperation lines to create the spaces. I then deleted the tilted walls, and created straight walls. I am still having the same issue. Can you possibly give us a better clue rather than repeating the error message?

 

What floor to ceiling ratio does this mean?  It does not make any sense. Does this mean there are less spaces than actual square footage?

Can you provide me the Revit file and the exported gbXML file?

Hello,

Please provide us with the gbXML file exported from Revit and we can further diagnose the issue.

Hello everybody,

 

I could solve my problem. The problem was that each of my floor slabs were slightly below the level of the finished, for this reason the program was doubling my ceiling areas.

 

regards!

If you are uploading an xml file directly to GBS try performing the energy analysis from within Revit instead.
