Color mass Floors according to usage

1013 Views, 3 Replies

I assigned to each mass floor an usage, and my schedule functions well . That tool is wonderful, isn't it?


But I would want to display each usage in a different color, to show my client how I am organizing the building. Is this possible? Mass floors seems not to have a color or material property.


Thank you,

You could use filters to assign colors to the floors, based on usage. See the attached file for details. And yes, it’s a wonderful tool!


Hope this helps.

At the risk of being dumb why does this work for the 3D view and not the level views?  As far as I can see you still end up with the same purple.

It doesn't look like the View Filter setup on the 3D view has been configured within the Plan Views.


I tested adding the Usage A View Filter (configuring the same overrides), and the color of the Mass Floor then shows up the same as in the 3D view.
