MEP 2011- I have created a small trial building, Trying to get the space calcs to work. I have 8' ceilings, Roof at 10'. I understand I need to create a "Plenum" Space, and to do this I need to add a level at the ceiling. The directions in the help say to go to the "Type Properties" and make the level a "Plenum" Type, however there is no such setting. I know you can set a "Space" to be a plenum type, but how do you create a Plenum Level?
Ok, got it to work. I put a level on the linked model, It had a plenum type. I opened the MEP model, copy-monitored, typed as plenum. Thank you for your reply.
NEW PROBLEM- the spaces below the ceiling still recognize the ceiling as a ROOF, even though the plenum space is set to "plenum". The offset is set 1' above the ceiling. I have to be missing something else.
try to move down you ceiling like 1/2 inch and check if it is solved
i have a feeling there is a problem with ceiling bounding and the base of your space object (confusion)
