How to include 'volumes' and masses in area metrics?

Is there a way to make buildings out of drawn volumes and masses, to include them in the area calculations?

Hi @osayed643PD,

Linear and basic buildings are automatically added to the area metrics. Can you add a screenshot of your building and tell us how you have generated/designed/imported it?

Yes the buildings are added, but I want to add some of the volumes from ShapeDriver into the metrics too. Any way I can do that?

Unfortunately that is not yet possible, although we are looking into enabling that 🙂
Would love to learn what type of scripts are you thinking - Could you perhaps share some Rhino viewport screenshots / description of the need you have?

This is not possible at the moment, but it is something we are talking about! We absolutely see the value of enabling Area metrics on more types of buildings/volumes, and are currently discussing what could be a good way of doing this.
