Disable Discipline-Specific Calculations in Models

Disable Discipline-Specific Calculations in Models

Being able to globally disable certain calculations in models would be a great option. We separate our Arch, Mech, Elec, Fire, Plumb, and Stru models for increased model performance. However, if we could disable discipline specific calculations that would hide a lot of "junk" parameters that are unused in Spaces and many other categories. 

 

For example when FirePro edits the Space Parameters & Space Types for Life Safety & Sprinkler Plans, all the extra categories of parameters clog up the the workflow & ease of use;

  • "Electrical - Lighting" (only electrical would utilize these, let us hide them in all the other models)
  • "Electrical - Loads" (only electrical would utilize these, let us hide them in all the other models)
  • "Mechanical - Flow" (only Mechanical would utilize these, let us hide them in all the other models)

If we could disable the Mech or Elec calculations in a model, the ability of those parameters being hidden (just like a shared parameter when editing the .txt file), would be a great quality of life improvement and help keep people from getting overwhelmed with all the unused, non-discipline parameters in their models.
