Objects have Facing Direction Property

Status: Gathering Support
by Contributor jpolding on ‎09-30-2016 01:42 PM

My wish is that all Revit objects have a property reporting on their facing direction based upon the True North.


This would be especially useful for Walls, Windows and Doors.




Almost every Building Department in North America requires a 'Spatial Separation' table. This shows the total exposed wall area, the total unprotected area (not fire rated) and a percentage of the two. This is required for each direction North, South, East and West.


We also need the correct exterior wall face areas...already posted the idea.
