MEP quantification

Anonymous
Not applicable
Hello,

We are using MEP modeler to design exterior plumbing and electrical networks.
The latter are produced in particular with flexible sheaths.

The problem is that unfortunately we cannot extract the quantities of these elements.

We are using the MEP_StraightLength variable but this one gives completely inconsistent results.
For the pipes, we have values in centimeters and others in meters while they are the same networks.
For flexible ducts, we always get the same value: 195.

Does anyone have a trick to retrieve consistent amounts or is it impossible?
If this is the case it seems truly implausible.

Archicad version il the latest > 24 update 4018 1.1

The data indicated in meters instead of centimeters are the non-modifiable data of the pipe sections.

Do you try with flex ducts and sloped pipes ?

It works with sloped pipes, but not with flex ducts ! strange, maybe archicad does not recognize flex length
