I am having 2 issues regarding zone schedule.
In the floor plan zone tool showing the area perfectly. (see fig -1)
But in the schedule those areas are showing zero. (see fig -2)
I checked the scheme I felt it is OK. (see fig -3)
I cannot figure out why it is getting wrong in the schedule.
I want to develop a floor area calculation for the developer. For that calculation
- I need to multiply the area with factors.
- I need to sum up the area of specific floor.
Do I need to go for excel sheet for these calculations or I can do it here in Archicad? This is the question
Yep, that is the culprit. Based on Low Ceiling Area reduction rules, all 100% of your area is reduced from the Measured Area, this is why your calculated area is zero.
Go to the Options > Project Preferences > Zone Dialog.
Change the values in the "Area reduction under low ceiling" area of the Dialog.
Can you post a screenshot of the current settings of this Dialog?
Also, are the 3D bodies of your Zones cut by some other element, maybe a Roof?
Can you select all your Zones and display only them in 3D, then post a screenshot of that, too? So I could see both the exact 3D geometry of those Zones and the Low Are Reduction rules affecting their Calculated Area calculation?
