Multiply Quantity using Expressions

Hi,

 

I am trying to calculate for parking requirements for various apartment types.

 

Right now, I've created a schedule that counts the number of zones plotted in each apartment unit. Ideally, one unit (meaning one zone) equals to just one count of parking. But in the 2 bedroom apartments, there is a requirement of 2 parkings per unit. 

 

How can I create an expressions that multiplies the count of a zone into 2 or 3?

I assume that you are using different Zone Categories for apartment units

so:

add an integer property and

add the expression:

 

IF ( {Property:Zone/Zone Category} = "1 BED", 1, IF ( {Property:Zone/Zone Category} = "2 BED", 2, IF ( {Property:Zone/Zone Category} = "3 BED", 3, 0 ) ) )

 

which will give you a 0 if the value is not "1 BED" or "2 BED" or "3 BED"

or you could use

 

IFS ( {Property:Zone/Zone Category} = "1 BED", 1, {Property:Zone/Zone Category} = "2 BED", 2 ,{Property:Zone/Zone Category} = "3 BED", 3 ,TRUE, 0)

 

which will give you an 0  if the value is not "1 BED" or "2 BED" or "3 BED"

add the field from " parameters and properties"

then sum the properties,

and "Hey Presto, you have baked a cake..."

I hope this is useful.

 

P.S.

using if statements:

I am up to page 4,152 of Archicad 27 Reference Guide, (Bluebeam Connection), but i got to read it all 😞
don't tell 'em i cheated by reading the last page first to see how it ends 🙂
