Is there any tool for automatically calculate Abstandsfläche (It is distance space according German norms DIN)? I tried to create such a tool by myself but I only manage in a semi-automatic way, I always have to enter one of the value manually.
I know that a lot of different components and tools exist for the German market, so maybe I don't need to reinvent the wheel when maybe such a tool already exists?
There is an object for that in the ArchiCARD library. I've never used it, but because of the many different rules in the federal states you'll never have a fully automatic way except for VERY easy cases. But what's easy anyway nowadays?
I guess it theoretically could be programmed as an add-on which then could react to a change of the outer shell of the building. But even then you would probably need to classify all external surfaces first. Ask @BerndSchwarzenbacher, he's programming add-ons and has good ideas.
