Base Extractors Description

N.B! Base Extractors calculate geometric characteristics of an object. The layers of a single element (e.g. walls, floors) do not have a separate geometry. They are simply part of the Assembly geometry. Thus Base Extractors will not calculate the value of a single layer. They will calculate the value of the Assembly. This should be taken into account, determining the layer's thickness and the volume.

The list of the Base Extractors:

  • Object.SurfaceArea — full surface area of the element. 

object-surface-area

  • Object.HorizontalSurfaceArea — analyses the surface of the element and calculates the area of its horizontal parts.

object-horizontal-surface-area

  • Object.VerticalSurfaceArea — analyses the surface of the element and calculates the area of its vertical parts.

object-vertical-surface-area

  • Object.Volume — calculates the volume of the element's geometry.
