Measurement Description

Net Area:
  • Area of the largest surface of an object, excluding voids.
Double Net Area:
  • Calculated as “Net Area * 2”.
Gross Area:
  • Area of the largest surface of an object, including voids.
Double Gross Area:
  • Calculated as “Gross Area * 2”.
Net Side Surface Area:
  • Side surface area of an object, excluding voids on the sides.
Gross Side Surface Area:
  • Side surface area of an object, including voids on the sides.
Outer Surface Area:
  • Total area of a object, excluding voids and end faces (horizontal faces for a column and 2 minimal vertical faces for a beam).
Outer Surface Area Without Top:
  • Total surface area of an object, excluding top and end faces.
Min Double Face Area:
  • Double area of the smallest surface of an object, including voids.
Mid Double Face Area:
  • Double area of the medium surface of an object, including voids.
Max Double Face Area:
  • Double area of the largest surface of an object, including voids.
Net Top Area:
  • Area of the top surface of an object, excluding voids.
Net Bottom Area:
  • Area of the bottom surface of an object, excluding voids.
Gross Volume:
  • Gross Volume for concrete beams (before cutting the volumes of an adjacent slab and adjacent columns from a beam, often used to calculate the weight of reinforcement bars).
Net Volume:
  • Volume of an object, excluding voids.
Length:
  • The largest linear dimension of an object.
Projection Length:
  • Plain projection of the linear length of an object.
Steps Length:
  • The total length of all steps of the stairs.
Total Perimeter:
  • Perimeter of the horizontal section of the wall or the floor, including perimeter of inner voids (suited for slanted objects too).
Outer Perimeter:
  • Perimeter of the horizontal section of the wall or the floor (suited for slanted objects too).
Perimeter Without Doors:
  • Perimeter which is calculated in the same way as "Outer Perimeter", subtracting the width of the doorway. Can only be calculated in locations.
Quantity:
  • Number of objects with the same properties in a model.
