Wall area calculation associated with spaces

I have started to experiment with VA and was wondering if there is a method for calculating the area of the associated surfaces to a space. I am mainly wondering about wall area with opening areas subtracted.

The use case would be something like if I was trying to calculate the inside wall surface area of a space to estimate the amount of paint needed for the entire room.


Hi Peder,

Unfortunately this is not possible, but we will possibly add this feature for a future version.

In the meantime we are going to publish a Grasshopper definition that will achieve that.

Kind regards,

I see, it would be super useful to be able to associate surfaces, elements and styles to spaces. In many projects its easier to reference building components from the space they are in.

Looking forward to the GH def!
