Ceiling finishing


Creates ceiling finishes

  1. Choose premises
  2. Set the level at which the ceilings will be built
  3. To assign ceilings to a room, select from which room parameter and to which ceiling parameter to transfer the value.
  4. Assign a ceiling type to each room type
  5. Click "Create Ceilings"

For versions 2019 - 2021, the ceiling is built by the "Floor" category. This limitation is caused by the lack of a ceiling creation feature in the Revit API.

For version 2022 and later, the ceiling is built with the Ceiling category.

Room selection

  • All in project - building ceilings for all rooms in the project
  • All in active view – building ceilings only for rooms displayed in the active view
  • Selected - construction of ceilings only for selected rooms
  • All on level - construction of ceilings only for rooms located on the floor selected by the user

Ceiling offset

  • From level - the value is set in mm, the user must set the required height relative to the floor level
  • To the top of room - the ceiling level is equal to the value of the "Offset from above" parameter of the selected room.
  • Join to slab above – the program automatically determines the elevation of the ceiling that limits the room from above, the thickness of the ceiling selected by the user, and lays the ceiling along the ceiling.

Binding to the room

To assign ceilings to a room, select from which room parameter and to which ceiling parameter the value should be passed.

Choice type select

For the convenience of further selection of ceilings, filters are selected in the upper part of the window:

  • Maximum thickness - filters by the thickness of the ceiling type
  • Filter by parameter - filters by the parameter and value specified by the user in the ceiling type

Setting ceiling options

In the tabular section, each room is assigned a type of ceilings:

  • Room - this column contains all the values of the "Name" and "Destination" parameters of the rooms
  • Ceiling finish - type of ceilings selected by the user
  • Boundary – whether to add the “Room boundary” feature for the created ceilings

Save - saves all form settings

Reset - restores the values saved before the launch of the settings window

Create Ceilings - creates floors based on user-specified parameters
