  1. MEP Electrical Fixtures reverting to previous Circuit Number after STC

    Not sure to post this here or in the MEP forum but since it seems to be a Worksharing problem, here goes:

    Ok, think I get it.

    First off: IFC's aren't meant to work with. They're meant to be used like you would use a dwg from a project partner: as an underlay. Anything other then that isn't supported...

    Same here. I don't manually dabble with SP's. Too much hassle for me and frankly, knowing my trackrecord of breaking stuff, it would probably turn into a disaster pretty quick.

    +1 for the Color Scheme and just modelling the floors. If they're there, they're there. Period.
    Having said that, there's no reason not to use an addin if it does the job right.

    What usual helps me:

    X = A/B + C/D - 2*(C/E)*F + (C/2)/D

    you want A, right?

    so: A/B = X - C/D + 2*(C/E)*F - (C/2)/D
    which means: A = (X - C/D + 2*(C/E)*F - (C/2)/D)*B
