BCW and Drawing Validator Identified Issues

Postby forumadmin » Wed Sep 26, 2012 3:03 pm

Do you have a drawing where Automated BCW either errors out on or seems to go away to never never land?

Automated BCW is very fast, taking only a couple minutes to do everything on the entire demo/tutorial school. Even projects that are hundreds of thousands of square feet take only 20 minutes for a complete run of Automated BCW. So when these time windows are exceeded and processing just seems to go on and on, it is highly likely that something in the data has send Automated BCW for a loop.

The first thing to check is if the Drawing Validator is flagging anything for you to clean up. Issues like missing or extra Room IDs, overlapping room boundaries, and devices not in a space (aka room) boundary can mess Automated BCW up. So resolve all issues flagged by the Drawing Validator, save the drawing, and try Automated BCW again. In our experience, this resolves almost all Automated BCW issues.

Still not getting results? Email your drawing to support@draftlogic.com!
