AREA_​FORM_​TOP_​GLOBAL, AREA_​FORM_​BOTTOM_​GLOBAL, AREA_​FORM_​SIDE_​GLOBAL

These template attributes show the area of faces whose normal vector points in the following directions in the global coordinate system:

  • Top of form (AREA_FORM_TOP_GLOBAL)

  • Bottom of form (AREA_FORM_BOTTOM_GLOBAL)

  • Form sides (AREA_FORM_SIDE_GLOBAL)

Use these template attributes with the CAST_UNIT content type to report the formwork areas of cast-in-place cast units. These attributes and areas are not dependent on the Top-in-form face settings.

To report the formwork areas of precast cast units, use the template attributes AREA_FORM_TOP, AREA_FORM_BOTTOM, and AREA_FORM_SIDE.
