The following layers are used to generate the link from AutoCAD data to our IWMS application (e.g. Generates Space module data which links to floor plan occupants, and subsequently is used to generate all Space Allocation and Utilization reporting. iOffice recommends the following layers:

  • !A-AREA-SPACE

  • !A-AREA-FLOOR

  • !A-AREA-ROOM#

  • !BOUNDARY 

 

Rules for Modifying or Updating CAD Files for Upload to iOffice

A few rules to be aware of when modifying or updating CAD files for upload to iOffice's Site:

 

  1. !A-AREA-FLOOR layer shouldn’t be modified - This layer is configured to capture the designated RSF.

 

  1. !BOUNDARY layer shouldn’t be modified - This layer designates the print boundary within the iOffice application after upload to your site.

 

  1. !A-AREA-SPACE & !A-AREA-ROOM# layers designate each trackable area on the floor plan

    • !A-AREA-SPACE polylines should be updated/added/subtracted to match all space updates made within the AutoCAD drawing file

    • !A-AREA-ROOM# is the single layer (text field room value) used to designate the Unique identifier for the tracked space within the AutoCAD drawing file.

      • Each !A-AREA-SPACE polyline requires a single unique !A-AREA-ROOM# text field for AutoCAD processing and upload to your site's Space Administrator.

 

  1. All iOffice layers !A-AREA-SPACE, !A-AREA-FLOOR, !A-AREA-ROOM#, & !BOUNDARY are turned off before CAD upload to Space Administrator.
