How does the importing of a gbxml file option function?

There are a couple things to note about the current import process implementation:

  • Currently we only focus on importing envelope components. This means you will still be required to manually specify your space types, lighting fixtures, and mechanical systems that appear in your building.
  • Depending on the size of your building, a gbXML file can potentially contain thousands of surfaces to fully represent your structure. Working with that many envelope components in COMcheck is unreasonable, which is why we identify surfaces with similar characteristics and aggregate them during the import process.
