Light Fixture Dimensions By Room

I’m trying to dimension some RCPs but the dimension strings are going across multiple rooms. Would be great if we could dimension to adjacent walls or by room.

This is also the first time I’m trying to do this so if there is a different method please advise and thanks!

@hirammrom ,

Lighting fixtures dimensions are per room basis, see the example below:

Can you confirm the room boundaries are not overlapping between the rooms?


@Miguel I see. Working in MF we often dimension to walls instead of grids for lights on gyp. bd. ceilings. In this case we are working on a wood project where we do not show grids past the podium level. Additionally there are multiple rooms with a single fixture, but since it is only one light the plug-in doesn’t know what to do with it.

On top of that there are some spaces that blend together so I can see why some of my dims crossed multiple spaces - ie: going from kitchen to hallway - there is no room boundary modeled so it seems the plug in is reading multiple lights within an oddly shaped room.
