Group Delete

This tool is part of Simplebim Prototypes addon. In order to use the tool, you need to download and install the addon from here.

Tool for deleting groups of a given type that have a name that matches a given pattern. This tool is useful for deleting groups that you don’t need, which makes IFC file sizes smaller and speeds up operations inside Simplebim.

TARGETChoiceDefines the target of the operation, i.e. the groups that might be deleted by the tool. For example TARGET=ZONE specifies that only groups mapped to IfcZone may be deleted.
ALLDefault. All groups.
GROUPGroups mapped to IfcGroup.
ASSETGroups mapped to IfcAsset.
INVENTORYGroups mapped to IfcInventory.
SYSTEMGroups mapped to IfcSystem.
BUILDINGSYSTEMGroups mapped to IfcBuildingSystem.
DISTRIBUTIONSYSTEMGroups mapped to IfcDistributionSystem.
DISTRIBUTIONCIRCUITGroups mapped to IfcDistributionCircuit.
ZONEGroups mapped to IfcZone.
<Object Class>This option is used for deleting type objects. For example the value WALL sets the target to types of IfcWall.

NOTE: It is possible to delete also type objects with this tool because internally type objects are handled as groups in Simplebim.
PATTERNTextThe pattern the name of the target group must match to be deleted.Default = *
