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.
|TARGET||Choice||Defines 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.|
|ALL||Default. All groups.|
|GROUP||Groups mapped to IfcGroup.|
|ASSET||Groups mapped to IfcAsset.|
|INVENTORY||Groups mapped to IfcInventory.|
|SYSTEM||Groups mapped to IfcSystem.|
|BUILDINGSYSTEM||Groups mapped to IfcBuildingSystem.|
|DISTRIBUTIONSYSTEM||Groups mapped to IfcDistributionSystem.|
|DISTRIBUTIONCIRCUIT||Groups mapped to IfcDistributionCircuit.|
|ZONE||Groups 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.
|PATTERN||Text||The pattern the name of the target group must match to be deleted.||Default = *|
