Group Rename

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 renaming groups of a given type that have a name that matches a given pattern.

Configuration Options

Because this tool needs to be configured it can only be run from a template. This tool is not visible in the Tools drop-down menu of the ribbon.

TARGETChoiceDefines the target of the operation, i.e. the groups that might be renamed by the tool. For example TARGET=ZONE specifies that only groups mapped to IfcZone may be renamed.
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.
OLD_NAMETextAny textThe name of the group that should be renamed. The name comparison is case insensitive, i.e. ABC=abc.
NEW_NAMETextAny textThe new name of the group.
