Hello everyone

I was wondering if there was a way for us to tie the location of a wall relative to the project North. What I mean is that I would like that a wall that faces East based off of the Project North would know that it was facing that way. Essentially, I am making a schedule of these walls, and want to know from the schedule which way they are facing automatically after setting the Project North.

Thank you!!
It can't be done automatically at present. I think there may be a wish for it somewhere on this forum to assist with energy performance calculations. For scheduling my work around was to add a letter marker to the wall ID so you can filter the walls in the selection fields of the schedule. That was a couple of releases ago, these days I may be more inclined to create a custom field with the orientation. I guess it depends how many walls you need to tag whether this works for you. You could use a Graphic Override to check the walls are tagged correctly.
