Arch Cell/sv


Byggnad är en speciell typ av Cell som är tänkt att innehålla en komplett byggnadsenhet. För närvarande är den enda skillnaden att den har en annan ikon.

How to use

  1. Optionally, select one or more objects to be included in your new building.
  2. Press the Arch Building.svg Arch Building button, or press the B then U keys.


  • Starting from FreeCAD version 0.18, the Building object is actually a BuildingPart with its DATAIFC role property set to "Building". You can convert any BuildingPart to a Building simply by changing its IFC role.
  • After creating a building, you can add more objects to it by drag and dropping them in the Tree View or by using the Arch Add.svg Arch Add tool.
  • You can remove objects from a building by drag and dropping them out of it the Tree View or by using the Arch Remove.svg Arch Remove tool.


  • DATABuilding Type: The type of this building, to choose from a list

The Building tool can be used in macros and from the Python console by using the following function:

Building = makeBuilding(objectslist=None, baseobj=None, name="Building")
  • Creates a Building object from objectslist, which is a list of objects, or baseobj, which is a Shape.


import FreeCAD, Draft, Arch

p1 = FreeCAD.Vector(0, 0, 0)
p2 = FreeCAD.Vector(2000, 0, 0)
baseline = Draft.makeLine(p1, p2)
baseline2 = Draft.makeLine(p1, -1*p2)

Wall1 = Arch.makeWall(baseline, length=None, width=150, height=2000)
Wall2 = Arch.makeWall(baseline2, length=None, width=150, height=1800)

Building = Arch.makeBuilding([Wall1, Wall2])

Site = Arch.makeSite(Building)
