ii. New Tools & Apps Developed by Pinnacle

a. Revit: Purge Overlapped Elements

Functionality: Used to identify and purge overlapped elements
Purpose: Often it is found that while merging or copying or modifying elements in Revit model two or more elements of the same category and/type get placed at the same location or they partially intersect each other. This results in faulty data in schedules and creates a poor quality output. The tool automatically analyzes the solid geometries and shows the overlapping elements in groups and categorized in the following categories:

Super imposed: identical solid at exactly the same location
overlapped: where two solids of same category intersect each other’s solid geometry partially
Completely overlapped: When one solid with a greater volume is hiding another solid with a lesser volume completely inside it
