This plug-in can be used with AutoCAD to simplify the process of determining evacuation routes and distances.
The Evacuaciones Cad-Projects 1.1.0 application calculates distances from a few blocks called PTS, which are automatically inserted in orderly manner around other blocks called EXITS, in an iteration that makes these PTS would be distributed across all the surface, whenever not found any obstacle in its path, finally obtaining a grid with the distance from each PTO to its nearest EXIT.
The grid thar is creates can be up to four different sizes, acording to the Point Size in meters is 0.25, 0.50, 1 o 2. With smaller grids more accurate results are obtained, but the computation time may be longer.
Another parameter that influences the calculation is the, Propagation Radius, that is the maximum distance used for each new PTO to be inserted as radius to determine which PTOS near around it is better to be used as EXIT.
To make a calculation of evacuation follow the steps:
You can set defaults values for calculating or color for arrows and lines:
Insert the EXITS blocks numbering them.
Before performing a calculation of evacuation is necessary to place the EXITS. The EXITS are like seeds around which will inserting the PTOS in the grid.
At the EXIT insertion first specifies the Point Size and then the Initial Number of the serial to automatic numbering the rest of the inserted EXITS.
The point size established for the exits determines the grid size used in the calculation, therefore will be the same used to the rest of the grid points.
It is not recommended to use the same EXIT number for two different EXIT points.
Calculate the distances from the PTS to their EXITS.
Before performing a calculation of evacuation is necessary to place the EXITS. (See the command INSERTEXITS). The EXITS are like seeds around which will inserting the PTOS in the grid.
To calculate the evacuation, first specifies the Point Size, that it must be the same used in the EXITS, and then specifies the Propagation Radius.
The Propagation Radius is the maximum distance used for each new PTO to be inserted as radius to determine which PTOS near around it is better to be used as EXIT.
Evacuaciones Cad-Projects 1.1.0 application calculates distances from a few blocks called PTS, which are automatically inserted in orderly manner around other blocks called EXITS, in an iteration that makes these PTS would be distributed across all the surface, whenever not found any obstacle in its path, finally obtaining a grid with the distance from each PTO to its nearest EXIT.
Before calculating evacuation make sure that the plant is completely closed so the propagation will be made to its limits, in case of opening, the propagation would spread along all the model space, escaping through this opening and never would end insert new PTOS.
Also is needed be sure that it passes through hollows like doors, ramps or stairs there are no lines or objects that hinder evacuation routes. For example, door's opening arcs, riser lines or slope lines in stairs and ramps may hinder this evacuation routes, so you may need to turn off layers or even eliminate these elements.
Color the calculation results.
Color each PTO of the grid according to their distance to its EXIT with a range of colors from green, for PTOS located nearest to the EXIT, to red, to the farthest EXIT PTOS.
When run the command, the value of the Maximum Distance are requested, this value is the value of the longest possible evacuation path according to the applicable standard, and the value wherein the color of the PTOS more approximates to the red color.
Two types of colored can be selected:
Indicates the direction of evacuation in each PTO or along a path.
Indicates the direction of evacuation at each PTO by inserting an ARROW block pointing to the evacuation direction of the PTO.
The arrows can be inserted at all PTOS in the model space, indicating all possible evacuation routes, or along a Path created with the command FINDEXIT.
When run the command, the value of Point Size are requested, in this way the size of the arrow fits to the Point Size, therefore it is recommended to use the same value used for the calculation.
The command has this two options:
It possible to change default ARROWS color:
Draw the path from one PTO to its EXIT.
Draw the evacuation route from a selected PTO to its EXIT.
When run the command, the value of Point Size are first requested, then the Propagation Radius are requested. The values must be the same values used in the calculation.
If different values to those used in the calculation are used, may not find EXITS (if lower values are specified), or it may take longer than necessary (if higher values are specified).
It possible to change default PATHS color:
Sets the default parameters of the application.
To open the configuration dialog box of the application, click the button in the corner of the Evacuation Group on the Ribbon or write EVACUATIONSCONFIG in the command line.
From the Settings window of Evacuaciones Cad-Projects 1.1.0 you can set the default values for the application.
It possible to change the following values:
A package can be deployed using an installer, such as MSI, or manually copying the files and folder structure to the ApplicationPlugins folder "C:\ProgramData\Autodesk\ApplicationPlugins\". For applications downloaded from Autodesk Exchange, deployment of the package is done using an MSI installer. The Evacuaciones Cad-Projects 1.1.0 plug-in is automatically installed from Autodesk Exchange APP Store.
By default, plug-ins are automatically registered with AutoCAD and when a new plug-in is installed during the current session. The load behavior for plug-ins is controlled with the APPAUTOLOAD system variable. When APPAUTOLOAD is set to 0, no plug-ins are loaded unless the APPAUTOLOADER command is used.
To uninstall this plug-in you can go to the plug-ins tab, click the icon Exchange App Manager, select the application from the list, and with the second mouse button click the uninstall option from the dropdown menu. If the option is not available, open a new window browser file . In the address bar type "C:\ProgramData\Autodesk\ApplicationPlugins\" and press enter. The folder containing the application files will open. Locate the "Evacuaciones_1.1.0.bundle" folder and delete it or move it to another location.
Another option for uninstall the application is do it in the control panel, in the Programs and Features Window. To do this you need to go to Control Panel \ Programs \ Programs and Features, select Evacuaciones_110 in the program list and click the Uninstall button in the options bar. Also you can click with the right mouse button on the icon of the application and select Uninstall.
