skin type: 0 – cut, 1 – below cutplane, 2 – above cutplane (all skin types are 0 for simple walls);
trapezoid status: 0 – is not, 1 – is. For D/W in complex walls on the floor plan this variable contains the data of all cut skins, for wall ends on the floor plan the data of all skins.
finish skin status: 0 – not finish skin, 1 – finish skin,
oriented fill status: 0 – global or local fill orientation as set in the “fill orientation” column, 1 – fill orientation and size match with the wall skin direction and thicknessFor D/W and wall ends in the 3D window contains the data of the skins actually cut by the D/W or wall end.

applied on all edges in 3D window and on outline edges
(edges on view below cutting plane) in floor plan and section/elevation window
WALL_FBGD_PEN pen of the background of the fill of the wall
WALL_DIRECTION direction of the wall
straight walls: the direction of the reference line, curved walls: the direction of the chord of the arc
WALL_POSITION absolute coordinates of the wall
array with 3 columns: x, y, z, which means the position of the wall’s starting point relative to the project origin
WALL_TEXTURE_WRAP texture wrapping data of the wall to be used in VERT and COOR{2}, or COOR{3} commands. The coordinates are transformed to match the local coordinate system of the wall-connected object (no additional transformations needed).
array with 14 rows:

  • [1]:wrapping_method
  • [2]:wrap_flags
  • [3]-[4]-[5]: origin_X, origin_Y, origin_Z (nodes of vert 1)
