In some cases, air terminals may be placed so that the location of the connector is not inside a space. The room calculation point is used as a search point to determine what space the air terminal is in. You can edit the family
for the air terminal to enable the Room Calculation Point, and then move the location of the calculation point so that it is located inside the space. In the Family Editor, in the Properties palette, enable Room Calculation Point. Edit the location of the Room Calculation Point so that it is located inside the space.
Video: Room Calculation Point
Since the room calculation point specifies which space the air terminal is in, it is also reflected in schedules. For example, if you include a column in the schedule with Space data, such as name and number, the space dictated by the room calculation point will be used.
