Virtual group is a powerful tool for mass placement of items with predefined distance rules.
Virtual group can be used to place lights, columns, MEP elements such as sprinklers.
Virtual group links the elements to the architectural model layout.
The advantage of this is that if the room geometry is changed, elements placed with predefined distance rules can follow the new geometry.

It is possible to define the minimum distance from walls, the elevation of elements, the distances in between elements, the main axis direction by angle or graphically and so on.
When the distribution is complete, you can edit, delete, or move objects individually.
You can manage the virtual group as a unit to replace the distributed objects in one step.
This way, for example, without changing the floor plan, you can assign different spotlights to the rooms, a square spotlight to the living room, and a circular spotlight to the bathroom.
