A common occurrence with Template Projects is that additional data is required in order to make their calculations function properly. This data can include buildings or other Buildings. To minimize the effort required to create new projects which rely on additional data, a Geo Plugin can be set up to automatically import that data into new projects. For Buildings, this does not only include setting up the Geo Plugin itself, but also a Geo Link to define the desired Function(s).

Editor → Tools (Ribbon tab) → Geo Plugins (Ribbon bar)
