ARCHICAD 22 - HOW TO CONVERT CALCULATED UNIT

Anonymous
Not applicable
Hi All, i know you can set unit for the whole schedule in ARCHICAD using project dimensions setting, but..
Does anyone here know how to convert specific unit of an item in the interactive schedule?
i.e. only column cross section width or length from meter to centimeter, but the rest should stay in meter

Any help would be greatly appreciated
Thanks in advance

You'll have to create an expression property multiplying your column width.
Like:
(Core Width) * 100
Be assured to assign it to columns in the availability for classifications tab

Just to avoid any possible confusion for anyone coming across this thread: expressions are available with ARCHICAD 22 forward.

yeah, figure out i'd have to do that by adding the multiplication myself in the expression editor

Before 22 (which still is the case in NL, as it is not out yet), I made a property and typed the dimensions there and scheduled that...

Hi,

I have similar problems here:
https://archicad-talk.graphisoft.com/viewtopic.php?f=11&t=61897&p=284735#p284735

I don't think that creating hundreds of expression based properties is feasible in the long run, units should be controlled in a much more flexible way for display, than project settings.

It is a subject from last year but I am also interested in solving this problem for my projects.
In my case I am also trying to get an automatic value of the slab thickness represented in centimeters. The multiplication solves the problem but another one appears.
0,20 x 100 = 20,00 the result should a be a number without decimals, so simply just 20.

Try this :

STRTONUM ( STRCALCUNIT ( Core Width * 100 ) )

and set the data type as Integer.
