Having difficulty creating a (Door) Hardware Schedule with IFC Properties.
The schedule wants to itemize the hardware sets as enumerated on the door schedule. As the "hardware set" is not a predefined element in Archicad there is a missing connection .
True hinges, location and Lockset can be designated, however other items such as Closers; Silencers; Door Stop; Misc. can not be found in AC, 'out-of-the-box'.
As well more itemizations such as
Magnetic Lock, Card Reader, Release Button, Electric Strike, Ladder Pulls, Flush Pull, Edge Pull, Sliding Door Hardware, Magnetic Door Catch & others need o find a place, perhaps in the Pset (Property Set).
Are there any online examples describing such an IFC schedule? Unable to locate.

Michael, I don't know if you're still looking for an answer, but the Door/Window dialog box has a "Manage IFC Properties" option at the bottom of the Tags and Categories section - you can add your own properties and schedule them at your convenience. Any particular reason that approach did not work for you?
In our area the common practice is to assign a hardware set to the door (that's _one_ variable to take care of) and then let the spec book handle the minute details described above. This looks like a far more flexible approach than trying to maintain all that information inside ArchiCAD on a per-door basis.
But what you're looking for is absolutely doable. There is a recent post on this forum that describes how to modify a door marker to include hardware set number, and that variable could become an IFC property, it's up to the user.
