I'm struggling with composite schedule in wall. I created some composites but when I schedule them by Buiding material/Composite/Profile -> Name -> Thickness there are missing a lot of materials form created composites. For example I think that list shows only material for outside to de midle line of the wall, then exclude double materials (gypsum borad) etc.
Same again. There is no any combination with flags, unchecking "merge uniform items", or "keep components together" or any other that can make nice schedule with composite materials that have two or more same materials in its list.
I read a lot of forum topics, but nothing about this issue.
I think the schedule you have set up is fine.
Just don't merge uniform items.
Barry everything works fine if I have only one wall, or just one wall of every type of composites. But if I have two or more of them, shedule merges all layers under one wall type. See atachments.
In your example try to duplicate the same wall and see if schedule changes.
The same thing here. I'm just trying to put the same composite structure as it is in the composite editor (by the order and structure), but the program have very bad planned behavior.
For those who are saying to not to use "merge items" or "keep it merged, is ok", I don't see what's your point. If you can't solve and help this guy, then keep it as suggestion, and try to improve the next version. Which apparently doesn't happen.
Just keep in mind that those drawings and schedule are going to the construction site, and worker needs to read them as easiest as possible. That's the point of BIM not just to spill out some data from software. So if you have the concrete block, and mortar from both sides, your schedule will spill out: 1. block, 2.mortar, and that's it. Instead of 1/mortar, 2/block, 3/mortar.
And one telling to create 2 different materials as a workaround. Really, for that I would rather do it by hand... Sorry if I have been harsh with my answer, and although this forum is great source of help and knowledge, some answers are simply just taking the limits.
