Schedules

Anonymous
Not applicable
This is a long shot as I dont think it can be done...but maybe I am missing something?

If doors and windows can identify what zone they are related to, can objects be aware of what zone they are in?

I'd like to create an FF&E schedule on the basis of rooms - in theory this is the kind of thing BIM should eat for breakfast.

Ideas?

Sure; has always been possible.

In your element schedule of (filtered) objects, just add the zone name and/or number from the 'General' list under Available Parameters for the scheme settings. Objects will then be listed with zones.

If you make the zone name/number be the first scheduled field(s) - by dragging them to the top in the Scheme Settings, you can then sort by zone and in the schedule window itself you can make the zones be 'headlines' (grouping titles). If you schedule BOTH zone name and number, then click Settings next to headline to group the first two parameters as the headline. You'll end up with something like the attached - which uses just the delivered "Object Inventory' scheme for the US template.

Thanks Karl,

Easier than I thought, but
I have two Zone layers (one for building footprint, one for rooms). Can I control which one is used? - my problem is its using the wrong one! I ahve renamed layers so the desired zones list first alphabetically - no luck! Any other ideas?

As far as I can remember (and memory is getting thin these days), there is no control when there are multiple overlapping zones.
