Finish Schedule - Older Method

Red
Enthusiast

First off, I'm not too fond of a finish schedule like this, but I can not get him to adapt, in my opinion, the more modern way of showing it. I feel this style of finish schedule could cause a person to misread a finish, or even me to mess up drawing it. Can this style be achieved with the Archicad schedule? Possibly with it showing an "X" or checkmark in the column? I can not think of a method with Archicad scheduling doing this, but I thought I would ask before spending the time to draw it manually.

Hi Red, if I understand it right I have a solution for you for those dots. Create properties named: Carpet, V.C.T, Concrete sealed... and so on with data type = Option set. Create two (or more) options with "dot" sign and !spacebar" or other chracter from Chracter map. Aply those properties to your rooms.

Then you can create schedules with dots (in my case with walls).

But this solution has its dark side, you have to create new property for each finish.

And also creating shedule as in your picture is probably impossible because of the first line dividing the elements by type.

I woul rather suggest to export Excel schedules from Archicad with all needed parameters and try to a clean them up in Excely through formulas and macros. But only if this is repetitive task because it will take lot of effort to doit.

That is an excellent thought and idea. If I am still forced to go in that direction, I will use this method. I am still trying to get my boss to adjust to the easier/quicker solution. However, the generation gap from his career to mine continues to be a struggle, and understandably so... It happens to each generation, I feel, LOL

Thanks,
