Tags & Categories Label 19 - returning wrong info

Scott Bulmer

Greetings, I am using the subject label but it is returning incorrect values. The beam being labeled is 3 1/8" wide but the label is showing 3 1/4", rounding up. The Project Preferences (dims & working) are set to 1/64". Is there some other setting buried somewhere I am missing or is this a bug? Thanks, Scott

What values are set to be displayed in the Label? It seems like it is set to show the Building Material of the Beam, but I don't see such parameter in the Tags & Categories Label.

I see.

It seems like there is a rounding inside the Label that causes this.
Unfortunately the Label script is pretty complicated so I didn't find where it is set and if it could be set differently.

I tried a different approach: I created a new custom IFC Property and I created an IFC Mapping for it to return the same data the Object Type option returns in the Label. Then I selected this new IFC Property to be listed in the Label.
This actually uses the Length Unit setting in Calculation Units & Rules Dialog.
This is good for metric, but I am not sure this will be good for your purposes as well since there is no "Feet and Inches" setting, only "decimal feet" or "decimal inches".

Hi All,
Unfortunately we did not get a response from Scott so we could not figure out the source of his issue.
