Wall - Add fire rating classification


Hi all,


I am trying to assign different fire ratings to walls and doors and then use a graphic override to show their associated ratings.


I am looking for the 'General Ratings' drop down box in wall selection settings under classification and properties for the fire rating. However, I cannot see this. Does anyone know how I can see these properties for walls and doors? 


Please see two images attached of what I see and what I would like to see.




Your wall is classificated as Wall only inside "Archicad classification - 20" clasificator. This means that if you want to see "General Ratings" dropdown you need to go to "Property Manager" and  make sure "Fire resistance" Property is turned on in all or desired clasificators.

It looks like you are working on a project file which was build in Archicad 20 and/or 22, as the classification states. The second one, which you want, is the Archicad classification V2, which was, I believe, introduced in version 23. You can take a look at this site, which has some suggestions about migrating classifications.

Anyhow, you can edit, add or delete classifications entries by yourself in Property Manager. If you plan to exchange information via IFC make sure that each property is mapped to the correct IFC entry.
