Why do I see duplicate columns and beams on my schedule?

I'm working on my schedule and I realized that all my columns and beams are duplicated.

Is there a bug or what else can it be?

No, but you need to exclude "beam / column segments" from the schedule.

It's a bit counter-intuitive and I think whoever PM or dev is responsible for this is plainly wrong. But I digress...

If you have a rule "all 3D elements" in your schedule you have to explicitely exclude the segments.

Runxel, firstly, I thank you for your response. Then, I need to ask you something about common sense, if I place 1 column and 1 beam on a plan, and my schedule shows 2 columns and 2 beams, something is definitely wrong. I would not try to justify their wrong because only making it right can we move forward.

I need data form all new elements (wall, slabs, etc.) on my plan, not only columns and beams, that is why I cannot discriminate columns and beams only.

Kind regards.

Thanks.

Have a look at your schedule criteria.

You either have to specifically tell it to include a 'column' and 'beam', or tell it to exclude 'column segment' and beam segment' if you want ALL elements.

 

You will find that if you open a file that had a schedule created before segmented beams and columns were introduced, in a version of Archicad that now has segmented beams and columns, there will automatically be an addition to the schedule criteria (even if the schedule has noting to do with beams and columns).

Move your schedule from component section to elements section. Had the same problem and this was also solved for a user in obe of the older topics

As far as I can remember, you can't move a schedule from one section to another, you have to re-create it.

Even Element schedules can have beam/column and beam/column segments - my image was from an element schedule.

So it should just be a case of being specific about what you want to schedule in the criteria, no matte what type of schedule it is.
