multiple classifications

Is there a way of setting more then one classification (of the same classification system) in a object? Example: from the "archicad classification v2" put the classes "door" from elements and "wood" from material in a wooden door, so that we have bot information inside one object.

Yes, there is a setting within an option set property that allows for multiple options, via this button. I don't believe you can assign more than one classification to an object, so utilizing the properties as you've described seems like the next best thing.

No, you can classify it in multiple classifaction systems tho.

Yes, i think that this could be a good way of classifying things. Like, lets say i am doing the early part of the design of something, then i want to, simply put, make a space and fill it with all the equipment that is needed in that space (but only in the information level), like if i plan a living room area and then i put informations that this place hlneeds to have a fireplace, a couch etc... I am from Brazil, and here we have a classification system called NBR15965, so i thought to use these AC's class systems, but now that i cant do that, maybe i'll try to come up with some properties (in the case of the example, create a option set with all the equipment i can put on some specific area that i had defined on the class systems, WAIT, CAN I DO A OPTION SET PROPERTY WHERE I COULD SELECT MULTIPLE OPTIONS?) Just come up with the caps ideia now lol

IMHO, the recommended approach is use a separate classification system for Elements (function) and another for e.g. materials. E.g., use the main Archicad classification mainly for functional description (and mapping to IFC schema) and use a separate classification system (or "table") for other aspects, such as cost breakdown, material breakdown etc.. Don't mix and match two separate aspects in one system.

 

The default Archicad classification > I would only classify elements as elements and use the Materials branch only for Building Materials. And the Space/Room branch for the Archicad Zones.

 

That approach is in line with ISO 12006-3 and is also the approach followed in most classification systems: one value possible from each "table" (e.g. Uniclass, Cuneco, Co-class, Omniclass, SfB, ...)
