AutoText Building Material Classification setting

gdford
Advisor
We really need to autotext the assigned building materials classification setting for a single element or from a single skin of a composite or a complex profile.
If Building Materials are going to rule the data - then we need to be able to get our hands on all the building material data from anywhere in the model.... its bim afterall
Keep up the good work!!!
Lots of cool stuff in A25

Dear Gary,

Thank you very much for sharing your idea about it!

If I understand correctly, the wish is about using autotext to call any Building Material's classification properties for any object/construction element from anywhere (floorplan/section/elevation/detail...), is that correct?

Looking forward to hearing from you!
Best regards,
Minh

yes - and to be clear this autotext feature really needs the capabilities to zero in on one skin out of many, from composites and complex profiles, and give us the ability to label "the ID" and/or, "the name" and/or, "the Description" and or, "the classification" of the building material that is associated with the single skin.
Also..... Building Materials should be able to have custom properties which should also be available for a single skin in the same way.
