BIMx still not letting us drill down to Building material data

I am surprised that Bimx is still not letting us drill down to building material property data; classifications, and custom properties for the skins in composite elements. If I build an Element schedule I can push out to bimx a list of the building material names, but we still can not attach a component schedule to bimx.... seriously.!!
As amazing as Bimx is, it is still just an amazing toy for the client, but it does not yet give the contractor what they need. I am ready to get rid of the drawings, but i have to be able to push all my notes into the bimx model, not just display the drawings in bim. Bimx does do an amazing job of displaying the drawings.... don't get me wrong here... I really like bimx, but i really really really want to be able to push more data into the modeled elements in bimx.

Minh,
I is a disturbing thought to think that giving Bimx access to building material data has not been part of the Graphisoft vision for years. I know there must be a white paper out their describing the current vision for the future of Archicad. I would really like to read it, and I would be more than willing to sign a nondisclosure agreement to do so. Please forward this request to the powers that be.
Thanks,
Gary

Hi Gary,

 

After some discussion with our colleagues, we would like to know a bit more about the situation you are having. As far as we know, you can export Component schedules into BIMx file as drawing placed in Layout. With proper Info Set at exporting, you can link the element in Component schedules with its proper 3D presentation. Please refer to this section of our User Guide for more information.

 

I'm wondering whether this is what you're looking for? If not, could you clarify a bit more on what you want to achieve with some screenshots?

 

Also, we have customer user groups where you can join and share your ideas and feedbacks with us quarterly. For further information, please check out this post.

 

Looking forward to hearing from you!

Best regards,

Minh
