Component values use for further calculations in Classification & Properties.

Any idea how to use such component values for the further calculations in Classification & Properties?


I am facing several problems while completing my BOQ documents via Archicad. Wish GS should come up with fully exchangeable and interactive data format between Elements, Components & Surfaces.

I really need to have an answer for all posts regarding ( Scheduling ) in Archicad cuz its importance even in traditional way not GDL extended features.


I am not sure if I understand your question. Element Properties & Classifications are, as the name implies, on single Element basis. You can't do further calculations of multiple elements in one element's properties. But you can set additional properties to an element which can be derived from one or more already set properties of that same element. Classifications are one further step for correct data exchange.

For further calculations of multiple elements properties you need to use schedules. You can set a schedule to calculate and display composite skin calculation results. Here a quick sample:



Archicad 4.55 - 25 | HP Z840 | 2× E5-2643 v4 | 64 GB RAM | Nvidia Quadro M5000 @ Windows 10 Pro x64

Here are the same schedule scheme settings:
