Bug when adding windows/doors on walls, the schedule in Archicad 25 double the walls

Alba
Participant

Hello,

 

When I am creating a schedule for measuring masonry on a project, Archicad 25 multiplies the walls that have windows or doors! When I measure these same walls for the exterior finishing, the information is correct either if I have windows or not. See below the example. Thank you!

Check the schedule type - is it Elements or Components?

I had a problem with double beams when my schedule was under "Elements". When I moved it (created new one) under Components, it showed correct qties.

Yes that looks like what it might be.

 

@Alba , you appear to be doing a 'Surface' schedule, but you are asking for length, height and floor area.

That will be trying to calculate the front, back and edge surfaces.

 

Try an 'Element' schedule if you just want wall quantities or a 'Component' schedule if you want quantities of individual skins.

And when you make those screenshots of the Scheme Settings Dialog, make sure both Criteria AND Schedule Field settings are visible.

The schedule settings are below. I found out that if by chance the window/door is in front of another wall, and this one connects with our own window's wall, this one gets affected too. I added IDs to each wall so we can understand better what is correct or not.

Try putting brackets around the materials.

Without them you are looking for all walls that are AAC Block and anything else that is Cement block.

Rather than any wall that is either AAC Block or Cement Bock.

 

There is a subtle difference.

@Barry Kelly and @Miha Nahtigal 

Thank you guys, that's exactly that! I moved the schedule from Surfaces to Components and now is giving me the correct quantities. Thank you! 🙂
