So I’ve experimented with the Master_GDL, and I don’t think it will do what I need.
On a project, the material codes are selected by the designer. There can be >100 selections, each with their own code (see example in my second to last post). The materials are NOT object specific: the same material can be used on doors (leaf, frame, glass), walls, objects etc. Therefore, we need to list the code when we schedule out our elements. I cannot figure out a way to do this in schedules inside Archicad. I suppose I could export the schedule to Excel, and run a formula in there – but it would be very handy to be able to extract this somehow inside Archicad.
Maybe the addition of an ID and Description field within the surface itself – similar to building materials?
I’m kind of stuck.
