Adds parameter values to elements found in search sets

To create estimates from the model, certain groups of elements must be assigned a classifier code.

  • A classifier is a set of items for which it is possible to determine the estimated cost.
    Example of a classifier position: “Insulation of external thermal insulation of buildings with thin plaster over insulation with slab thickness up to: 200 mm”

  • Classifier code – an individual number assigned to each position
    Example code: “1233456789” or “FER15-01-080-05”

Search sets are created to search for elements based on specific search conditions.

  • Each search set is a position from the GESN (State Estimating Standards), FER (Federal Unit Costs) or the company’s internal classifier.

  • A search set is a set of criteria for searching for elements in a model.

  • Search conditions are a group of model parameter values and categories by which you can find an element in the model

Procedure

 

To add a value:

  1. Click on the “Classifier” function icon
  2. Create a search set in the Search Sets window
  3. Set the search conditions for items in the “Search Conditions” window
    To create complex search rules, use Add Rule and Add Set. To make it easier and more familiar for you, we specifically made the conditions the same as creating filters in the standard Revit functionality.
  4. The “Search” button will allow you to see the search results in the “Elements Found” window: element IDs, their number, and also highlight them in the active 3D view
  5. In the “Classifier Assignment” window, use “+” to add a Parameter Name and Value.
  6. “Assign to set” - the parameter value will be assigned to all elements that satisfy the search conditions of ONE selected search set.
  7. “Assign to all” - the parameter value will be assigned to all elements that satisfy the search conditions of ALL search sets.

To assign a value, you do not need to click on “Search”. The “Search” button is intended only for visual confirmation of the correctness of the search conditions.

“Export” - saves search terms into a separate file format. json.

“Import” - loads the selected format file into the project. json with search terms previously saved in it.
