I am working towards a final goal of creating custom schedules for Block-Based MV and Parametric parts.
The issue I have is creating custom columns in the Schedule Style Manager.
I open the Style Manager under the Manage Tab; expand Schedule Table Styles; And created a new Schdule Style.
I added Multi-View Part, and Multi-View Block Reference to the "Applies To" tab, and then click to the Column tab, and get no option to add columns. It is "greyed" out.
I can add the Quantity Column, but that's about it. Even when ALL options under applies to is added, I still cannot add columns.
I have a screenshot attached. Any ideas whats going on here?
I am running AutoCAD MEP 2014 as part of the Building Design Suite 2014.
Solved! Go to Solution.
Did you start with an AutoCAD MEP template or a standard autocad template. Looking at your attachement i don't see the standard schedule which leads me to believe that you might have started with another template.
I did in fact create my own Templates for my drawings. We have x-ref's, page set-ups, layers, etc. set up in these templates.
I thought we had used AutoCAD default templates to create these from, and copied them over.
I assume there is some pre-loaded information that was not copied over when we created our own templates relating to the column options for schedule styles?
Thanks for your time,
I would check and see if you have any property sets that are in your template that apply to both mvparts and mvblocks. Because your scheduling both in a single schedule you will need to have a property set that applies to both. If you only have property sets that apply to just a mvpart or to just a mvblock then that is your problem. You need a property set that applies to both.
AH-HA! It all makes sence now.
One more question if you have time.
I have a 3D model turned into aBlock Based MV-Part.
I assigned a Name, Size Name, Etc.
To populate my schedule with this info, I need to create a new Property Set Definition with this info and add it to the Schedule Style?
You could create a new property set or you could just read from the style based property set of the part. What i mean by that is that when you created the mvpart you had to assign it a type. That type creates a style when the part is inserted into the drawing and that style becomes a property set. You can create a schedule based on the style property set. So if you add an air terminal to your model you should now have a property set called MvPartAir_TerminalStyles in your drawing. Just schedule this property set and you shouldnt have to worry about creating a new one.
