Wall assembly listing... I think the real question was to see a text listing of all the materials that are in a wall assembly. Is this something possible? At our office, we are trying to build a schedule, but we cannot control the order of the items. We are also trying by tag but we cannot acces the layercompound structure. Can we try something else? Let me say that Uniformat information is intended for preliminary, not for construction documentation.
"UniformatClassifications.txt" file found in the "C:\Program Files\Revit Architecture 2008\Program" folder. This file holds assembly data information that can be used to tag model elements. Example below of a Basement Wall Assembly:
A2020 Basement Walls 3
A2020100 Basement Wall Construction 4 -2000011
A2020110 Basement Walls - CIP 5 -2000011
A2020120 Basement Walls - CMU 5 -2000011
A2020130 Basement Walls - Wood 5 -2000011
A2020200 Moisture Protection 4 -2000011
A2020210 Foundation Dampproofing 5 -2000011
A2020300 Basement Wall Insulation 4 -2000011
A2020310 Basement Wall Insulation - Rigid 5 -2000011
A2020400 Interior Skin 4 -2000011

Uniformat Assembly Codes
You can assign a Uniformat assembly code and description in the Type properties of all model elements. When you click the Assembly code value, a button appears. Click it, and a dialog appears containing a hierarchical list of Uniformat codes assigned by R.S. Means. The list is filtered automatically by category. For example, if you are looking at the type properties of a wall and click the button to view the Uniformat codes, you see only the Uniformat codes related to walls. You have the option to choose a different category or all categories to see a different set of Uniformat codes.
When you select a code and click OK, the code appears in the Assembly code property, and the corresponding description appears in the Assembly description property.
Assembly Code and Assembly Description are schedulable fields. As a result, you can create a schedule that groups components by Uniformat code (see method for using Uniformat Codes below).
Adding a Uniformat assembly code to a type property:
Select the model element, and click .
Click in the Assembly code value box. Click .
Navigate the Uniformat assembly code hierarchy, and select a code. To see codes for other categories, select a value for the Show Classifications For list.
The Assembly Description field updates after you click off the Assembly code field.
