Hardware Schedule

Recommended Posts

Anyone know the simplest way to create a schedule that includes hardware? I'm trying to add manufacturer's grab bars to a fixture schedule, but I see no place to add it or to create a custom schedule that includes hardware.

What's the problem? They should automatically go into a fixture schedule.

It must be a Manufacturer Library issue. There's no option to include it in a schedule. In this case, it's a Delta grab bar. Unfortunate, as the Chief grab bars are hideous for residential design.

I don't have the Delta catalog.

 

You should be able to make a new symbol and specify it as a fixture.

Just to clarify, it all depends on how the symbol was created.  If the symbol is a fixture or furniture item, it can be placed into a schedule.  If the symbol is a hardware or millwork item, it can't.  You can tell what type of symbol it is by placing it into a plan, selecting it, and looking at the status bar.

 

You can convert a symbol into another type by selecting it and using the Convert Selected Into a Symbol edit tool.  Just make sure to choose the Symbol Category that you want it to be.

Thanks, Dermot. That's what I did. I hadn't known that hardware and millwork can't inherently be placed in a schedule. Is there a reason for this? At least for hardware?

The only reason is that we haven't added in the necessary code to put hardware objects into schedules.  In theory, with some of the schedule improvements that we have made in X12, this should be easier to do in the future. 

 

If this is something that you want the program to do, then you should submit a feature request.  In your request, you need to clarify which type of hardware objects you would like in the schedule (free standing hardware versus hardware attached to things like doors and cabinets).  You should also ask for any specific information you want included in the schedules.  In addition, you should absolutely include a sample plan or picture showing us what you want and how you want it displayed. 

 

The number one problem with 99.9% of the feature requests we get is that people do not give us enough information about what they want.  The other big problem is that they never actually send us a request and somehow think that if they mention something in passing in a random forum thread that we will automatically log a feature request for them.
