Classification

The purpose of these tasks is to connect objects and processes in the model that maintain various considerations and purposes. For example, one classification theme can be separated by drawing key, phase division, or in example classifications acc. processes and objects, in accordance with a given specification.

Find it here:

The individual class assignments in a classification can be linked to objects in the model. One can thus, for example, connect the objects belonging to the tasks of moving cables, demolishing houses, and/or adding a tarmac. Another example is, e.g., linking objects belonging to one field and the person/company responsible for this field. This way, you can connect information in the model with different classifications, depending on the purpose of the classification. 

In the Insert menu, there is a button for classification that gives you the ability to insert two new task types:

With V770 classification, you get process codes, and with the class tool, you can connect objects.

To connect classes with process tags to objects use the class tool. Here you can select specific objects or if you want as automatic as possible, use the dynamic query dialog.

Installed templates

In the international version, there are no installed templates. 

Input of a classification structure from a text file

If you have your own classifications, you can read these into Novapoint. What is required is that you have a tab-delimited file with a minimum of 2 columns. One column for class code and one column for class description. 

Known error: There is a limit of 255 characters in the code and description field. If you have more the program will stop reading the file.

Export of objects with classification codes

When objects in a model are connected to their respective process codes, you can use these when exporting to DWG and LandXML. For these formats, you set up combinations of classification and description, so that, e.g., DWG layer names and LandXML object name is named acc. classifications. 

Export to DWG.

To produce a DWG file with process codes in the layer name, you must start the function export to DWG on the delivery menu. This functionality is only available here. The following menu bar appears: 

LandXML export

In the same way as for DWG export, in LandXML export you must also set up how the string to be sent to LandXML should look as to code and description.
