All model elements in Revit have Assembly Code and Assembly Description type properties based on the hierarchical list of Uniformat codes assigned by R.S. Means. You can add or change a Uniformat assembly code for a selected element type. The read-only Assembly Description property updates to match the assigned code.
Both the Assembly Code and Assembly Description fields are available for creating a schedule that groups components by Uniformat code.
To add or change a Uniformat assembly code for an element type
- Select an instance of the element type in the drawing area.
- On the Properties palette, click Edit Type.
- For the Assembly Code parameter, click the value box, and then click .
- In the Choose Assembly Code dialog, navigate the Uniformat Classification hierarchy, and select a code.
TipIf you are looking at the type properties of a wall, you see only the Uniformat codes related to walls. You can select a different category of codes from the drop-down at the top of the dialog.
- Click OK.
The Assembly Description parameter updates to display the description for the new code.
