Steps to connect to the BIMAXON ICS server for Autodesk Navisworks users

1. Choose a classification system from the drop-down list.

2. Select a table in that classification system from the drop-down list.

3. Browse the tree structure to find the class you are looking for and select it.

4. At this point you have three options:

a) You can create a new property manually by entering the name of the new property.

b) You can select a property from the BIMAXON properties list by clicking the  button.

c) Or you can select an existing property from the drop-down list.

5. The Value text field allows you to create different types of property values.

6. Auto-numbering will start from the number entered in the ‘AutoNumber Start at:’ field.

7. Click the Set button to set the values for your selected elements.

NOTE! Elements must be selected before adding a new property and value.

Steps for using the BIMAXON classification system

There are four types of scripts – {0}, {1}, {2} and {3} – to help you create combined values. You can use scripts within any word combinations. Simply write {0} and the tool will add to your chosen property value the index value of only the class selected in the tree. 

{0} – adds the index value of the class selected in the tree. 

{1} – adds the name of the class selected in the tree. 

{2} – adds a number to the last value. This lets you auto-number elements by increasing the previous number by +1.

{3} – adds the current date and time.

Some examples of how it works:

Script: {0} – Hello world Result: 23-17 13 15 23 – Hello world
Script: {0}-{1} Result: 23-17 13 15 23-Wood Casement Windows
Script: {1}  Result: Wood Casement Windows
Script: %%%{0}-{1} Result: %%%23-17 13 15 23-Wood Casement Windows
Script: Hello{0} Result: Hello23-17 13 15 23
Script: Hello{0}world Result: Hello23-17 13 15 23world
Script: Hello {0} world Result: Hello 23-17 13 15 23 world



To fix the number of digits in the numbering script {2}, specify the number of digits with a : (colon), followed by the letter D and your chosen number of digits.

Here is an example for auto-numbering with three digits.

Script:  {2:D3}

Result:  001, 002, … , 010, 011, … , 100, 101, …

And here is an example for a class title and auto-numbering with two digits.

Script:    {1}-{2:D2}

Result:  Wood Casement Windows-01, Wood Casement Windows-02, … , Wood Casement Windows-10, Wood Casement Windows-11, … , Wood Casement Windows-99, Wood Casement Windows-100, Wood Casement Windows-101, …
