Items Properties and specification

Properties and specifications

Information relating to an item appears in two different panels; Properties and also Specifications. Both of these panels can be visible when working with items.

Specification Panel can also be placed under the Item Panel to save on screen space

In the Properties Panel following information can be found:

  • Item number: Automatically generated number indicating where the item is located in the Item Group Structure.

  • BIM ID: Optional additional user code for the item

  • Name: Name of the item. 

  • Price: Usually item budget price. Only available for Users who have write access to Price

  • Save: Saves changes

  • Price date: The date when the budget price was obtained. Only available for Users who have write access to Price

  • Price comment: Any additional information regarding the budget price. Only available for users who have write access to Price

  • Reference: Free text field for different uses

  • To be modeled: Tagging of items to be represented in the model. If this is not checked, the item will not be available for Linking or Synchronization through the the Add-Ons for Revit and ArchiCAD. The item must also be set to To be modeled to be included in BIM validation within the dRofus client program.

  • ASE: (Architecturally Significant Items) Is normally checked for items that have special requirements in the design and technical installations for the Rooms that the item occurs in. These items are usually important to identify in an early phase of design.

  • Responsibility: Associate the item to a Responsibility Group. Responsibility Groups is a way to allocate who is responsible for planning and updating the data for an item, but not necessarily who is to model the item. It may, for example. happen that the architect will model items across several Responsibility Groups.

  • Budget: Associate the item to a selected budget group.

  • Tender Group: Associate the item to a Tender Group. (only applies to Users who have write access to Procurement ).

  • Default product: Indicates a default Product for all occurrences of the item. For more information, refer the chapter regarding Products.

  • Note: Optional comments for selected item.

The fields in the Properties Panel are inbuilt fields which are the same in all dRofus databases. The Specification fields, however, are Project specific and may be modified by the Project administrator or by dRofus support.
