EXCEL file to creat/import/export AEC(UK) Uniclass classes

Recommended Posts

This is very much a work in progress project. I was developing it last year, but I've since not had the time to finish it off.

We regularily use it for creating new classes in accordance with AEC(uk)/Uniclass (Agent-Element-Presentation-Description-View) but it was intended for more general management of the classes.

It works through copying and pasting to and from the excel file and VW Class & Layer Mapping Tool.

I set it up to convert between variations of the AEC(uk) format, for easier selection during drawing or just simplified naming.

Formats supported:

AEC(UK): A-G25:JF1-G-WallBlck-Sec


DESCRIPTION-AEC(UK)SIMPLE: A-G25:JF1-G-Sec (Blockwork walls)

AEC(UK)SIMPLE-DESCRIPTION: Blockwork walls (A-G25:JF1-G-Sec)

SA1-CODE/TEXT/AECUK: G_Bldg/2_FabCm-G25_Wall-:JF1_Blck/A-G25:JF1-G-WallBlck-Sec

SA2-TEXT/AECUK: BuildElem/FabCm-Wall-Blck/A-G25:JF1-G-WallBlck-Sec

SA3-CODE/AECUK: G2-G25-G25:JF1/A-G25:JF1-G-WallBlck-Sec

If anyone is interested in developing this or if possible converting it to VectorScript please go ahead.

I wish I had more time to get into it, but I'd rather put it out there than let it collect dust here.

I have attached 2 versions. One with search enabled (very slow) and one without (not as slow).

Any thoughts welcome.

rename file from .pdf to .zip
