BS1192/ISO19650 compatible Class Libraries - Update

Recommended Posts

The NBS team have just announced an update to their Uniclass tables. 


The updated tables can be found here https://www.thenbs.com/-/media/uk/files/zip/uniclass/uniclass-all-2021-01.zip?la=en


As part of our ongoing preparation of Vectorworks resources for our clients and customers, we have just updated the BS1192/ISO19650 compatible class library previously issued, namely Uniclass Table EF to v1.8 and attach it for your information and comment.


All amendments and revisions to classes are noted in Red.


The NBS team have not deprecated any classes in this latest update, but we will note these in grey when the time comes.


There is a 'Read Me' class also in the file, to identify the version of the table, along with commonly used filters as previously discussed.


Uniclass Table Ss is currently in preparation, and can be emailed on request.


The attached table is v2020.  It was felt that issuing v2020 and letting you convert to v2021 did not pose any major technical issues.


As before classes are prefixed with the Discipline code 'A-'.  Use the Batch Rename command to change this code.


If you would like any other tables in any other version of Vectorworks; need help uploading to, or configuring your workgroup folder; or would like be included on our mailing list, please do not hesitate to contact us via the forum.

Thought I would share with you two new class libraries for use on your Vectorworks BIM projects, or just if you would like to adopt industry standard class naming.


Attached are:


Uniclass Table Zz v1.0




Uniclass Table Ss v1.21


Due to the sheer quantity of possible classes in the Ss table, I have decided to issue them in sections, or rather by group.


The Uniclass system comprises four sets of numbers.


These correspond to Group, Sub-Group, Section, and Object.


The Ss classes attached are limited to Group and Sub-group, e.g.




Further libraries are in preparation.  In the meantime, let me know if you would like any more libraries, or classes.
