DWG and IFC Export

Question

Who would find it useful if we could export a DWG or IFC using a class's 'other name' i.e. it's description?

 

So if a class is called 'Bobs Bits' but it's description is 'A-EF_25_10-M_Wall'...export as 'A-EF_25_10-M_Wall'.

 

Adding the description column to the Organisation and Navigation palette would also help enormously.

What about a script to temporarily switch the name and description, do the export, and then switch them back.

 

The probable limiting factor is that I think descriptions can have many more characters than the Class Name.

The idea is to use the description as the ‘compliant’ name.

But yes a script would be useful if it does not mess things up like the class mapping tools do currently.
