Materials, Uniclass 2015, Embodied Carbon and all that Jazz


Recommended Posts

Hello

 

Whilst we prepare an update to our ISO19650/Uniclass 2015 class libraries, thought you might like a useful tip when using Materials.

 

Materials can be tagged with Uniclass 2015 classification and description.

 

Out of the box, Vectorworks ships with whichever version of the Uniclass Pr table was current at the time, so you have to update it yourselves.

 

To do this, either:

 

Add the latest table to your Workgroup folder (good if working in a larger office) (We suggest adding Pr and Ss tables)

 

or

 

Add the latest tables to your workstation.

 

The Uniclass classification tables live the 'Libraries/Defaults/Classifications' folder in the Applications folder on a Mac, or equivalent location on a PC, or workgroup folder location.

 

e.g.

 

/Applications/Vectorworks 2021/Libraries/Defaults/Classifications

 

or

 

/Workgroup/Vectorworks/2021/Libraries/Defaults/Classifications

 

To add the latest table, download the XLS file from the Uniclass 2015 website, and save as a csv file, ensuring the formatting matches the existing Pr csv file shipped with Vectorworks.

The tables should then be available when you click the 'Lookup' button in the 'Define Material' dialog.
