Classification Manager Ribbon panel

The Classification Manager is a user-friendly add-in for Revit that allows you to easily organize and manage your classification data across all of your Revit models, no matter which system you need. Quickly toggle between different classification systems to find the one you need and filter the list of available values based on the Revit family category. All classification data used in the process is accessed from an included Excel spreadsheet that is fully editable.

Setup

The first step in using the Classification Manager is to select a classification database. Clicking Setup from the Classification Manager Panel located on the Add-Ins Tab, you can select a default dataset, create a new dataset from the default Excel file, or open the current dataset for editing. Click one of the options to pick the database to use. You can return to this screen to change your selection at any point during the project life cycle if necessary.

Instructions on creating your own classificaiton database can be found in the Excel file, "Classification Manager Database Custom" located in the Classification Manager installation folder.

Assign Classification

Once you have finished selecting the database, you can assign classifications. For elements in the Revit model, select the elements, and then left-click the "Assign Classification" icon. Depending on what type of element you selected, the appropriate tab and filter will be applied to your list of classifications to use. If you have no element selected, you will be given the option to assign Facility classificaitons, which get assigned to the Project Information. The Contacts tab is used as integration with the Autodesk COBie Extension for Revit.

Simply navigate through the tree in the right hand window, select the classification you want to assign, and click the Finish button. You can easily toggle between clasification systems on the left, if your database supports multiple systems.

If your chosen database has been set up to support cross classifying, the "Apply All" checkbox will attempt to assign classifications across the systems available in your database.

"Set COBie Parameters" will assign the classification to the appropriate default parameter used by the Autodesk COBie Extension for Revit, if those parameters exist in the model.

The "Blanks Only" checkbox is a failsafe that can keep you from overwriting any existing data already in the parameters used by the Classifiction Manager.
