In the Style Manager>Multi-Purpose Objects there are Classification Definitions that can be useful for many purposes. But you have to add them one by one. Imagine if you have an existing list of many items in Excel or some other format and you have to add them manually.

Tip. ClassificationDefinition is the command to start the Style Manager with only the Classification Definitions.

To install and run ClassificationDefinitionTools do like this:

  • Download the plug-in.
  • Extract to a folder somewhere locally on your PC.
  • Load ClassificationDefinitionTools.dll using the NetLoad command within the application.
  • Use the either of two commands ClassificationDefinitionImport or ClassificationDefinitionExport. (Tip. Type Clas and use tab several times)

For example say there is an existing classification like this.

ClassificationDefinitionExport shows the dialog box below. Select a Classification Definition Name in the dropdown list and press Export. This will show the list in the textbox Classification Definition Values. The result is automatically copied into the clipboard so you can paste the result into for example Excel.

The columns are separated by tabs.

The first column shows the level where 1 is the top level.

The second column is the name.

The third column is the description.

ClassificationDefinitionImport shows the dialog box below. If the Classification Definition is existing it appends the values. Copy and paste a bunch of values from Excel, Notepad or some other editor. Notice that the format must be tab separated.

After importing this definition the result in the Style Manager is as below.

Contact us for any questions, wishes or comments. A lot more can be done to automate the work with AutoCAD Architecture, its verticals and AutoCAD products in general that can help both a CAD Manager/consultant/reseller or the user.
