Property Sets

  Recently a question was asked on the AutoCAD MEP forums about how to put the elevation of a Mass Element in a property set definition when neither the location or the elevation was available as an automatic property.  You can view the original post here.  Since this was very similar to a post that was covered previously on this blog it was an easy solution.  First...

I get a lot of questions on schedules and property sets and instead of reinventing the wheel I thought I would point out a set of 4 videos by Jay Ayala of Autodesk.  Enjoy.   [video link="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QfgesH1dJr0&list=PLsTrqxAkk1TWeB9n8iOITvSxfqQCOiqMU&index=1" width="100%" height="350px" type="youtube"]   Concepts   [video link="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dtfalQ62oxI&list=PLsTrqxAkk1TWeB9n8iOITvSxfqQCOiqMU&index=2" width="100%" height="350px" type="youtube"]   Property Set Definitions   [video link="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lqMO47tiH0U&list=PLsTrqxAkk1TWeB9n8iOITvSxfqQCOiqMU&index=3" width="100%" height="350px" type="youtube"]   Tags   [video link="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1h8ziA115XM&list=PLsTrqxAkk1TWeB9n8iOITvSxfqQCOiqMU&index=4" width="100%" height="350px" type="youtube"]   Schedules    ...

  In the last post we looked at how to add an undocumented property to a property set definition.  This time lets try to add a formula based location property to a space object using the method from the last post. [frame bgcolor="#DDDDDD" version="light"] RESULT="NA" On Error Resume Next Set AcadApp = GetObject(, "AutoCAD.Application") Set MEPObject = AcadApp.Activedocument.Objectidtoobject("[ObjectID]") RESULT= MEPObject.location [/frame] When this property definition is created and made visible there is no information...

If you heavily use property sets then at one time or another you have found the need to schedule a property that is not readily available via an automatic property definition.  For example when creating a pipe system you can assign it a system family (commonly known as group) that will allow different systems of the same family to interconnect.  Systems that are not of...
