Classification Management

An ARCHICAD model can be described as a central BIM database that stores all project data and makes it accessible to any project stakeholder. Previous ARCHICAD versions have provided a fixed set of Element Classifications, but ARCHICAD 21 introduces a flexible way to classify elements according to any national or company standard classification system, and makes available ARCHICAD Properties that can be connected to any construction element or zone, based on any Element Classification.

Use the new Classification manager to centrally manage Classifications for construction elements or zones: define classifications, set related properties, and transfer them between projects via XML file format.


Assign a Classification value per Classification System in the Elements’ Settings dialogs and the Interactive Schedule.

Classifications (together with their Properties) can be shown on any output, enabling exchange of element-related BIM data among stakeholders.

For example:

Add to Labels and Zone Stamps

Use as criteria in searching and scheduling

Add as Fields in Element Schedules, in the re-organized Scheme Schedule settings interface

Map as IFC properties for IFC model export
