AECOsim Building Designer SS6. Version - 08.11.09.866
Using the BBES data "Place Raceway Hangers" tool, I have placed 24 hangers in my registered electrical design file. I created a brand new part which I named "Cable Hangers" under the "Electrical" catalog type and "apply part" to ALL the hangers but unfortunately, I can find it in the datagroup explorer as I need to create a schedule for them.
Please, does anyone have a clue of where raceway hangers data is stored within AECOsim?
Just to be sure... DataGroup Explorer does not display Parts, as in Family + Part. That aside, for Electrical purposes please try the Output Manager tool instead, referenced in this older thread: https://communities.bentley.com/products/building/building_analysis___design/f/aecosim-speedikon-forum/47716/bentley-building-electrical-v8-xm/107656#107656

Sorry I actually meant the Electrical "catalogue type" with the Hangers as a "catalog item" and also I am currently using AECOsim SS6 but not BBES. Meanwhile, lets leave the output manager manager aside for now, is there a place within AECOsim I can globally select and edit parameters for ALL raceway hangers in one sweep just like one can do with the DataGroup Explorer?
For example, what if I wish to convert ALL raceway hangers type in my design file from Threaded Road M10 to Threaded Road M10 in one go
Ah... I see. Since Hangers use the generic "BBESDATA" catalog type they don't allow unique control via the DataGroup Explorer dialog. However, you should be able to multi-select the Hangers you want to change and use the Modify Raceway Hangers tool instead:
Thanks Steve, sure it does work using this method BUT my end goal is to report or create a schedule of them. As you have suggested above, the OUTPUT MANAGER is the way forward regards that intention.
