Not able to change catalogue item after been placed.
Say you place a Beam |Steel and then need to change to Column|Steel.
Can we be able to change the Data Instance name type?
can you tell me a little more about the workflow ?
In what situations do you want to change a beam that you've placed into a column? What percentage of your projects would you say that happens on?
Because it's related... do you find yourself wanting to change a steel beam/column into a concrete one?
As the user here are new to OpenBuildings and have not used catalogues or any BIM.
So user are not aware that they have even selected the correct data group instance, so then we are asked to do an MTO and the items are all on the wrong data instance.
So could be any Data instance not just Beam to Column but brace vertical to brace horizontal, etc....
We could change the data in AECOsim.
I'm trying to understand how they are placing them without knowing about the correct instance. Are they placing the element using the Beam and Column tools? Or are they placing forms and then assigning data to them?
