My question/query is somehow related to Tekla which I am not familiar with. Can anyone please provide advice on this "Is it possible for Pro-Steel to separate each phase into lots? (i.e our fabrication and erection priorities?)". Thanks.
Thanks for posting your query in Bentley Community Forum.
You can assign that particular level or phase to Area Class and then by filtering that Area Class you can do further work.
Let me collect more information if this is not sufficient.

Thanks for the prompt reply. With the Area Class, I understand this can be exported along when an *.mdb file is created. But if we export a ProSteel v8i model to an IFC format, does the area class go with the IFC format? or would this work when we open the exported ProSteel model in BIM-Review. Apologies but I just don't know how this phase/lots works when it comes to exporting ProSteel model then going to this BIM-Review thing (*.bswx file). Again, my apologies if this is not the correct place to be asking this question but as I am coming in from ProSteel, just asking with fingers crossed.
Yes, as far as I know, these classes will come over in IFC in the latest Connect Edition of ProStructure.
You can do also some mapping via the ini files for the objects like shapes and plates, located in in WorkSpace\ProStructures\Config\IFC folder.

Just one more thing, about the "other discussion"; where you have noted "The attributes can be otherwise edited in WorkSpace\ProStructures\Config\IFC" - you mean that we can only edit what is currently in the attributes? but for now we can not add that extra line for the Area Class e.g. "Area Class : IfcLabel = @KS_AREACLASS". ? Please advise. (By the way, we are on ProStructures v8i SS8 w/ Microstation)
how are you creating the bswx files? I also need to do this but cant find a workflow for it?
