Edit project properties

You will need project information, such as project number and name, many times during a project. Update the project properties at the beginning of each project to make reports and drawings display the correct information automatically. All of the fields are optional.

  1. On the File menu, click Project properties.
  2. ClickEdit.
  3. In the Description box, enter a description that helps you identify the model when you next need to open it.
  4. If you want to use another coordinate system for interoperability and collaboration, click Base points to define a new base point.

    Once a base point has been defined, you can select it from the Location by list.

  5. Edit the other project properties.
  6. To define project-specific user-defined attributes, click User-defined attributes.

    By default, you can define:

    • Project comment

    • User fields

    • Execution class

    • IFC export attributes

    • GEO coordinates

    • Status attributes

    • Unitechnic factory location

    The availability of user-defined attributes depends on your environment.

  7. Click Apply to save your changes.

    Now you will get updated project properties in drawings and reports.
