Example: Use control numbers to indicate the erection order

This example shows how to assign control numbers to six concrete walls. As four of these walls have the same cast unit position, you cannot make a clear distinction between the cast units based on their position number. That is why each wall will get a unique identifier that indicates their erection order at the site. The erection order also affects the order of shipping. For example, the wall number 1 needs to be shipped on top of the delivery, because it will be erected first on the site; the wall number 2 should be the second on the bundle, because it will be erected next; and so on.

The following image represents the desired end result.

Erected as 1st

Erected as 2nd

Erected as 3rd

Erected as 4th

Erected as 5th

Erected as 6th

To assign control numbers to the concrete walls:

  1. On the Drawings & reports tab, click Numbering settings > Assign control numbers to open the Create control numbers dialog box.
  2. Select the six concrete walls.
  3. Define that you want to assign control numbers only to parts in the numbering series S with the start number 1.
    1. In the Numbering list, select By numbering serie.
    2. In the Prefix box, enter S.
    3. In the Start number box, enter 1.
  4. Define that you want to use the numbers 1–6 as the control numbers for these concrete walls.
    1. In the Start number of control numbers box, enter 1.
    2. In the Step value box, enter 1.
  5. Define that you want to first number the walls with identical z coordinates in the order they appear in the positive x axis.
    1. In the First direction list, select Z.
    2. In the Second direction list, select X.
  6. Click Apply to save the changes.
  7. Click Create to number the concrete walls.

    Each concrete wall gets a unique control number, as shown in the following image.
