Custom Properties in ALICE Pro


UDFs or Custom Properties are powerful tools in ALICE to control the construction data flow within ALICE and from other platforms such as Primavera P6, Autodesk, and Bentley applications. 

Custom Properties allows users to import all necessary material quantities, cost code information, fixed durations, zone/building/level, and other BIM parameters that can be used for auto-grouping, organizing project  WBS, and developing parametric recipes. 

There are two options how to create Custom Properties in ALICE: 

  • Add Custom 
  • Import BIM
