  1. This looks great! I have been looking to do the same thing. Have you tried to have a data tag automatically linked to this objects that will show in your drawing a unique #? That is something I would like to be able to do, in addition.
  2. I see. So the tag data name field and the object name are completely separate?
  3. Ah. I see what you did. It seemed like it should be simple, but it's more simple than I realized. Would I use a simple data tag that is somehow linked to the worksheet to introduce the name on the drawing? Could that also be linked to a record format for the other data I need to record?
  4. How can I generate a cut list automatically from a 2D drawing? I just want to draw shapes, give each a unique code that shows up on the drawing (with the shape, like a data tag) and simultaneously puts the objects dimensions into a spreadsheet. I have retrofitted the space tool to do something like this, but would love to have this as a simple tool without all the retrofitting and extraneous information that comes with modifying the space tool.
  5. Have you had a chance to look at my file?
  6. @Pat Stanford Here is a sample part of my file. The whole thing is much larger, which is why I am looking for a way to streamline the data input as much as possible. Reconstruction Family, Land -cutsheet test.vwx

  8. @Peter N take a look at Elements CAD for Vectorworks
  9. @Peter N The closest I have come is by repurposing the space tool. If you use it to create your shapes, or convert your shapes into space tools, then you can also create a worksheet that directly lists the sizes of the shapes.
  10. @ Did you ever figure this out? I am looking for the same thing. I only need it to create a cut list from 2D shapes.
  11. @Pat Stanford Thank you. This seems far more elaborate and advanced than what I am trying to do. Sorry, but I think I need to have things a bit more basically laid out for me. When I draw rectangles using the rectangle tool, I need a way to do 2 things: First, I want to have the ability to enter our (previously) assigned item number, and have it be linked to that object and show up on top of that object (like a data tag). I also want that item number to get entered into a worksheet at the same time. Second, I want to have that objects width and height to automatically show up on the same worksheet in their respective columns. I have linked text to records and created spreadsheets before, but I have always had to manually enter the dimensions myself. It seems like an unnecessary extra step. Do the rectangles have to be turned into something different, first? I have created a work-around that uses the space tool, but it has way too many other options/extraneous info, and this is something will be doing a lot of this, basically forever. See the attached image for my space tool work-around. Mark
  12. I'm pretty new to marionette. What are the nodes called that copy the dim data from the object, and how do I attach them to an object?
