Datatag - MATPROPERTYBYNAME(WS_Material, 'MaterialDescription')

Recommended Posts

Will we ever be able to pull material data information into a data tag?

I noticed in order to pull it in a worksheet - command is something like :


=MATPROPERTYBYNAME(B3, 'MaterialDescription')

=MATPROPERTYBYNAME(B3, 'MaterialReferenceID')

=MATPROPERTYBYNAME(B3, 'MaterialManufacturer')




Will we be ever able to do the same thing with data tags?

Can be used to tag materialmanufacturer, materialreferenceID, etc as well. Unless it's a Compound Material in which case you can only return the Description, Mark + Keynote fields as far as I can tell


Thank you for letting me know! Posted a formula for regular geometry as well.


Will be very useful in the future for detail call outs (creating a custom set). Originally intended on using symbols with custom records for annotation and callouts.

I also noticed a custom record option in materials - it would be interesting to see how that works as well! I will keep experimenting
