Producing a worksheet with settingout data extracted from the drawing

Recommended Posts

I have a drawing in which I have placed many Stake Objects, each has an x,y and z co-ordinate. I want to create a worksheet to contain this information as well as the Stake Object ID to produce a Setting Out Database to be used on site. Can anyone help?

i have just tried this, and it can be done. But you will have to have 2 steps.

use VectorWorks to make the report of the stake objects. This is easy, go to the menu bar and choose Tools > Reports > Make Report...

choose the stake object and choose the information you want to get.

Next step is to get the Xcenter and Ycentre of each.

You can tell the worksheet to do this, using the paste function command.

Hi Archoncad,

I have managed to create the worksheet but I can not get the paste function to work. I select a field and paste " =Xcentre()" but I do not know which criteria to use to display the required x or y co-ordinate

Hi Pat,

I actually used the copy and paste function within VW not typed it in manually, and infact in the UK version it is spelt correctly............
