Access Geometry info inside a Symbol for Worksheets



REQUEST: add criteria to the function INSYMBOL, or allow symbol criteria for other functions besides COUNT(), or create a set of symbol functions that allow worksheet processing of symbol geometery.

Is there anyway to single out a symbol type in a worksheet to call up specific info about that symbol type? IE: the volume of the solids in a symbol. i don't think there is, hence posting in requests. let me know if i'm wrong.

how i imagine it would work:

=volume(s='symbol_name') returns volume for all the 3d geometry inside 'symbol_name' for all layers. and =volume(s='symbol_name')/count(s='symbol_name') returns the volume of all the 3d geometry inside a single instance of a symbol.

or maybe:

=criteriasymbol(s='symbol_name', volume(t=xtrd),1) returns the volume of all the extrudes in the first instance of 'symbol_name'

or something
