Using a spreadsheet of X,Y,Z values to set position data

Recommended Posts

Hey al,

Is there a way to use a spreadsheet of X,Y,Z position data to populate the appropriate X,Y,Z fields of a symbol, fixture, or any object?

For example, a designer i work with gave me an MA3D file created in 3D but i need to turn it into appropriate lighting plot paperwork. I have X,Y,Z data for every finxture and want to use an easy copy and paste to position all fixtures correctly in the drawing.

I have tried using a lightwright data exchange, report functionality listing the X,Y,Z data of each fixture, and tried to create records with no luck. any time i populate the fileds in a spreadsheet, the changes do not get reflected on the fixtures. Any tips? Thanks!
