Creating Hoist Layout Stickers

Recommended Posts

Hello All,

I am curious how you all are producing motor layout stickers using VW? After designing a rig

the Hoist worksheet is great for collecting all my hoist info needed X,Y's-Motor type-etc; so

what is the most efficient way to transfer this info onto a sticker that also displays the corresponding motor symbol?

Can this all be done within VW?

I would imagine it would be generating a worksheet in Vectorworks with the info you want, exporting a CSV delimited version of it.   Then use Microsoft Word mail merge (or similar),  with that CSV as the data source.  And format how the labels look/what size label.

Josh, did you figure out how to do what you were looking for?

Not quite,

I'd like to fully automate the process of producing layout stickers.

As of now I use a template I created in Microsoft Word which works fine for smaller layouts but is time consuming. 

I have been turned onto a few possible ways of doing so I'm going to give them a try, ill keep ya posted!

I create a worksheet, export into csv file. then I use the avery.com website to import the csv and match an avery label. Not automated, but I get to fidget with the outcome along the way.
