Need help with Attribute extraction for BricsCAD
« on: February 02, 2020, 09:05:58 PM »
This is a sample of a block that I have. The part highlighted in red is the block, the parts highlighted in yellow are the attribute tags in that block. What I would like is to be able to create a table where I can draw the "DESC-S" AND "PTNO-S" attributes, count the number of similar blocks in the same drawing and put the information into a table. I need this as I use several numbers of the same blocks in a drawing, and I don't want to count each part manually.

"count the number of similar blocks"

I do have something that will read up to 5 attributes deep and create a table, its being developed so happy to try out one of your dwg's as I need random test dwg's.

I do propose a small charge for it as it has taken a while to develop.
eg Block=Door has attributes Colour, handle, size.

Door Black Silver 820x2040 25
Door Black Gold 820x2040  23
Door Silver Silver 820x2040 13
