I'm trying to automate our work flow. I need to be able to place incrimental numbers for which I've found Lee Mac's numbering suite.http://www.lee-mac.com/numinc.htmlhttp:// I am placing numbered lamps for a lighting control network.Every lamp in the network has a unique number (from the numbering suite). I am trying to automate the creation of nodes. Each control channel fed from a controller can manage around 50 lamps, so the control line is wired from the main controller to a number of network boxes each of which can accomodate a maximum of 8 lamps. I am looking to create a tool which would group 8 lamps together automatically and insert a numbered network box in between them. If posible I would also like for the connecting wires to be drawn automatically so I can build a network by simply placing lamp numbers over drawn lamps on an architectural drawing. Meanwhile all this information needs to skim off into an excel sheet or some other database so I can automate the creation of quotes and bill of materials based directly on the current design. However I'm pretending that isn't a problem yet and just trying to make the drawing part automatic. Any help on this would be much appreciated. I will be able to design schemes in a couple of hours rather than a couple of days if this is posible......?
