Hello All, I am working on making Bills of Materials with Block information. I use tubing as a main component in my data extractions. What I would like to do is be able to extract the text overwritten length that I dictate from the all dimension leaders with the same part number, and add them to get an overall length of tubing used in the assembly. For instance if I have two blocks, both with the part number "tube 1" but one has a dimension leader where I overwrite 5 (inches) and one has a dimension leader where I overwrite 6 I would like the data extraction to show "tube 1" with 11 (inches). Much appreciated!
I have found some really great lisps that do a great job of adding a series of numbers in (dtext, mtext, mleaders, etc), but have not found a lisp that will add all if commas are being used. I would like to find something that will add all types of text numbers (dtext, mtext, mleaders, etc) with commas and allow me to insert the sum as a dtext or mtext. Any help would be appreciated.
dreaspring posted a topic in AutoCAD Drawing Management & OutputDear Help, How can one add numbers in text strings that are in seperate blocks or dynamic blocks with pull down menus? I can get a sum of numbers in a text string to add up, but once it is in a block or dynamic block with pull down menus they don't all add up. How can one bcount dynamic blocks with pull downs? Many thanks, dreaspring:?
