Morning all,

My boss came in to this office this morning and was asking to find an "A" type fitting on a drawing which i could not see but found it when using the "Find" Command.

 

We are an electrical engineering company with a lot of work in schools and hospitals and as such we have large cluttered drawings with many different light fittings and sockets in.

 

im using the Find command to help with take-off but is there a better way? also the sockets and switches etc dont have any text just a small drawn symbols is there a way to find all of the occurences?

 

Thanks guys!

How does the find command work if there is no text?

If they are blocks you can use Qselect, Block, Name. Command line will tell you how many selected, or the properties box.

Or if it's text you can still use Qselect.

I would be supprised if all your sockets and light switches did not have a number on them in our office here every socket has a number, you would have a block for a type of socket and an attribute for its number and maybe room ? They may not be visible check block settings.

 

If you work this way then data extraction should be easy.
