General Usage Instructions

If you plan to insert data into a dwg-table, then it can be prepared in advance. For example, take a sheet with an assembly view and a sawing table from your template. The program is able to insert data into existing dwg-tables, while maintaining the design of the cells.

The program can use drawing objects selected before calling the DataTable command. In this case, you will not see any prompts or options. If nothing is selected, the program will ask you to select objects. You can select one or several viewports on the sheet - the program will process all objects visible in them. You can also select one existing empty table - if a output to the dwg-table is configured, then this table will be filled, without any questions. Thus, you can fill in tables on sheets in 1 click.
Do not worry if annotations and other unnecessary objects fall into the selection frame - the program will work only with suitable objects specified in the filtering conditions. After running the program, the selection can be saved - use the A>V>C> Common Options.  In the selection prompt, you will see the command options:
  • SwitchStyle: Quickly switch between presets by number.
  • Customize: Opens the program settings dialog
Then the program can ask for a Multiplier. This will multiply the number of parts found by the production lot size (series of products). May not ask - see Multiplication Request setting. The multiplier is stored in the drawing properties. Even if it was not requested, the amount will still be multiplied by it. By default, the multiplier is 1.
Then the program starts working:
  • Compiles a list of objects to process. These will be the objects of the drawing you have selected, as well as objects extracted from blocks (if configured to extract from assembly).
  • Discards inappropriate objects according to the filter settings. If the program writes to the command line that there is no suitable object, then just change the filtering conditions.
  • If the command is configured to process solids, then the metric update procedure will be invoked for each solid. In the process of work, the program displays the obtained sizes of solids to the command line.
  • Retrieves object properties for all substitutions for the group header and for all configured columns.
  • Concatenates identical rows (if required). Moreover, the program can check the geometric differences of objects and not combine them together, even when all the columns are the same.
  • Calculates formulas, counts sums and totals.
  • Asks, if necessary, in which dwg-table to write the results. This is already running the Paste to Table program.
  • Inserts data into a table, text, file or clipboard.
  • If the dwg-table is larger than the sheet, it creates new sheets with table sections.
Watch the console - all program messages are displayed there.
