Sawing Table (SAW)

Select all the details in the assembly (solids) and call the SAW command. If before call selected nothing the program will query to select.

After the program is running, the selection can be saved - use the general A>V>C> settings. You can select any type of objects; program will use only 3D-solids and ignore all other objects.

Options SAW command:

SwitchSetOfOptions: Quickly switch between options-set by it number. Switching convenient if, for example, you need to insert to drawings columns-set #1 and to Cutting program columns-set #2.

TUne: This option open dialog window or next query to select setting.

In the settings dialog you will find all the same options as in the -Saw option. And besides in the dialog are available the general settings of all plugins A>V>C>.

In the process of working, the program displays the sizes of the found solidities in the console. Then a list is created with the given columns. The list will automatically be copied to the clipboard. You can insert it into any document or spreadsheet.

Next, will be called “Past To Table” command for insertion data into the AutoCAD table. If this is not required - just press Esc.

Plugin works only with objects such as 3D-solid. If you use blocks, then explode them before invoking the command SAW or use block editor. The plugin is designed for use in the design of sheet material details. In these details there is always the main plane on which determines how to measure it. This algorithm does not work for spheres, tors and shaped details. The plugin (without AVC_Names plugin) cannot measure sweep and therefore not suitable for curved parts. If program cannot measure the detail then the plugin will display a warning window and problem details will be painted red. For remove red illumination start any other command.

Follow the messages on the console. There may be program messages.


This command variant has many options in the object query, to configure the further operation of the program. This option of the command when you select the TUne option does not open the dialog, but prompts you to enter the settings from the console. In addition, the command disables the dialog for selecting a table. The list of columns in the console is edited as a string separated by semicolons. To return default value enter single % symbol. The list of column headers is not editable. You can use the console version of the command to write macros and create your own buttons.
