Using this plugin you can quickly get list of 3D-solid dimensions. This is useful when you are designing products made from sheet materials (furniture), and when you need to create sawing (cutting) table.
Program measure solids, regardless of how they were arranged in space. Program can find identical solids and can group them. Results can be inserted in Windows clipboard or in Autodesk® AutoCAD® table. You can insert results from clipboard to Excel or to cutting optimization program (like «Сutting3»). You no longer need to measure many dimensions and insert it to table manually. You can avoid a lot of mistakes and your work will be reduced to a couple of clicks!
In addition the plugin can:
- Adjust sort order
- Write to table parameters of solids: Layer, Color, Dimensions, Volume, Count
- Numbered list in order. The numbering of parts can be saved with the solid ones and used by the "Smart Leader" plug-in (AVC_Leader)
- Exclude from the list of details requiring detailed drawings (not just a box and curved solids with holes, etc.)
- Adjust result column list, create combined columns from several parts parameters
- Multiply the number of parts by lot size/quantity of assemblies
- Mark the direction of the texture with an asterisk after dimension digits
- Quickly switch between several options-sets
- Tune all settings in convenient settings dialog window
- Tune command directly in AutoCAD console. Thus you can make you custom buttons and macros to use different variants of SAW command.
- The program is able to interact with the plugin AVC_Names to obtain the names of solids , additional properties Mirror, Sweep and Texture
Plugin can work with 3D-solids only. It not works with Meshes, Surfaces and Blocks.
This SAW program is the perfect complement to the LAY program. LAY used for curved details and SAW for boxes. LAY prepare drawings for CNC milling machine and SAW prepare table for sawing (cutting) machine.
With the program free of charge the command works with tables "Paste To Table" (PTT) and "SplitTable". As you know, you cannot just copy the cells from Excel and paste them into AutoCAD. This defect is partly compensated by the command "Paste To Table". With its help, you can insert in the AutoCAD table any texts separated by tabs and line breaks. Including data copied to the clipboard using the "Sawing Table" command. And the command "SplitTable" will help to send to the printer a table that does not fit into one layout.
According to your request I can optimize the command for the standards of your company. Offer your price.
Plugin compatible with AutoCAD 2012 and newer, x32 and x64. Tested on Autodesk® AutoCAD® Mechanical, but all over vertical must work. There is a English and Russian localization. Headings of standard columns are translated into Italian and German.
