I am looking for a plugin that allows me to get a total cost of all dynamic components within a model, without having to generate a new report each time.
I have applied a cost to each dynamic component, what may make it more difficult is that there are at least 10 components nested within each component.
I design heat recovery ducting systems and generating a report each time we make a change becomes rather time consuming.
Or if anyone can think of any alternative workarounds it would be greatly appreciated.
There's nothing 'off-the-peg', but it'd be quite straightforward to code something, to process a selection OR to find every instance of every DC in the SKP and extract a 'cost' attribute, finally totaling up these 'costs' in a simple message-box...
It depends on how your DCs are structured and if they all use the same 'cost' attribute key etc.
Do you have a simple example SKP that you could post ?
Hello Tig, simple for you maybe , but thank you for getting back to me so quick. As soon as I get into work tomorrow I will upload an example.
Please find SKP file attached.
What I can possible foresee complicating things is that they use different cost attributes, as you so quite rightly pointed out.
In order to get a cost for the lengths of ducts I have used =(LenZ*cost)/100, where as all other components are just a figure.
If you can provide me with any sort of help at all I would forever be in your debt.

Hi Tig, works a treat : )...no more having to wait for a report to generate.
