Export custom properties

Post by Andreas_FI » Tue Apr 21, 2020 8:14 pm

Hi,

Is there a simple way to export a list of custom properties to csv or similar?

I am not a very experience qcad user and trying to figure out a way to create a list of items (e.g. parts, BoM, bill of material etc.) from the objects/blocks in my canvas. Would need this this for planning and documentation purposes of my audio/video/broadcast-technology engineering projects.

I would like to manage relevant data like, serial numbers, cable numbers, configuration details etc.in qcad.

It would be helpful and preferable to have all information and data is in one qcad document without the need to create and maintain separate external lists containing the data.

Thanks for your help!

there is not much what I know about this topic but at least there is a little script which listed and counts the used blocks in Model_Space.
Maybe a startpoint ... :wink:

If a thread is considered as "solved" please change the title of the first post to "[solved] Title...". Thanks!
