This App is made for carpenters. It works fine with rectangular polysurfaces (like a box), which are not rotated. Maybe it works for other projects too.

The plugin collects name, dimensions and material of selected objects.

Material: Set a material to the layer

Output: f=file, output in a text file to the same folder of the 3dm-file; c=csv-file; t=Rhino text object; b=clipboard. The Rhino text will be set on the layer partsli.

Cutting addition: addtion units for cutting first. If the value is more than 0, a second list for cutting is append to the list.

How PartsList works:

  1. copy selected objects
  2. explode blocks
  3. read object properties
  4. sort objects by thickness and material
  5. same pieces will put in one line
  6. delete copies
  7. output in clipboard, Rhino text, txt- or csv-file

Objects without name will be selected. After selection you can type a name for the selected object. You can't set a name for objects inside a block, during the command runs.

Condition: This App was made for rectangular polysurfaces and can't handle rotated polysurfaces.
