Cadman Report Tools For Sketchup

Rajib Dey - Editor-in-chief

Cadman develops another useful sketchup extension that is called Cadman Report Tools. This sketchup extension supports sketchup 2015 and sketchup 2016.

Report Tools facilitate the sketchup users to associate and manipulate information on components in their models determined through a simplified CSV spreadsheet. It offers various methods to watch, control and report design information out of a model.

The Cadman Report Tools characterizes attributes on files and components. They read from a CSV spreadsheet having headers and rows of values. The FIRST COLUMN should include a component name or a sketchup filename. The rest of the columns provide information required for each component in the inventory, as for instance cost per unit, power requirements, product numbers suppliers, availability etc.

A simple CSV Header Data file contains two rows. The upper row belongs to the Headers or category fields for every sequential row. The upper row of values is utilized by the labeler to develop the Input dialog, and the second row of values is the default values for the dialog box. The Cadman Report Tools are designed to get input from any CSV file.

Three sample header files exist in the user Plugins/ Cadman Report Tools folder to start your work. The tools read from this Header & Data file to produce forms and reports.

The plugin offers the following Tools:

Generate Report- Creates a report from a user specified dictionary (from drop down list)

Color and Sizes Report- Produces a report of colors (materials) and component sizes (x,y,z)

Batch Label All Attributes- Allocates attributes to components on the basis of a chosen spreadsheet

Make Individual Attributes- Separately allot attributes to components on the basis of a chosen spreadsheet

Product Page URL- Facilitates to choose a component and begin a website from the related attribute

Model Info Report- Creates a text file concerning all layer names and component names inside a file or selection

3D Library- Exports all components in the active file to a 3DLib folder under the existing model

Remove all Attributes- Purifies a dictionary out of a file and all its components
