Material List Pro

AutoCADĀ® Attribute Block Manager

A14 New Features

Part bubbles in modelspace can be associated with a specifc layout by using corner markers.  Material from part bubbles within the range of the corner markers will only appear in the material lists of the layouts defined by the exents of the associated corner markers.  This feature makes it very easy to have multiple layouts with a material list on each layout.  Item numbers within the model are updated automatically based upon which layout the part bubbles are associated with.

If an XREF is used as modelspace with the layouts viewing the XREF, the XREF will be opened and the item numbers updated automatically.

Database search fields are now ComboBoxes with user defined drop down lists.

Material list data can now be placed in user defined attribute blocks.  This works great if your title blocks or other blocks are used to display material lists.

A Company ID setting is used so that custom code can be installed for your specific needs.  This is useful for such things as calculating total weights or other values when editing quantities in part bubbles.  Call us to discuss your specific needs.

The program now supports the use of global and local configuration files. Local configuration files are local to a drawing directory and can be used to override the settings of the global configuration file.  This allows program settings to be different from drawing directory to drawing directory as required.
