Urgent - How to export part numbers from 3D files

Hi everybody!

We are working on Cadprocess and wonderig how to directly import the part numbers from the 3D files and extract them into a text/excel file.

We saw it in a short demo but we couldn't replay it.

Anybody can help us?

Thanks for all comments!

Not sure if this worked for you or not, but wanted to post the result from last week so everyone had access.

Macro Export_List

Define E1 as Element
Define myID as String
Define myName as String
Define Output as String
Define Export_Local as String

Export_Local = StripFileName(ActiveDoc.Path) + "\" + StripExt(ActiveDoc.Name) + ".xml"

Select None

Select If Object_Info Exists

E1 = ActiveDoc.FirstSelectedElement

FNew Export_Local

While (Exists(E1) = True)

myID = E1.Info.Id
myName = E1.Info.Name
Output = myID + " " + myName

Fwrite Export_Local Output

E1 = E1.NextSelectedElement

End While

Select None

Message "File Exported"

End Macro

Re: Urgent - How to import part numbers from 3D files

Hi Marino,

IMHO it is not possible to import some partsinformation into the 3D-Model. What you can do is change the data in the structure which is build while opening the 3D-Model into IsoDraw.

After Converting the 3D-Model into 2D you are in the position to export the structue-data e.g. into an XML file.

Is it that what you meant?

Best regards

Hi Markus,

thanks for your reply. I really appreciate it!

In fact, the question was not clear enough.

We usually open 3d files from customers and we are trying to save the BOM list (position and part numbers) in a text or whatever file to use it on other software.

What's the step-by-step procedure? Is there any automatic way to save the complete BOM list in one step.

Thanks and regards!

Hi Marino,

are you owner of the handbook "User's reference" (you can download it from the PTC homepage)?

In the englisch version on page 136 you can read how to set the preferences of an "object list"export.

You can export the structure of the 3D-Model (in opposition of my last statement) as an XML-file (just switch to export > XCF File). You can open this XML-file in every text-editor you want.

Did that help?

Best regards

Thanks Trevor and thanks Markus.

I can now export the part n/ with the callout.

I have another question but I will make a new post!

Thanks again!
