I’ve been making a dynamic dining set for an event planner. I’m trying to make things as simple as possible as his team have no experience in 3d modelling and want to just drag and drop components. So I’ve made this dynamic component have all their standard options (height, size, #chairs, Type of chairs, table cloth, etc)
Now they’re also looking for a way to do a report to count all the components because sometimes they have 20-30 tables with different amount of chairs.
I’ve tried looking at Model Info and Generate report, however it counts each copy as 1 rather than give a total, and some hidden components (of the other chair types when not select) are included in the report. I’d like to avoid having them generate a report and then add a formula to count the repeats of names and exclude Hidden components.
In my screen shots, I’m showing my model with 8 Regular chairs, 5 Ghosts chairs, and 0 Napoleon chairs, yet the model info gives me the hidden ones too. Also, even the last number of the copies in the report are not accurate, I guess because I need to purge each time, otherwise if I have 10 chairs, delete and then copy another 10, the last chair # is 20.
Does anyone know of a way I can get a report with the total of visible components? Or any simpler solution to this.
