Alright, so Im working on a somewhat complex dynamic wall which is intended to be used by designers. It is supposed give them a tool to easily place our walls when planning office renovations.
The dynamic walls are mostly made but Im facing a problem when trying to get an accurate report out of it. The walls are made of copies(instances?) of smaller pieces that theoretically can all be different. (See picture for reference)
The problem is whatever data I get out in the report is only for the first partition. The copies(Or instances?) yield zero data in the report and thats a big problem. One obvious solution would be to gather the first data and multiply it by the number of copies, but since they can be different it wouldnt work. Its entirely possible to explode the main component and then generate the rapport, but any changes after that become tiresome. Not only that but the designer need to be able to select all the components and for some reasons the copies are placed in the layer_0 instead of the same layer from which they originated, which make selecting all the partitions pretty hard.
In other words Im trying to think of a SIMPLE workflow for who ever is using it to easily produce a report, and the fact that it doesnt gather data from the copies is a big problem for me. Hopefully, Im missing something and copies generated in a dynamic component can be extracted in “generate report”?
Thank you for the help and if you have any question I will be glad to answer them as quickly as possible.
