Let me sketch the situation:
I have created a dynamic component which is basically a plate 1x1m with a selectable thickness from a list (LenX has predefined thicknesses, LenY and LenZ are not constrained). I then model using only this component. The plates can have arbitrary shapes but will always have a predefined thickness. Next I generate a report to have my Bill Of Materials. Importing in Excel gives me all the data I need except there’s no way to know the net surface area of non-rectangular plates.
What would be very useful to me is being able to export an attribute in the report which will give me the net surface area of the largest face in the component.
Any help would be greatly appreciated as I’ve been fiddling on this for hours to no avail!
