RfE: Generate Report in User Units


#1

… and not in internal imperial unit (= inch) only.

Doing the math shouldn’t be a big thing.


Sketchup Pro 2016- Generate report 2.0 not working

This has been pending so long that one starts to wonder if Trimble really cares about customers outside the U.S.A…

Anssi


#3

I wrote a script to fix that until Trimble make it ‘fit for purpose’…

If it can’t be added, it should be replaced with only metric units… :wink:

Sorry TIG, it doesn’t really converts.

This ist the original report.

This is after converting

This is what I would like to have. The spreed sheet was made before I found the report. The only thing it needs is to classify the typ by m, square meter, cubik meter or pieces insted of importing IFC-Standards.

Construction.skp (918.0 KB)

This is the model the report is made from. Please play with it.

@Barbara
Thanks for the error report on my Converter.
There is clearly something awry !
Did you get/nstall the very latest version from the link ?
For me it’s OK - your SKP Generates a CSV Report and then my Plugin Converts it into ‘m’ just fine…
E.G. The first row = Model/Ground Slab ‘Entity Volume’ in column G is 255993.3860025 cu" in the original and 4.195 m3 in the converted version.
However, I see your converted version doesn’t do what mine does - the volume is ‘-’ so I suspect that it’ a locale issue ?
I suspect it’s a locale issue.
I use ‘.’ as the decimal point - do you use ‘,’ ?
Also ‘,’ in descriptions etc can throw off the column converting…
BUT it should be trapped for in the code, but seeing the " at the start of your first column suggests that something is going wrong… I do not see that at all.
EDIT: I just noticed that your DE report uses “ELEMENTVOLUMEN”, and my EN SUp uses “ENTITY VOLUME” - so some locale versions will fail to find/convert the volume…
Also the first column title is NOT called ‘PATH’, so that messes up too…
I can correct these…
Can you give me your original CSV and converted CSV files, so that I can compare them with mine.
ZIP them and PM if appropriate.
Can we continue this debate at the Plugin’s home-page on http://sketchucation.com/forums/viewtopic.php?p=552533#p552533
I see you actually want the output data in a very different format anyway.
I can write a simple script for you to directly export that limited data set to CSV - e.g. arranged by:
layer, type, area-m2, area-perimeter, dimensions[m[ of X, Y, Z, volume-m3 etc…
But let’s discuss this separately…

It have updated my ReportConverter to v1.5
http://sketchucation.com/forums/viewtopic.php?p=559611#p559611
It should now avoid trips caused by the Generated Report having different headings in various locales…
And convert Lengths and Volumes properly in the other language versions of SketchUp.

@Barbara please try this - I think it’ll now report properly in m2/m3 in German…
Feedback welcome…

Haha… yes, it’s been fixed.
