      Hello everyone!

      I’m trying to enter the GDL environment to understand if I can customize an object! My idea was to create an object for a piece of furniture from which to automatically extract data on the length and width of each single component of the piece of furniture and then insert them in an abacus.
      It’s possible to do it?

      Thank you

      I guess you would have to script (in the master or parameter script) something that calculates the length of each component.
      These values could then be saved to parameters and these can be listed in an interactive schedule.

      I have no idea what “an abacas” is, but if you need the data in an external program you can write it out as a text file.
      But you really need to know what you are doing in GDL – this is not for a novice.
