sorting numbers

Post Posted: 13.12.2007 17:52

Guten Tag out there!

Is there a quick way to get the sorting program to assign a unique sorting number to each piece in the model? Question

We had a situation where three identical pieces had the same sorting number and only two were made. Highly inconvenient when the time came to assemble the building. Surprised Shocked

I've tought of placing a marker on each timber at a different location but that seems time consuming.

Any idea Idea would be welcomed?
Regards
Hansi

I don't understand why it is a problem to make 3 identical parts with the same number?

Allo Planer,

It's no problem making numerous parts with the same sorting number. The problem arises when the shop people are used to old way way of doing things and that was that every timber has its special location in the frame and its unique identifying code. Which meant when you inventory the frame prior to shipping, you check off each piece individually on a list. No counting.

Imaging every car in the parking lot was the same make, model and color. How would you find a particular car? You could use a number, unless all the numbers were the same.

I've thought overnight of a different to set up my list that goes to the shop floor. I let you know if it works.

Kind Regards,
Hansi

It should be enough, giving different names to the parts.

But I think, that cannot be the solution. The shop people should learn to count.
When I once forgot a rafter, my chief told me to bring it along after my normal work time. Twisted Evil
I learned counting very soon! Very Happy

I know, I'm old school that way too. Fix your mistakes on your own time.

I get a lot of requests for individual labeled members as well. Especially with rafters (which are normally a lot of the "same" pieces) we try to put them in some order so all of the crowned pieces are in a consistent order. So each one is cut identical, but you may have a wavy roof if you just choose them arbitrarily out of a stack.

So far, I've just added markers to things that were otherwise identical, and, this works just fine. It is a bit tedious though.

Rumor is in a new version, they will address this...

You need no markers or other processes to make parts different. I think the fastest way to separate parts, is just to rename them. With 'volume_info' you can give them names like "111/rafter_01" "...02", "...03".

caution: you must not change the number in the name ("111/..."), because the program needs it for several specific functions. Behind the slash you can write any name.

Changing the names would cause other problems for me (but probably not for others), since I use the name (after I export the timberlist as a csv into a spreadsheet) to designate estimating and ordering parameters.

But, either renaming or adding markers does not take that long.

Is it really necessary to export a list as csv?

Dietrich's database is a rather mighty tool, and I think, you can make templates for every output needs.

We incorporate it with other information that is already in a spreadsheet format, and so far it has taken a very minimal amount of effort to get things lined up. With the promised estimating powers of upcoming releases though, it will probably be something we can do away with.

Thanks Gentlemen,

I was going to try the marker technique on the next project. Maybe the rumours will bring about some christmas like surprises. Band Santa

Thanks for the attention
Season's greetings to all. Alkohol

Thanks for this tip, Planer. I finally tried this manner and it suits my needs. Very Happy
