True Volume of multiple objects

Post Posted: 14.08.2008 18:58

I am looking for the true volume of a group of timbers. It is possible to get it for individual members in D-CAD ( 2-08 ), but not for groups. Is there some other easy way to do this? I am not concerned with the CG, just the volume.

Thanks!

Joe

I do them individualy and add them manually.

It's long winded but I only do them for the odd trusses.

it would be nice to get the value for active objects.

The position I am looking at has about 400 large timbers in it, so, I'd rather not do it by hand...

The concern is the weight of the timbers once put on a truck, whether it will go over the legal load limit or not. Since they are being trucked a long way, it will be several thousand extra dollars if we have to go to another truck, or, get fined for being overweight.

Hi jmiller,

If I need the volume of individual beams or a group of beams I send the beams to project data and automatically create a list and copy it into 2D. This volume will account for the overall size of a rectangle beam.

In D-CAM you can also use "Object Info" and select "Determine Values". This will give you the exact true volume of individual beams including joinery.

Hi Jason-

I have been using the 2-08 (object info) in D-CAM to get the individual exact weight of each beam, including joinery. The question is, for multiple ones, is there way to get the aggregate volume? In the Project Data, you get the over-all rectangular beam. Normally, this isn't a big deal, since you order the full sized rectangular timber. But there are a lot of big cut-curves, etc in this project, so, it will over-estimate the volume (and hence the weight).

As far as I understand it is not possible to determine values for a group of beams at this time.

OK. Not what I wanted to hear, But, at least it means I wasn't missing something obvious! Cool
