LoopCreator is an application that automatically create AutoCAD loop diagram , starting from typical drawings and an Excel project.
The choice of Excel as data source is justified because it is not required any knowledge of relational database to set the data that will be put in the drawings that will be created by the application.
The typicals are .dwg drawings where the engineer will have put text, strictly
not multyline, that
LoopCreator will recognize and replace with the data found in the Excel project.
It is extremely important to consider that the job developed in the past in your company will not be forgotten. In fact, it will be enough to modify some text in your existing drawings to to adapt them to the content of the Excel project.
LoopCreator does not generate drawings, but modify existing ones!
There is no limit in the number of typicals used in the project. the only bond is that they must be in the same folder.
The Excel project must have two worksheets, strictly called "DB" and "GeneralInfo". On the right it is shown an example of "DB" worksheet, where it is possible to identify, in row 1, the texts that will be searched during the procedure of drawings creation. In the example include in the downloadable file (one AutoCAD drawing and one Excel project), they will be created three drawings, that are the number of raws containing data on the Excel worksheet. For the drawing numbering, it will be enough to add a text field, as shown in the example, and assign a consecutive numbering in the Excel worksheet, starting from any value and not necessarily from "1".
In worksheet "GeneralInfo" there will be put all the repetive informations, such as the number of document, name of company, overall number of sheets, etc.
The first column ("A") is reserfed in both worksheets of Excel project, for the typical name and the common part of the file name. The column heading ("TYPICAL" e "SAVEAS FILENAME") is not taken in consideration from the software and can be freely modified.
Simple and intuitive.
It is enough to select Excel file, typicals folder and destination folder. At this point click on button "Create drawings" and wait for the end of job.
Once initiated, the application works in background, leaving the user free to proceed with other jobs.
From 8 to 20 seconds (depending upon the number of information to elaborate) to compile and save a new drawing, that means more than 2000 .dwg per day!!
