hi all,

i have a Library of Ruby macro that was custom coded for me few years back.

some the task/script is not working anymore cuz of the X12 upgrade.

i would like have this Library upgraded and refresh the Code to the X12 version. and get it working again.

 

the Library was very well and beautifully coded by another guru/ruby master.

But unfortunately, iam unable reach the original programmer to redo this project.

 

im looking for someone that could help and take over and upgrade this Library.

 

Please contact me.

      I have returned to this forum once again in seek some help with ruby and macros.
       
      I have been working on a macro to automate cabinet labels. So far I have a mostly working macro, but I feel like my hands are tied and my eyes are closed. First of all the documentation on chief implementation of ruby and its capabilities it really lacking. And second, I don't have the Ruby terminal. I think this is because I am running Interiors, but am not sure as all Chief says is that there is limited use of Ruby in this version.
       
      Anyways, right now I would love to have a list of all callable object attributes. I honestly don't even know if that is the right name for what I am looking for. I am trying to find a list of what info I can scrape from a cabinet. So, what can I put after obj. (ie. obj.width, obj.type)? I think I could find this by running the selected.names command in the terminal, but I have no way of knowing.
       
      This is my current macro. It is built from parts of a macro from @MarkMc and whatever I have been able to come up with from random trial and error. If you see something I could improve on, I am open to suggestions as long as they have a good explanation with them. Thanks in advance!
       
      Macro:
      obj = owner
      obj = referenced unless referenced.nil?
      obj.depth
       
      type = obj.type.to_s
       
      nf = NumberFormatter.new
      nf.unit = 'in'
      nf.use_fractions = true
      nf.show_unit = false
      nf.apply(obj.depth)
       
      standard_size = 24.0 if type == 'base_cabinet'
      standard_size = 12.0 if type == 'wall_cabinet'
      standard_size = 24.0 if type == 'full_height_cabinet'
       
      depth = nf.apply(obj.depth) if obj.depth.to_f != standard_size
       
      standard_size_height = 36 if type == 'base_cabinet'
      standard_size_height = 0.0 if type == 'full_height_cabinet'
       
      height = nf.apply(obj.height) if obj.height.to_f != standard_size_height
       
      width = nf.apply(obj.width)
       
      nomen = 'B' if type == 'base_cabinet'
      nomen = 'W' if type == 'wall_cabinet'
      nomen = 'T' if type == 'full_height_cabinet'
       
      hinging = owner.door_swing
      label = ""
      label << nomen << width.to_s << height.to_s << depth.to_s << hinging
       
      p label

      I'll new to Chief and have learned that this form might be one of the best resources I have ever used. I am trying to streamline my design process and to do that I would love to be able to change cabinet ends to finished or paneled faster and easier. I tried to make a SP to do this, but I couldn't figure it out. I also thought that there might be a way to do this with macros is a SP, but I know even less about macros than I do Chief.
       
      Any help is appreciated, and if it's not possible that's fine I'll know not to spend more time on this.

      I'm trying to run a .rb file that's on my local in CA by using a marco. Right now I can only get it to read the file. Does anyone have any insight on how I might be able to to this or where I need to look?
       
      Macro: In CA
      File.read("C:/Users - Desktop/scope1.rb")
       
       
      Output: from text stored on a local drive
      rafter_length = (length.to_f.round / 12) + 1
      convert_to_int =  rafter_length.even?
      case
        when convert_to_int == true
        resut = rafter_length
        when convert_to_int == false
        result = rafter_length +1
      end

      Guys, I am starting to find some of the limitations that I see discussed in the forums and am wondering if this is one of those. The current plan I am working on has various footing widths and depths specified by the engineer for the foundation walls. While trying to create a wall schedule that will show each wall based on footing width and depth and when I look at the available macro's under Object Properties for a macro I don't see anything specific to the footing depth. Anyone know if this property exists for a foundation wall?
