Group Vertex Attributes

Post by Nick McK » Tue Mar 10, 2020 4:37 pm

Hi brains trust,

Surely there's an easy way to do this but for the life of me cant find it. I am looking for a way to batch move existing vertex attributes into a new sub group and yet to find a workable solution?

Once again any tips would be appreciated. Thanks

Hi Nick.
Same way with the manipulator but here / is your friend, like grouping in names.4d to create sub groups: "Electrical/HV/Poles" as an example.
1 in the vertex box gets the first vertex only, 0 gets all vertices on a string.
Have you tried the stylesheets I posted up in the surveying sections for export from Leica or Trimble? They keep the user entered attributes on top and push all the metadata under a sub header. They are mostly uniform in the output and take the Surveyor name at the job level and place it as a single attribute on each vertex, among other things.

I've not seen the style sheets Richard. Are you able to point me in their direction?
