    Complicated Tag Issue

    I have a housekeeping pad which hosts several pieces of equipment. When I dress up a pad drawing, I want the modeler to just tag all pads.

    The tag will read out the pad thickness, followed by a list of equipment it's hosting. But these equipment tags are currently all inputted as the pad's Mark.

    I want the pad to "know" what it's hosting and convey the tagging info (Marks) so that my pad tag will read out the info. For example, a 6" pad hosting 3 heating pumps:

    6" PAD

    P-H-01
    P-H-02
    P-H-03

    Thanks for any input.

    Without manually transfer that information over in some way you can't do that. It shouldn't be too bad to do with Dynamo if you have a lot of them.

    Well... you could... if all of the equipment was nested into a pad family... and controlled via Family Type parameters -- but yuck.
