WORLD COORDINATE Extraction Information GDL Issue?

Anarchiteckt

Hello everybody,

I have to coordinate 22 project on a building field.
I created a Site-model and placed 22 Instanz from the GDLObjet of the ArchicaRd library (Baugrenzen).
I placed a ObjectWorld coordinate for every Building-area.
This Instance show me the right Coordinate on the plan.
I wanted to extract this coordinate in a interactive list for the coordination.
I created a interactive list (see Capture d'écran 2020-09-17)
I am really surprise because can see the information on the plan but not in the List.
(see the Result in the Attached files)

Do you have some Idea why it doesn't work?

Best Regard

Gwen

Dear Gwen,

Thank you for sharing the issue and I am very sorry about the experience!

Unfortunately, the Coordinates of the World Coordinate Dimension object cannot be scheduled.

On the other hand, the Coordinate Dimension object is capable of showing the coordinate results in Schedules.

In order to schedule these coordinates, follow the steps below:
1. Change the World Coordinate Dimension objects to Coordinate Dimension
2. Open the Schedule Scheme Settings and add “Library Part Parameters…”
3. Browse for the Coordinate Dimension XX.gsm and add the Custom Coordinate X, Y and Z parameters.

Please let me know if this helps with the issue!

Best regards,
Minh

Dear Minh,

Your solution works very well.
But we can only display the custom Coordinate in Meter, and i need the Latitude and the Longitude in World Coordinate. (Or may I miss something ? )
Does it mean that we need to associated the Custom Coordinate with a calculated parameter to obtain the right Outpout?

Best Regard

Dear Gwen,

Unfortunately, yes, we'll have to convert the parameter from meters to minutes in this case. The Coordinate Dimension object is only capable of listing the coordinate in meter only.
