Definitely something to explore further because I doubt I'm the only one that would love to see this as a possibility. Perhaps they need to be done as morph's as per your original test rather than complex profiles? I do wonder if this would limit the vertical flexibility however.
The application to show profiled steel members would also be really helpful.
I'll jump on this thread with a related issue. I'm trying to create a solution for hedging using the railing tool - i.e. using Inner Posts as plants of different sizes and spcifying planting distance. This should then be able to be quantified simply by counting inner and outer posts.
The 2D symbol always defaults to a size that fits into a 1000mmx1000mm bounding box - no matter which size the symbol is drawn.
I have "plants" that are 800mm diameter and 2000mm dia - all show up as 1000 "symbol"
Screenshot attached with all different options. To the left is the original symbol - to the right is the railing.
Is there a MUL2 at the start of your plant scripts? My guess is that it is scaling it to a unit size so that it can be correlated to A and B. That is what occurs when you save something out of the floorplan.
