Hello,

is it possible to find out how many groups you have in your project?

Thanks

Yes, you would probably have to write an Add-On using the API to get that kind of information.

Are there any existing add-ons that you know of that can do this?

Not that I am aware of, but I have never had the need to know how many groups in a file so I have never gone looking.
I can't imagine that there would be though.
Groups can be automatically created if you model continuous walls, but model exactly the same walls as single wall and there will be no group unless the user creates one.
So it will take a lot of user control to ensure you have the correct groups all of the time if you are trying to count them.

Hello,

How difficult would this be to do?

Probably best to ask in the developer section of this forum.
I have no idea when it comes to creating add-ons.
