Generate beams from an autocad Structure file using Grasshopper connection

Ahmed_K

Helle, 

I'm exploring some advanced grasshopper usage, 

i'm trying to automate the translation of a DWG structure file to a 3D model, 

i suppose that i have a structure file ( DWG ) 

* Beams are represented with centerline + text that indicates beam section dimension, 

 

i keep only centerline and text visible, 

 

Select all text and import in grasshopper, 

 

Select all centernlines and import in grasshopper, 

 

Is there a way to match text with lines in grashopper ? 

 

this may be usefull for big projects, to automate some work.

 

Thanks
