I am working on a project to create a glass window with different colors and I am stuck organizing the different parts for water cutting. I believe the reason is that I have some kind of basic misunderstood with what are date trees and how to use them.
What I want to do is this: I have a list of breps with a specific color, area and Id number and I want to move them into a matrix of rectangles to print them. Each of them has to include the id number, area and a color sample.
The problem is that in the process the list of breps and the list of colors end in a different order and they don’t match anymore. My doubts are:
- How can I keep them connected in the process?
- Can I have a tree with lists of different components (i.e. a tree with breps, text objects, materials) that keeps all the information together while I am moving or scaling the breps?
- In case this is something basic that I should have known by now. Could you suggest me resources to learn more about it?
I added some pictures and my files in case it helps to understand me better.
Thank you very much.
