I have seen some posts on this, but not a lot of solutions. I am generating some layouts with Document User Text that I need to print from Grasshopper. Is there no “out of the box” solution for this? Ideally, it would:
allow file path & filename input (instead of standard print window)
allow multiple layouts to be exported at once, perhaps as a single PDF, but multiple is fine.
MUST be rasterized, since my layout uses some images.
Thanks in advance for any replies - I’m up against a deadline on this one.
I’ve consolidated some updates here which are an improvement. it’s still needlessly complex, but hope it helps you. I’ve been using this system to procedurally create a series of data derived drawings to aid engineers designing infrastructure. The python components have tooltip help so please refer to that.
So far this can:
create layouts and update them
add details to layouts
list existing layouts
delete list of layouts (if you make a mistake it’s a pain to manually delete more than several layouts!)
There are a bunch of settings for details scale, and display mode and raster vs vector, which will sometimes not work. Views are currently only possible create plan (no perspective views etc)
