I’m a relatively new Rhino user, using the software to design and produce manufacturing drawings. I’m trying to create a Bill of Materials for a project. In the past, I’ve used other software like AutoCAD or Solidworks where a Table functionality exists - is there a similar function in Rhino? Other users I’m working with end up creating a table from lines and text objects, but for large tables, this becomes unwieldy.
There are no native tools in Rhino for tables as you describe them.
Perhaps there is a scripting or Grasshopper tool for this sort of thing.
Another person with more scripting or Grasshopper skills can probably answer that.
You could try Peter’s tools:

apart from that, you could use grasshopper to read an excel file and place the text in a table.
