All my Subsription Content is currently accessed via the Toolbox in Toolspace.
Can this content be put on a Ribbon panel (under the Plug Ins tab for example as in screenshot) for ease of access?
Just open CUI and make new commands whose macros call the same commands that are called when you execute from the Toolbox tab. Once the new commands are made, they can be drag onto panels (existing or new.)
Attached some toolbox screenshots of the items I want to put on the ribbon, I'm not entirely sure what command/macro goes where and would be grateful for some guidance.
Neil, as these are external commands you will need to add new commands into the CUI for this.
As Civil3d is aware of the commands this makes life a bit easier so add the command to the interface Rbd & Genioimport etc, however I'm not sure how you will get it into the Tab as I haven't had to do this yet Iv'e only done this by creating a Toolbar and converting it to a ribbon.
Here's a video on how to do that, Neil. As an added bonus, I also show you how to fix your mistake when you type the command name wrong the first time.
Tim, many thanks for taking the time to do the video - it's much essier to follow the CUI steps via this method.
I've a few other routines that I'll also put on the Riboon now....
Typing RBD only seems to work after running the importer from the toolbox first - does something else need to be loaded on startup??
Sorry, I didn't even check that. Use this code for the macro:
^C^C(command "netload" "C://ProgramData//Autodesk//C3D 2013//enu//Data//Reports//Net//boreholes.dll");rbd
That will work if you are using the default Data directory for Civil 3D. If not, you'll need to replace the folder structure in this command.
No problem - thanks for the revised code line
