Something I did in plain autocad will work as a workaround
I did some work for a company that insisted the backplate layouts were in plain autocad
What I did was set up a data extraction
Which could find the block then extract all the data and then you can filter the information you want?
I.e.. Attributes /block data and geometry etc.
From this you can get a block x,y,z length and other useful information
This can be put into the drawing as a spreadsheet or exported out as data
This could be set up as a separate list of trucking and din rail used in a project
This does seem like a possible solution. By default we have no length attribute defined. I will need to work on a way to define that. Soneone posted an lsp file to add lengths to din rail. I may also try using regular autocad to see it can automatically get lengths.
