I wanted to import 70 SAT files into Fusion 360.
It took 16 minutes.
I’m not a kind of person who is patient enough to endure such repetitive labor.
But, I knew Dynamo could help me for solving this.
Would you like to see how I solved it using dynamo?
< 1. How to create a text file list of the contents of a folder >
I put the 70 SAT files in a folder. and I created this list into a text file.
< 2. Bulk SAT Import : multiple files at once using the TXT file >
You can use Escape Sequence “/n” to split the multiple line - single Item to each Item for editing sting from the txt file.
!! note that !!
When I used the String Node to write Escape “/n” , it didn’t split, but Code Block worked well. I don’t know why.
< 3. Alignment of Geometries using Relative Coordinates >
When the Geometries are heavy, you’ would better move them as transforming their Coordinates System instead of transforming geometries directly.
< 4. Export to SAT >
Don’t forget use ’ Flatten Node’ for putting all geometry items into the single SAT file.
(Of course, my script had already been flattened before transforming)
