C04 Drawing Material List Methods

There are two methods for generating the material list on the drawing.

The standard method is to automatically draw the list as a block of lines and text.

The second method is to put the data in attributes of the title block or another user-defined block.

The attribute block method is dependent upon using the same title block name and attribute names. If your title block design has been stable for a long time and you would like to continue using it, you can still do so.  If a new title block is used with different attribute names, then projects using that title block will need to use a different configuration file than projects using the old title blocks.
