How to save comprehensive parts list for multiple models?


Re: BrickStore
#20
That is expected behavior. Only the first model is supposed to be loaded, the other models should only be loaded if they are referenced from the first model. See the OMR spec for a more detailed explanation.

I believe the proper thing to do would be to insert one submodel at the top which just contains references to each other model in the MPD you wish to include. However, some of your submodels have the same file name which will definitely cause trouble. I started to rename them, but then realized that if your MPD is fairly conventional (no wacky meta commands) and assuming you want exactly one of each model in the MPD, then removing every line that is not a part should yield a proper parts list. I did not throughly inspect your MPD (it was quite long, props for the hard work) and compare it to the parts list, but I see no immediately evident reason why it would be incorrect.

Even though I believe the attached model generates an accurate parts list, I would suggest getting a 2nd opinion from someone more experienced than I before purchasing the parts.

Regardless of the above, there are still 23 parts unrecognized by BrickStore (at least on my system) which will need to be manually "Fixed" to get the correct item type for BrickLink.

Hope this helps.
