Importing your program data
You can load custom program names for your project by placing a CSV file with the following format in your Documents\Arkio\Import\Programs folder:
You can also add additional columns for numeric values if you'd like to import volumes based on the area requirements for the project:
The first column ProgramName stands for the custom-named programs you like to load (11 different program colors supported). Quantity is how many of these volumes you want. Area is for the required area (meters), Width and Length (meters) if you have precise size requirements, and Height for the required height of that program (meters)
You can leave the Area column blank (or 0) if you like to use Width and Length values or leave Width * Length columns blank to get a square volume of the required Area
An example CSV file can be downloaded here.
After you close your CSV file and put it in Documents\Arkio\Import\Programs you can open Arkio and go to the program mode and use the import button on the bottom left to update the names or load your program brief requirements into the scene. Arkio only supports 1 CSV file in this location at the moment so please move or rename the extension of old CSV files if you'd like to load a different program into Arkio.
Once loaded, you'll see all your program shapes in front of the table as organized stacks of your chosen categories, you can then move them onto the worktable and stack them in any way you want.
