Hi, is there a way to output model information to csv through a measure? For example, output all walls on level-1 (I know there are other ways to get this information, just uses as an example here).

I am essentially asking if there's a way to output information that can be shown through RegisterInfo when applying a measure. Instead of just showing these information on the measure window, is there a way to export it to csv or other external file format. Thanks.

Here is an example that exports schedules to CSV file. You could adapt that to export constructions, surfaces, or any object you want. While this is making a report, if you don't need the SQL simulation results you can make it a model measure which can be used with Apply Measures now.

As a second example here is a SketchUp Plugin user script that writes a CSV with high level space and space type information.
