[Equest-users] Import CAD in detailed data edit

I generally only extract the polygons to a new word doc by means of cut and
paste. Which means I still create all spaces/zones. I suppose I should get
into custom libraries to speed up the process further. Do you feel the most
efficient way is to just deal with the glob? Or go cutty-pasty on it?

I would highly recommend doing all geometry in the wizard. If not you
will need to create each space/zone by hand which will be incredibly
tedious and unnecessary. If you are worried about the clutter of
schedules, materials, etc... i would recommend deleting them in the
input text file.
