License activation

See activation instructions here: JTB World Apps Licensing

First test usage

To make a first test on how it works take a look at 'Sheet Set Creator Template Sample.xlsx' found in this location.

%programdata%\Autodesk\ApplicationPlugins\JTB Sheet Set Creator.bundle\Contents\Resources\SSCTest

Copy the SSCTest folder to for example C:\SSCTest for testing purposes.

Start the Create Sheet Set command from the Plug-ins/Add-ins tab or run JTBWSheetSetCreator on the command line.

Browse and select 'Sheet Set Creator Template Sample.xlsx' when asked for a file.

Review the result in C:\SSCTest and open the Sheet Set in AutoCAD.

Excel template

The empty Excel template 'Sheet Set Creator Template Empty.xlsx' is found in either of this location.

%programdata%\Autodesk\ApplicationPlugins\JTB Sheet Set Creator.bundle.bundle\Contents\Resources\SSCTest

Here are the sheets explained.

Sheet Set Properties

The following properties are available:
Sheet set name
Sheet set description
Folder to store sheet set data file (.dst)
Create a folder hierarchy based on subsets
Page setup overrides files
Project number
Project name
Project phase
Project milestone
Sheet storage location
Sheet creation template
Sheet creation template layout
Prompt for template
Default Plot Location
Label Block For View - Drawing Path
Label Block For View - Block Name

Note: because AutoCAD displays empty field text as "----". To avoid that, you can let Sheet Set Creator replace empty property by an alternative empty text = Alt+0160 (Type "Alt 0160") or something else.

Note: Spaces are not a solution because AutoCAD Sheet Set has tendency to empty up space-only text.

Sheet Set Custom Properties

In the "Name" column specify the names of Sheet Custom Properties that should be created and in the "Default Value" column specify optionally the default value.

If the "Default Value" is "<Auto-Calculate-Total-Sheets>" it will be replaced by the number of sheets created for the sheet set.

Sheet Custom Properties

In the "Name" column specify the names of Sheet Custom Properties that should be created and in the "Default Value" column specify optionally the default value.


The following fixed properties are available:
Sheet Number
Sheet Title
File Name
Template Layout
Layout Name
Sheet Description
Revision number
Revision date

After the Category column any Sheet Custom Properties can be added. The name must match the name defined on the "Sheet Custom Properties" sheet. To simplify this use the button "Generate Custom Property Columns (skip If it exists)". 

Callout Blocks

Specify Drawing Path and optionally Blockname (leave empty if using entire drawing as callout block).

Model View Locations

Specify Model View Locations Folder Paths


Take a copy of 'Sheet Set Creator Template Empty.xlsx' and fill out the sheets.

Start the Create Sheet Set command from the Plug-ins/Add-ins tab or run JTBWSheetSetCreator on the command line.

Select the .xlsx file when asked for a file.

Wait until the command is ready, time to complete depends on the number of sheets to be created.

Optionally: After having created a Sheet Set DST file it can also be checked in to Vault.

Merge new sheets to an existing Sheet Set.

A command prompt version of JTBWSheetSetCreator that give user options to choose when sheet set dst file and/or drawing files exist. Use command -JTBWSheetSetCreator2. 

-JTBWSheetSetCreator command gives user no option. All existing files will be overwritten as default.
