I would like to use SW3D to plan the electrical equipment and layout of a home (e.g. placement of wall switches, wall power outlets, lights...). Currently, I can place light sources, switches, outlets etc. using the library items. However, i cannot attach any additional information about their functionality (e.g. for a switch: switches light xyz). Furthermore, I would like to have an attribute for a structured numbering (actually, I am "mis"using the naming field for that) and maybe one or two other attributes.
I would use the csv output to generate a list of electrical items which I can process further. Actually, I am planning our KNX house automation system using SH3D exported data.
It would also be a great idea to do the electrical wireing planning with SH3D (connecting light sources, power outlets etc. to the power distribution cabinet; calculating cable lengths using some rules (e.g. cables should be run horizontally / vertically in a wall).
Please feel free to discuss this use case further if this feature request is accepted.
