#TASK Export Flat Pattern 2018 - Assembly

Hello all,


I was wondering if anyone uses #TASKs 'Export Flat Patterns'. I have and it works great when I insert individual parts. However it says that it can also export flat patterns from assemblies. Does these mean that I can simply insert an assembly only an it will go through all the parts included? When I try this it doesn't work, saying that I need to install the reference extractor. I did this but any time I try to drag a file in to it, it says 'Failed to load some references. Please see log for more details' and nothing happens. So if anyone could offer any advice that would be great.


Alternatively, I see that Simon Rafferty created a really interesting macro (attached) that achieves what I'm after, but it doesn't seem to work with 2018. Has anyone got that working? As an added bonus, do you think I could make the BOM that this macro produces also give a custom property from my parts called 'Bends'?


Thanks a lot guys.
