Have you found an interactive way?

If you can do it interactively, then you can record a journal to have the blue print for your automation code.


If there is no interactive way, you will have to work from scratch.


  1. Get the labels from the drawing
  2. Get the associated drafting objects, if there are any
  3. Get the modeling object of the associated drafting object
  4. Get the text
  5. Create the PMI

I think this would be the way to go.
