Isometric Types

One of the questions that has come up recently is – what symbol types can I use?  While I do not have a comprehensive list of types, I did gather a list of the ones used in the catalogs.

To get it, I went through all of the ootb catalogs and exported them to Excel.  Then I was able to remove duplicate items and isolate the types.  If you find yourself doing repetitive tasks in Excel, you really need to explore macros.  This scenario helped me save a lot of time since the exports were all in the same format.  I was able to create a macro that removed unnecessary columns, removed the duplicate entries.

I’ve also posted the final Excel spreadsheet so you can copy/paste from there or add new ones as we run across them.
