Parent page: CAMtastic Commands

The following pre-packaged resource, derived from this base command, is available:

Applied Parameters: None


This command is used to obtain information with respect to a group of selected objects in the current document.


This command is accessed from the CAMtastic Editor by choosing the Analysis » Query » Group command from the main menus.


First, ensure that the CAMtastic panel is visible.

After launching the command, the cursor will change to a small square and you will enter object query mode. You will be prompted to select objects to include in the query. Simply position the cursor over an object you wish to include in the selection, and click. Clicking away from an object allows you to drag a selection area, for including multiple objects in the selection. Selection is cumulative.

Continue adding objects to the selection and then right-click when all required objects have been selected.

Information relating to each object will appear, in separate folders, on the Info tab of the CAMtastic panel. Information presented will vary depending on the type of object being queried and can include Layer and Dcode related information.


  1. The order of the folders in the panel is determined by the order in which objects were added to the selection. In order to keep track of which objects you are querying, it is probably better to add objects to the selection individually, rather than using a selection box.
  2. All measurement information uses the current units for the workspace - either inches or millimeters. Units can be changed either from the CAMtastic panel, or the CAM Editor - Drawing Modes page of the Preferences dialog.
