Unable to subtract BrickLink order from custom set

Recommended Posts

Hi,

what I did:

- made custom set and import some design into it

- placed an order on bricklink and paid for it

- went to custom set / import parts dialog

- set "External Source " to BrickLink

- click on [BrickLink order] button, allow acces to my orders, tick my (the one) order and click red [Subtract] button

- nothing happened, custom set left unchanged

 

Repeat all the steps but click on red [Append] and got increasing of parts in my set.

 

Can it be non-working because of status "PAID" of my order? Will it work for some special order status, e.g. DELIVERED?

Is there a way available to subtract sets or dump BrickLink order to CSV file for future subtracting?

 

Thank you.

Does the order contain parts not in your list? In that case it fails, but the error messaging definitely needs to be improved.

No. My order made and placed with rebrickable "buy parts" functionality.

I didn't see any errors on subtraction - just some spinning icon and no changes on completion.

Is there a way to get CSV/XML file for placed order so I could be able to write subtraction script by myself?

I forgot to say "Hello" :)

I think I found the source of problem:

I wanted to build two identical models so I create empty list and import MOC twice into it.

Then I clicked on "find seller" and select some seller with "bulk" label on it. I didn't notice what it means :D

Now I have a lot of extra parts in my first ever order :)

It will be nice to have clear explanation of "bulk" or write next to seller how many extra parts I get from this seller :)

Below are results of custom script which checks extra parts quantity (I am lucky):

EXTRA: 2780,0,2 - need 4, extra 56
EXTRA: 3020,71,3 - need 6, extra 4
EXTRA: 3023,28,4 - need 8, extra 2
EXTRA: 3023,71,2 - need 4, extra 6
EXTRA: 3023,72,4 - need 8, extra 92
EXTRA: 3024,71,8 - need 16, extra 4
EXTRA: 3070b,71,2 - need 4, extra 96
EXTRA: 3665,72,2 - need 4, extra 4
EXTRA: 4733,71,2 - need 4, extra 16
EXTRA: 60470b,71,2 - need 4, extra 20
EXTRA: 60474,72,2 - need 4, extra 4
EXTRA: 87580,28,1 - need 2, extra 18
EXTRA: 98585,71,4 - need 8, extra 2
EXTRA: 99780,72,2 - need 4, extra 6

I'm not sure, but there are sellers that don't sell by single piece, but in minimum ammounts. For isnatce the 2780 in your example, seems to go by quantities of 60, the 3020 by the 10 etc.

Thank you for explanation.

Now set math does not work for me so I have to use Python script for remain parts calculation.

Should I publish it somewhere to help other users?

Unfortunately, the BrickLink store terms around bulk/minimum buys are not available to Rebrickable so you should double check your carts before you buy from BrickLink.
