Recommended Posts

Items on material list.. Where do they get their names....

 

Attached is an issue I've been having....

1) There is no chance I have 14 rim joists, but there is a 100% chance I have 14 floor joists.

 

2) Not sure why "joist lumber" instead of "Floor Joists - Lumber"

 

 

Is there any way to trace SF124 to a location?

What exactly is "Cannot find: SF" and where could it be located on the plan?

You should probably post the plan but...

 

I'm guessing the "Cannot find" item is sitting somewhere in your plan where the program can't tell where it belongs. 

 

Re: the rim joists, I'm guessing that maybe you created copies of a rim joist and so that's how they're reporting. 

 

And re: the names, I believe those are automatically created by Chief based on where they are created and I personally don't know any way of changing them other than clicking on that item in your material list and simply changing the name there.

This estimating is pretty disappointing. Some items are padded house wrap, by some unknown amount.
