Accounting for Siding Trim in Materials List

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

I'm just getting used to Chief Architect, so I've probably missed a setting somewhere. However, where do I go in preferences to account for items such as siding J-channel, finish trim, ect.? I am trying to make my material lists as comprehensive as possible, and am not sure how to do this. Thanks!

First thoroughly study the Materials List section of the Reference Manual. Settings that directly contribute to the ML come from Roof Plane defaults, room dialog box settings and tabs, and the dialog box settings for individual materials and how they are assigned to walls and roof planes via defaults. There is too much to know to communicate it in detail here (my fingers would get sore).

 

Adopt a habit of really looking hard at each Default Setting and roof, wall and other dialog box settings and input boxes, there lies your salvation.

You have to include those things in your model before they can be counted. If you want J-Channel, there needs to be J-Channel in the model.
