Customising Material List - Price & Image column

Recommended Posts

There is so much I have to explore in CA. I just started finding all details about material list. There are two things I am unable to figure out :

 

1) How do I change currency ? Instead of dollar want to use INR, where is the setting?

2) How do I add new column in material list & insert thumbnail/image of material ? ( image is same as what was used in material definition)

 

Thanks

Haven't tested this on X8, but Chief Architect like [many other software] uses currency provided by the OS Regional Settings dialog. To get Indian Rupees you most likely need to set Keyboard to English (India) and East India. <LINK>

 

2) How do I add new column in material list & insert thumbnail/image of material ? ( image is same as what was used in material definition)

 

CA offers plenty of fields that you can add to a material list. Your take offs would not normally have "images". But if you really need this - export to an excel spreadsheet and add image there.

      In X12 I've noticed that when using Structural Member Reporting in a material list, the price column in the list does not appear to be sensitive to whether a "per unit" or "per length" calculation is being performed by the material list.  In both cases, the material list appears to use the same Price variable in the Component Panel of each object.  Does anyone know of some Ruby scripting that could be used to correct this?  Off hand, I'm thinking of a macro inserted into the Price variable on the Component Panel of each structural member that would use the Material List row context to report a price that depends on how the row wants to use the Price.

      Trying to figure out how the material list works and generates its numbers, Am a student and still relatively new at chief. Below is a project have been working on and this is the first time I have been asked to do a full material list. Have watched all the tutorials on it but cannot seem to find out why its giving such long 2x6 boards. The plan is attached below to look at.

      I am looking to set up X10 to create material lists for us instead of us filling out the material list with pen an paper after we "build" the house in chief. I have uploaded an example of our material list that we fill out by hand. Example 1.1 shows it filled out for a house we built and example 1.2 is the same but blank. Example 2.1 is a different version of the material list that we use as well. Is there a way to create like two different "defaults" for material lists so when I pull a plan from our base files it will auto-generate to make the material list? OR do I have to set up it per house, every time? Also what are the basic steps to create a materials list that will be closely similar to what I have attached here to show as a example if any? We are trying to stream line our process for ordering up materials and would like to have Chief figure out all the materials that are on the examples I provided. Any tips, tricks, advice would be greatly appreciated.
