Material list - Labour Items

Recommended Posts

I am trying to figure out if I can do following with material list in CA Interior :


1) Material list brings entry of Flooring Tiles with quantity & specification, however in addition to this I want to add one more new item "Cost of Flooring" everytime flooring tiles are in material list, how do I do this ?

2) Similarly if I add any wallpaper, I want to add default item "Cost of wallpaper application" . How do I add such labour cost items for various categories of materials ?

1) You have various field at you disposal: Units / Extra / Markup / Labor / Equipment and total cost.


2) Select (highlight) items where the item number is . Go to tools update to master.

Open Master material list. Enter prices.


Next time when material list created, select all items and tools update from master.

      I need to calculate room square footages to give to our supplier to order flooring. I noticed when room areas are displayed along with the room labels, it is not calculated to the interior of the walls. Walls seem to be included, and some rooms seem to be different than others on how the calculation is done. Is there a way to adjust how these room calculations are done? Or do you have other advice on how to get this information for flooring square footages? The only options I have come up with so far are drawing a bunch of polylines in all the rooms or doing the math with the dimensions, and I was hoping for something easier. 
      Thank you

      I ran into this once before. I am setting my room types for each space, but the floors are not updating. The garage did.
      The Master has carpet, the tile shower has tile, etc.
      Any ideas of what I am missing?
      Thank you,

      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.

      I am trying to figure out how much wood floor to order for a job.  When i go to the materials list - the wood flooring category calculates the space by "ft" not Sq.Ft. which is not accurate.  So how do i change the calcualtion to be done as sq.ft. and not ft?

      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.
