Material list issues...

Recommended Posts

I have 2018 HDP. A brand new user to the program.  After i complete my drawing, how do i get a full material list with the materials i applied to the job. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.   Thank you in advance.  Example...the sheetrock walls arent showing up...only the ceiling rock count....Dave

Dave:

 

I don't use the ML so no advice there

 

while HDP users can benefit from following the Chieftalk forum since they have many of the same tools

this forum is aimed at users of Chief Premier

 

so understand that not all advice can be used by HDP - yet some can

 

another forum to follow is the Hometalk forum which is aimed for users of the HD products

 

also be aware that the ML is only as good as the model

using work-arounds etc have an impact on the ML

 

some ML users export to Excel and then continue to "massage" the info there

A material list is only as good as your model, so it need to be perfect to be accurate.

Thank you very much for the input.   I am a newbie to this.  Sorry for posting in the wrong forum.  I am a crazy person when it comes to detail.  I drive myself nuts for perfection...in anything i do...

it will require much manual effort to get perfection from the ML

 

sometimes it is a simple task to build an ML

 

for more complicated models and the more workarounds

the more manual effort is needed
