Deck is being ignored by material list...

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

So I have a deck that isn't reporting to my material list. It generates framing correctly in plan and 3D. Its room assignment is correct but it still just is not reporting any of its materials to my take-off list.

Are you using X9?

 

It seems to work in X10.

Yes I am using X9. If I do a "by area" it gives me something similar to your output but still no finish decking material. If I do a "by room" I get zilch. I'm trying to do a "by room" as this deck is a recent ad on and the rest of my materials for the project have been exported into Excel...

If you want just the deck, try copying it to a new plan using Edit Area.

Thanks, never thought to do that. Any idea why it might be happening?

No clue. I never use the materials list.

That's cos Room ML only gives you what is inside the Room Polyline ie from the surfaces in......not the structure

 

STD Area Polyline Works (convert to a ML Polyline) BUT only for the Floor it is drawn on ie floor 1 and you need Floor 0 too, same issue will all Polyline Versions as far as I know.

 

A restricted Framing Schedule will Work..... but will include ALL decks...so Reassign your Front Entry "Deck" as a Porch maybe?.

Actually a Restricted View ( Decks and Walks Only) Full ML seems too work too

Generate a ML - Calculate From Area and draw a marquee around the deck - don't worry about including house walls and other objects - just make sure you just get the 1 deck.

You should probably get an empty ML.

Whilst in the ML, click on the Display Options tool.

The Material List Display Options dbx will open.

On the Categories panel, you will probably have nothing selected.

Check Decks-Walks (DW) - and anything else you need included (you can change this in Preferences if you want)

The ML list should update with just the Decks-Walks section showing.

 

I just reread Mick's post and this is what he was saying as well.

 

You can also control what displays in a ML by using the Mat column in the LDO dbx.

 

PS. I just noticed that you have Foam Underlay included in the floor finish of you deck at the front door.

Is that correct?
