Material List - Wall framing

Hi All,

Is there a way to designate a wall NOT to report its framing to the material list?  My objective is to create a material list that does not include existing elements in a remodel/addition project.

 

thanks,

George

What needs explaining? Not trying to be difficult -- just want to know where to focus.

 

Did you find the info in Help that I showed?

 

Define a material that does not report.

 

Define a wall type that uses this material/materials.

Eric,

 

I thought you were on to something good there but it appears that a Framing "Material Structure Type" cannot be defined as None in the "Materials List Calculation".   Using "Other" prevents the wall from framing all together and even if you frame and then paint it does not change the properties.

 

Possibly there is another way but I can't seem to make this one work.

This method assumes that you don't want ANY part of the wall construction to show in the ML (not just the framing) - like drywall, brick veneer, USB, insulation, etc, which makes sense if you don't want any of the existing included.
