Why doesn't my material list show other lumber components?

Recommended Posts

My material list for lumber is only giving me counts for studs, plates, and headers. I have built framing for the whole house, how come there are no quantities for Floor Joists, T&G OSB, etc...?

 

Thanks!

Someone is going to ask you to upload your model file here so they can look at it to see why you're having a problem with this.  If you do that people are more willing to jump in and help instead of guess at the issue.

Without looking I would say you need to go back and ensure you have specified all those other things to be built. Also, the materials list is just like other aspects of the program, there are "layer views" for the list. Do you have those items turned on?

Yes the wall assemblies have OSB, etc., and the joists are all on the plan. How do I turn on the "layer views" for the materials list?

Looks like they are there when I do a Calculate Materials For All Floors.

Yes, your materials list seems to pick it up. When I run a Materials List for All Floors, this is what I am shown. This is basically the entirety of the materials list.

You should probably contact Tech Support.  They will be able to walk you thru it, step by step.

If you go to Preferences>Materials List, are all the categories checked?

Or, when in a Materials List view, go to Tools>Materials List Display Options and make sure all categories are checked.

 Thanks Mick,

 

I usually  hesitate to specify a particular tool button because they can be customised, moved, deleted, etc.

I usually just go straight to the menu item which can't be edited.

I just saves a reply like "I can't find that tool button".

I mentioned it mostly as in X11 the Icon changed and no longer looks like the other Display Options Icons, but like a lot of stuff in CA, it is usually available thru the Icon or Menu methods.
