? For Mr. Macro ( Joe Carrick ) Or Anyone Else ...

Recommended Posts

Is it possible to write macros that would provide cut lists from roof planes for rafters, hips, ridge, etc.  ?

 

see attached .jpg ...

 

I know a material list polyline gives some information ....

Doesn't the material list give you all that?

You can filter by just category (Roofing).

 

PS. you need to set the default in Default Settings...Structural Member Reporting.

dont know much about metric, but material list in imperial setting doesnt seem to do ' round uo ' but rather lists rafter sizes as 13' 2"

for instance, instead of 14' ...

 

wouldnt a macro do that  ?

See Joe Carrick he has a marco that will do what you are looking for it shows up on each rafter, ridge and hip, and you can get a sq. ft. of the area of roof also, my builders love it when I put this on the print, even the lumber supplier likes it saves them a ton to time

There are 3 possibilities:

 

1.  Materials List - limited capabilities.

2.  Framing Schedule - not currently provided by Chief.

3.  Custom Macros to display the Labels

   a.  Labels can be formatted to display the data as desired

   b.  Lengths can be exact or rounded

   c.  Members can be accumulated and displayed as tabular lists.  (cut list or buy list)

 

I have a macro package that will Label all Framing - very close to what's shown in post #1.  I do not currently include the tabular lists but it would be possible.

 

I can't say what Chief might provide in any future version, but Labels as shown require more than it provides at this time.
