The materials list function tabulates framing members as total linear feet as measured in the model. If you have not yet ordered framing to be built, then the count will be "zero" linear feet, after ordering framing built, it then tabulates the framing by size as linear feet.

I opened and looked using my copy of Pro 2015 but I did not read that KB article, I am glad I am wrong in this case, thanks Kat!

Use Cutlist or Buy list , and make sure the default List has the approximate sizes on it or you may see some weird numbers. Also the names on the List don't always match the names in the Program , ie it doesn't breakout subfascias (ML calls it a rafter) , so can be confusing even if you don't use the Total Lineal Ft. method.

 

Also know the Materials only allows for exactly what is in the model and only calculates many things on a sqft. basis, not per industry standard methods, if you want waste allowed for you must add it to the Extra Column yourself.

 

be careful bidding with these numbers , as none of the same things are allowed for either...hangers, bolts,nails glue etc etc etc.  ie not in the model , not in the list.
