Material List IDs

Recommended Posts

Home Designer Architectural 2016

 

Hello,

In the Material List it shows the IDs: S1, S2, S3.....DW1, DW2....

OK. S for Siding, DW for Deck-Walks etc.

But where in the deck is DW1, DW2... How can I see/show this?

Thanks.

Answers often depend on which title (Suite, Pro etc) and version (2018, 2019 etc) you are using.

 

I see you said Architectural 2016, but you can help everyone by adding this info to your signature (see mine for an example) by clicking on your user name at the top right of the page, click Account Settings, then Signature on the left.

 

Doing so makes it always available, and keeps others from having to hunt for it.

 

And, turn on signature display too.

There is a new feature in the latest version -- not sure if Home Designer has it, that helps with locating materials.

 

I'd contact sales directly and ask.

The customer service/sales couldn't help me.

 

That's seem to be an old problem. 

I March someone asked more or less the same:

...but with NO answer!

 

But Acroplis said something very good:

"This should be simple to program..... if the data comes out of the HD software with a reference number, ..."

 

 

How can I find a material list item??
