Material List - Tiles units (change to sqm)

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

I've modelled a 600x300mm tile using the Bonus Tile library (https://www.chiefarchitect.com/3d-library/index.php?r=site/detail/903).

To do this, I've taken a copy of the tile I want to modify and changed the x and y scale in the Define Material dialog.

 

When I select a room and output the Material List the tile is shown in absolute units (e.g. 63)

 

Couple of issues I have

* Since I've scaled the original tile, I'm not sure this number shows me how many 600x300mm tiles I need.

* My preference would be to see the tile amount in sq meters (similar to paint)

 

Is it possible to change the output to sq m?

(or is there a better method to model a 600x300mm tile that will give me a meaningful output in the material list?

Thank you.

Does the line just below (Thinset Mortar) give you the same figure?

Sorry for the delay, 

You're correct the thinset mortar gives correct amount.

Thank you.
