Materials list for Selected Room

Recommended Posts


I have created a screen room off an existing house on an existing slab in Home Designer Pro. When I create a materials list for this new room, the software pulls in excessive amounts of project framing materials, including the existing wall the room attaches to. Please advise how to select only the walls and roof I want to be included in the materials list.

Have a look in the Help Menu at Marquee Select or Shift Select .....  select the 3 walls only , and the Roof Plane....>then see if the materials list will work/is an option , other wise the materials list from area Tool may work , drag the Marquee over the room carefully not touching the original house wall.

 

Note that the materials list isn't all that accurate , make sure you have built all your framing etc 1st.  and in the Edit>defaults>structural member reporting..... set how you want the Materials list output .  ( yeah not where I would of looked for it either :) )
