Material list not showing new wall framing

Recommended Posts

I designed a new bathroom. When I try to get a material list for the framing lumber, its not included. Only wallboard, trim and a few other items are listed, no studs.

What software are you using? Have you ordered framing to be built (in some HD titles it will not read framing unless you build it first)

You can help everyone by adding this info to your signature (see below for how to turn them on) 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.

Solver, I do not understand what you are referring to. "You can help everyone by adding this info to your signature (see below for how to turn them on) by clicking on your user name at the top right of the page, click Account Settings, then Signature on the left."   Adding what to my signature?  turning what on?

Ok, I have added in my signature what I'm running for software and the laptop I'm running.  I designed a new bathroom. When I try to get a material list for the framing lumber, its not included. Only wallboard, trim and a few other items are listed, no studs listed. Am, I not doing something correct?

You must build framing.

You have the option to turn on automatically rebuild framing, or just build framing once.

Thank you Eric, however, that didn't work either. I've tried everything I can find in videos, this forum and online

If you will attach your plan file (close Pro first), I'll take a look.

You do need to generate a new materials list when you make changes. If you add a wall for example, its framing will not show in an existing materials list.

Understood. Is that list above from the an area, room or overall plan? I cannot see any framing from any one room or area.

 

Thank you

I see. its from "All floors". That is a bit useful but shouldn't I be able to click a wall and get a material list from said wall? or one room or an area I select?

Have you looked in Help? It tells you what you need to know, and should be the first place you look with questions.
