countertops and materials list


Recommended Posts

using HD pro 2021 It looks like if i select a countertop material from the default or core catalogs it calculates square footage, but if i try to change that granite  to one from a manufacturer (cactus stone as shown below) it will not calculate the square footage.  does anyone know a way around this?  any help is greatly appreciated.

I see you said Pro 2021.



You can help everyone by adding that 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.

thank you, i am still working on the signature thing.


so i figured it out, you have to get the material you want and copy it into your library.  then you can open it for editing and change the calculation to area.  i did that and ran a new materials list and it worked.
