Displaying Drywall Dimensions

Recommended Posts

Hi Guys,

I am looking for a way to display the drywall dimensions of each board for a ceiling to show placement to my guys. Is this possible?

Thx

Jim

What can be done is to assign a material with a white background and black pattern lines that are set to a pattern of 4' x 8' or whatever pattern you need and then only in a Vector view camera type you can see your 4" x 8" pattern lines and count your panels visually. Or you can do this via the materials list by assigning 4'x8' panels to the ceiling and the materials list tool will count them for you.

It is not actually panels in terms of the visible pattern assigned, but in terms of the Materials List, you can assign "Panels" as a material from the Library Browser called "Wall Board". So for visuals you assign an 4'x8' pattern and for the materials list and visible, you assign a wall board - 4'x8' wall board material. and for either or both you can adjust how the pattern and material start and stop on the ceiling by adjusting the X and Y input boxes which controls how the pattern and material "paint" across a surface.

PS: you do this via the Room Specification Dialog - Materials Tab
