1. ## Worksheet & room finish & area calculation

I need to measure the room finish materials (cost calculation). Can we do it using the worksheet/database ? Thanks
2. ## Worksheet & room finish & area calculation

Thanks Michael! At last I could understand the process of material take-off! Your example gave me all the answers I needed. I thought it was much more complicated! uau. The response to While C message from 2008 about worksheet and foundations cost estimate was also a fundamental piece of useful information for me. Thanks to all. I see light in my worksheet quest :-)

4. ## Worksheet 255 characters per cell limit

Is there any workaround for this 255 characters limit per cell ?
5. ## Worksheet & room finish & area calculation

It seams a good ideia. I will try it. Yes the doors and windows all have user fields. This problem occurs with interior walls, when we use one wall to divide different spaces with different wall finishes. I don?t want to divide this wall?.but, perhaps it?s the fastest way to go. :-) Your information about VW is very useful and well explained, I will wait for your second Worksheet webinar. (Vectorworks has a lot of under covered potential.) thank you again PS:I am still using VW2011:-(
6. ## Worksheet & room finish & area calculation

Thanks Michael and Ken Michael, your webinar movie about worksheets, gave me a lot of important information. At last I could understand, how to use it, and the directional information; drawing<->worksheet :-) Thank you!! The VW manual is almost useless for me. Like Ken, I am creating a worksheet with all the classes used by NTE (Norma Tecnica Espanha) and it?s prices. It?s not 100% functional as I predicted, because of the different forms VectorWorks reads the information in hybrid or plug-in objects. The automation of the process of measuring the room-finishes are very important, and am studying it. Measuring the perimeter is ok, but then I need to know wish doors and windows are connected with each space?..IFC? The worksheet does not read IFC information does it?
7. ## Measuring Windows and Doors

How can I get the net glazed area used by windows and doors using the worksheet?? How can I get the DATA inside parametric plug-in using the worksheet formulas? I am creating a worksheet linked to all classes used within a 3D project Fachada-Vidro-FVC10:Duplo:Standard 4/6/5 Fachada-Vidro-FVC11:Duplo:Standard 5/6/6?. Each worksheet line has the name of each class, the linked formula (m2,m3,ud etc) and the price for each class. It is working, I have the totals and subtotals for each category, and the final cost of all the project. ?.but I am blocked to find the way to get information from windows and doors, using the built-in classes. Thanks

Thanks Jim.
9. ## Space Object text size setup

I am using VW Designer 2011. I need to resize the text of the Space Object to fit my actual 1:200 project scale. The text is to big. I am aware I can do this with 2012, but I have only 2011. Thanks
10. ## Space Object text size setup

Thanks Jim, The first video was the one that gave me a vision of what I needed to do. Space Object is treated as a symbol (attached to a database fields), and as such, I can create my own Space Object symbols, using the defaults folder. BUT?there is a problem, the Space Object symbol does not follow the layer scale. It does not accept the Scale Text option. If I setup this symbol to 1:200 scale, I can?t use it in 1:50 scale (to small). So I have to create a Space Object symbol for each scale ? Correct if I am wrong. Santiago Ribas
