Is there a way to have a single material with different finish options? I've been trying to simplify multiple things across my workflow, and materials seem to be the one thing that I just can't figure out on my own. In the past I've been ok with having a library of different materials that correlated to finish variations of the same substrate, but now that I've been working on creating automated worksheet reports it is become quickly apparent that this is only going to become an issue in the future due to how VWX pulls information. I had tried using records to do this, and it was working, but I really like the idea of using the material specifications if possible to remove more step. Is what I'm hoping possible somehow? I've only started getting into the more advanced features of VWX, so I wouldn't be surprised if I'm completely missing something. Thanks!
Looking at some of the pre-formatted reports for materials. Wondering why the 'materialsurfacearea' reports as '0'? I can get the area by changing the function 'area' but would like to understand the difference between the two. 'materialvolume' works as expected. Thanks in advance.
