show component thickness in resource browser


during the design process walls, slabs, roofs not always keep the same thickness. Instead sometimes there can happen some changes. However, you often still keep the same wall/slab/roof-styles to design the building, you just modify the thickness of the bearing wall component, of the outer insulation,... However it's always necessary to note the total thickness or the thickness of some components in the style name, so everybody in the design-team can find the wished style easily. The problem is, that you have to fill in the changed thickness always more than one time. This can also cause some mistakes.


The best solution would be, enabling the resource browser to show the total wall thickness and all component sizes as well. So, somebody also for example could change the order of the displayed walls by their specific size.

Yes. That sounds good. We always fight with the same issue. Having the overall thickness of the wall as a seprate field would help a lot in maintaining a clean ressource manager.
